This one will be two full days with a delightful stay at the beautifully renovated Fredonia Hotel. We'll have time to visit the Living History museum at Millard's Crossing that we missed two years ago when our tour to this wonderfully historic town was too short by far!
We'll have time to relax, enjoy the Arboretum, the Old University Building, the Durst Taylor House and Gardens, the Railroad Depot, the Lanana Creek Trail, as well as the beautiful Oak Grove cemetery and the great downtown where you can shop til you drop! If you loved the last visit, you'll really enjoy this one. And the Joye Mobile will be newly renovated!
