Upcoming Winter Fun! We're just getting started around here!
Late January and February will as usual prove to be a great time to visit the area - lots of special events and things to enjoy in addition to all of our wonderful winter outdoor activities. I would also remind everyone to catch a movie at The Strand Theater and see the exhibits at VIEW while in town. Also I'd like to give a shout out to Randy's Restaurant in Old Forge - quickly becoming a favorite spot for dinner for this family!
