Local Activities

Winter is here! The return of our cool, crisp mountain weather doesn’t get too much in the way of all the great outdoor activities in the area. The folks just down the road at Fort Mountain State Park have worked hard these last months in making many improvements to the grounds, hiking trails and lake area, so be sure to stop and have a look – and ask them about their “Black Bear Plunge”! The winter landscape is beautiful this time of year, whether you’re “out and about” or spending the day or evening snuggled in front of the fireplace, watching from the warmth and comfort of your cozy room – or, hot tub!!
