Ramp Season is Here!

Docks are going in!
Spring has arrived! We were blessed with gorgeous weather at Deep Creek Lake over the Easter holiday and the temperatures are still rising as I type this. The trees are beginning to bud and the grass is becoming more green and lush. I’ve always been a big fan of the smell of fresh cut grass but the first time you smell it in the spring brings a sense of relief that you can hopefully pack away the winter gear and bring out the flip flops! There are a lot of activities and things to do here at Deep Creek this season and the perfect time for a quick weekend getaway. If you really want to experience some of the unique qualities of our mountainous region, then you should most definitely check out one of the many local Ramp Dinners or Ramp Festivals. If you are unfamiliar with Ramps, they are essentially wild onions that are known for their “Stink”. Ahh, yes, these small round bulbous onions are quite pungent (to smell in general and particularly when ingested). They do however have a wonderful sweet taste. Many local chefs in our area will often creatively use them to create delectable dishes. This Saturday April 26th @ The Deep Creek Discovery Center, they will be holding their 13th Annual Ramp Cook Off where the public is invited to either submit a dish for judging or just be part of the public tasting. The event begins from 11- 1pm. A panel of judges will be judging the ramps on ramp flavor, presentation, and creativity. If you are looking for a fun family activity that also gives you a glimpse into some of our local folklore, you should definitely check it out.

Golf is another fun activity to do if you are visiting us this spring. With numerous golf courses in our area, you certainly have your choice of where to play. For those that are staying in our Waterfront Greens Community, you also get free play of the 3 par community golf course. Plan a couple’s getaway and while half the party spends the day on the greens, the other half can schedule one of our local massage therapists to come to the house and do on-site massage therapy. So whether you are coming for specific event or just to get away, there is definitely something for everyone. Give us a call here at Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacations (1-866-351-1119 or online www.deepcreekvacations.com) and we will be more than happy to help you plan your itinerary throughout your stay. The sun is shining, the sky is blue and we can’t wait to see you at the lake!
