Who doesn't like the 020Bos? It is THE place to make love under the stars (if you know where to go to have some privacy), to go skinny dipping, as well as go with your kids and/or dig to walk, sport, picknick etc etc

A lot of walking but so peaceful and beautiful. Visiting the goat farm for ice cream is a must do if you go. There is a great place to relax at the farm. Food was affordable and it was free to visit
