My daughter and I have done this trip and will do it again. I have since gifted it to two other people. So much to do.
The Fairy Tale Trail
A few of the places were closed, and the weather did not cooperate with the outdoor activities. Other than that it was great to experience some unknown spots!
We took our two daughters on this adventure! The girls loved it! There were so many hidden gems we wouldn't have found on our own!
I took my niece and my dog on this adventure and we had so much fun! Even though we live in the area we explored, there were many hidden gems we didn't know about. We did run out of time but we will definitely do the rest of the trip on another day. Highly recommend.
