As I mentioned in my previous blog, my family decided to take a few days and really immerse ourselves in life around Deep Creek Lake. After spending days enjoying swimming and playing in the lake, we decided we needed a day of games and adventure. We started with a wonderfully delicious meal @ Smiley’s Fun Zone where we enjoyed dining out on the deck. Afterwards, we headed to the mini-golf course where things got a little competitive. I tried to rearrange my numbers in my favor but they quickly caught on when they realized that I was not making a hole in one for every hole! Afterwards, we headed over to the arcade and tried out some games. (I highly recommend that you try the virtual reality game that makes you feel as if you are propelling through the air on a roller coaster, airplane, etc. This big kid found it to be a blast and had to play it several times!)

Our next stop was Wisp Resort which has a lot of cool, fun activities for all ages. We chose to take the scenic chair lift ride to the top and back. This is a “Must Bring Camera” event because the view that you see when you come down is truly one of the most breathtaking views of the lake and surrounding mountains. Showcasing the McHenry Cove, the view actually stretches out for several miles creating a fantastic photo op! Of course after watching all of the people zip down the mountain on the mountain coaster and clearly loving it, we had to try that ride as well. Definitely a lot of fun and for wimps like me, you get to control the speed as you go down! We ended our adventure with a stop at Trader’s Coffee House where we all enjoyed fruit smoothies made with fresh fruit! In conclusion, we can easily see why Deep Creek is becoming “the place to vacation” ~ amazing scenery, cool and fun activities, great places to dine and you can’t beat swimming in the lake on a hot summer day!
