We are officially in the fall season as the air tends to dip lower in the evenings and the trees are starting to take color. In a few weeks, our leaves will begin to peak just in time for our annual Autumn Glory Festival, which is by far, my favorite Garrett County tradition! Days of fun-filled activities and definitely something for everyone in your group. If you haven’t planned your fall getaway yet, this is the place to be! Days of craft shows, classic car shows, antiquing, Farmer’s Market are just to name a few! The festival is highlighted with a grand parade that winds down through the streets of Oakland, our county seat! Marching bands, clowns, elaborately festive floats, music and the list goes on! Balloons, souvenirs, delicious food vendors, and well…. I said that the list goes on! It’s just such a fun family friendly atmosphere that you must see to believe! If you can’t make it that weekend, please mark a weekend in October to come up and witness the breathtaking fall foliage that is Deep Creek Lake. It’s phenomenal and so peaceful here this time of year! Okay, now the thought is in your head…a weekend at Deep Creek Lake! Are you dialing yet ? (1-866-351-1119 or online www.deepcreekvacations.com) We can’t wait to see you at the lake!
My boys & I were feeling a little playful the other day & since Smiley’s Fun Zone is one of Deep Creek’s most popular “play grounds”, we decided to head there! What an arrangement of fun activities for kids of all ages (and clearly, adults too!) Speed along the outdoor go kart course or try to soak your competition in the Smiley’s Bumper Boats! For those who like a slower pace, grab your clubs and try a round of mini-golf. The best thing about Smiley’s is that there are so many activities to choose from that you can literally make a whole day of it. We then enjoyed a delicious light lunch out on the deck. They have a large menu that includes pizza, wraps, salads, and more (not to mention their large variety of wings!) The kid’s menu has a nice selection to choose from and for those that need to keep entertained while waiting for the meal (Me!) they offer crayons to color the menu! To me, it’s just a nice place to eat while you enjoy the beautiful scenery of McHenry Cove. Afterwards, we spent some time inside playing arcade games and the boys finished with a rousing game of laser tag! All in all, it was a very successful day of family fun! I highly recommend that you bring out the inner kid in you and take the family!

September has taken off with a blast and it’s hard to believe we are already rolling into the 2nd week already. If you were visiting our area last weekend then you may have been lucky enough to attend our annual Deep Creek Art & Wine Festival. What an awesome turnout! There was a large variety of not just wine samples but a lot of awesome artisans and vendors. Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacations & Sales was there and we loved seeing so many of our homeowners and guests enjoying themselves. (Sandwiched between Deep Creek Sweets and Firefly Farms was a little rough. The smell of delicious fudge, smooth goat cheese and every wine imaginable was beyond tempting; we did some shopping on our own!) The Bounce House was a great hit with the kids and everyone enjoyed dancing and singing along to the various bands that were playing. Such a fun event! If you missed this year, please mark your calendars now and plan to attend!
