Such a fun trips!

My husband and I took our two kids (10 and 14) and everyone loved it! We did walk a total of 5 miles or so throughout the day, so be prepared with comfy shoes. We went in November and finished our day with the last of the sunlight - perfect timing! In summer we’d’ve had more time, but fall was so beautiful. We may do the whole trip again sometime!
