This is a great venue for watching a movie at night or shopping during the day! There is a swap-meet held here every weekend and on Wednesdays. Great things are waiting for you to find!

The drive-in is still so much fun! I love taking my son and his friends. We have a blast. The Mexican food there is so good too. Seriously love it. I highly recommend grabbing some blankets and checking it out!
