Point of Interest
“A park with lots of options: plenty of paved as well as wooded walk paths, a playground for the kids, seasonal recreations (e.g. ice skating) and if you get hungry, there are some restaurants right there.”

Indian Restaurant

“It's a drive getting out there, but if you want the most authentic Indian food you can find, we're pretty sure this is it. It scores very low in fanciness--food, which you order for yourself at a counter, is served on paper plates in a setting that feels more like a rental car office than a restaurant. But the food! Also, the only Indian bakery in town that we're aware of.”
