THE spot. It is always busy but they are quick to seat you. Try the brisket or the portobello sandwich! They also do take out right up to when they close at 9pm so if you're at the house and need a quick option, this is great!

Thornewood Preserve
Park at Windy Hill so when you end your hike it is all downhill back to the car! Through tons of research and lots of trial & error we've discovered the ultimate route: Spring Ridge > Meadow > Hamm's Gulch > Lost > Anniversary > Spring Ridge > Betsy Crowder (7.2 miles total). This path provides the perfect balance between difficulty vs. ease and magical forest vs. endless open terrain.

Mouthwatering burgers and beer just up the road at the Alpine Inn. This place has a super unique vibe that is somewhere between biker bar and old cowboy saloon. The food and beers here are both delicious and cheap, and there's a good selection of beers on draft.
