    The sites are nice. There is nothing for kids to do unless you take them somewhere. My kids brought Razr's - they weren't allowed to use them. They were rather rude about the fact that we brought them

    There is a lot of bike trails in the area so I'm sure there is one nearby but I can't say with 100% certainty. My fiance an I don't ride bikes so we weren't really looking for them. sorry I couldn't be more help.
