Favorite thing about the area?
My favorite thing about this area is the abundance of outdoor activities that are available in every season.

If you only had a couple of days to spend in Deep Creek, what would you recommend doing? (Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter)
I would recommend hiking at Swallow Falls in any season. In the summer, it’s fun to go to Deep Creek State Park and rent paddle boards or kayaks for a few hours and then relax on the beach. In the winter I would highly recommend the tubing at Wisp.
