There's lot's to do….. or, if you prefer, do nothing at all.

Hike.  Visit historical sites.  Golf.  Fish.  Paint.  Write.  Take photos.  Bird watch.  Quilt, craft and scrap book.  Picnic.  Shop for antiques. 

Host a retreat or team building week.  Do yoga.  Gather your group for bible study, meditation, reunions, and girl friend get-aways.  Stroll out into the fresh air for a nature walk or star gazing.

Explore quaint towns.  Visit wineries, breweries and distilleries.  Take a ride on a vintage air plane.  Tailgate at a polo match.   Pan for gold.  Tour gardens and historical homes.  Bike.  Read a book. 

Pick a pumpkin at a pumpkin patch and meander thru a corn maize.  Shop farmers' markets for local fruits and veggies, fresh eggs, jams, jellies and pies. 

Take in a stage show at a near by dinner theater.    Enjoy vintage movies at Pony Hill, the Library of Congress Movie Archives. Create a classical music camp and bring your students.

Or...... just relax on the porch.
