    We love the Capitol Theatre for music, plays, Red Carpet....all events! The venue is beautiful, historic yet modern and the staff who are almost all volunteers do everything in their power to make one's experience excellent!
    Last nights concert featuring The Box was no exception, the band was outstanding, the crowd was mighty, and we had another fabulous night at the theatre:)

    We have been here before, but this venue has expanded from 3 years ago. Some unique shopping ideas from furniture to wall hangings and nick nacks with everything in between. Most items are hand-made with imports from all over the world. The main building houses the majority of the products with added rooms and some smaller out-buildings. The large displays, primarily outdoors, consist of huge pieces of sculpture made of 'nuts and bolts and gears' welded together....very unique. It's definitely a destination..

    Maplecrescent Farm offers several different length of horseback trail rides (as well as boarding and the leasing of horses). The horses are well kept, the trail guides are constantly concerned about your safety and well-being (as well as the horses) and do everything they can to make the ride enjoyable.

    We came to watch the salmon run. We were not disappointed because there were 2 or 3 fish jumping every 10 seconds. Lots of fish were waiting or recuperating. We saw many wounded ones swimming near the shore. Most of the jumping fish landed on the concrete walls. The small opening (ladder) is supposed to allow the fish to jump into and then swim upstream. We saw only the smaller fish jumped through it. It was only after the workers opened the gate and let more water to rush through it that we saw more and bigger fish tried to jump through it. Maybe the rushing water is the guide for the fish to jump. My observation is most of fish failed in this struggle. Many people said it is a sad thing to watch these big fish jumped and failed and died.

    I am never disappointed. Olinda Casimiro does an excellent job as Executive Director. I've seen the current exhibit by Amanda McCavour "Pink Field, Blue Fog" three times. The Gallery is also a friend to local talent; its yearly juried exhibit is always a highlight of the year.

    Probably a great place if you live close enough to drive. They have beautiful furniture that unfortunately would not fit in my luggage! I was mostly looking for collectibles and on that particular day, I didn't see many, but definitely worth a stop in.

    Sylvan Glen is a hidden spot where you can engage in some quality time among natural surroundings. The Ganaraska River flows through and there are always signs of wildlife to enjoy. A path runs along the river.
