Outdoor Recreation

While visiting you may want to check out some of the other recreational options in our area. Attending a film festival involves a lot of sitting, taking some time to get outdoors in the mornings to stretch your legs at Ladd Marsh might be nice, or bring your bike or boots along and hit some trails at Mount Emily Recreation Area.  For a good guide into your options visit: The Union County Chamber of Commerce


Thank you for being here. Enjoy the Valley.
