Where’s the Best Place to Soak Up the Sun in Your Destination?
I love that it is a fairly unknown Civil War battle location and also the history behind the Tunnel. It is a unique find in this area and not flooded with tourists as many spots around us can be.
What Place or Activity is in On Your Bucket List?
The lake is in town and has a beautiful 3.5-mile walking/biking trail around it. Fishing piers, a boating dock for paddle boats, canoes and kayaks, a picnic pavilion, an amphitheater/outdoor classroom, and a nature-themed playground are all available for visitors of the park. They also offer kayak rentals, if someone doesn’t own one.
I have hiked the trail many times and even seen our “Sasquatch” on the trail, but I have yet to get to experience the park from the lake and want very much to do that. The views at the park are beautiful especially sunrise and sunset. Hopefully this summer, I will get out on the water there and mark it off my bucket list.
