We had so much fun getting away. We didn’t do this on one day but spent one night at the last stop which made the trip more relaxing. We went at our own pace knowing we did not need to rush through. Will definitely do another trip.

Been before, but discovered new things!

I've been to this particular area before but we were impressed with how many more things there are to do in this area. Can't wait to try another trip! Tiny Town Tour is next on my list.
