Best Kept Secrets Tour

An ever-changing group of off-the-beaten track businesses have created a shopping / food and fun adventure just for you!  Hand picked for their uniqueness, these businesses are "best kept secrets".  Travel place to place, on the back roads and through the countryside, enjoying all the special free things (demonstrations, gifts, refreshments, games, drawings, seminars, etc.) the businesses have planned for you.  Go where you want when you want.  Your ticket is valid during the entire tour so spend a day or do it every day---it's up to you.  You'll also receive coupons from every business and lots of free goodies!  The businesses are varied so there's something for everyone . . . home furnishings, gifts, farm markets, crafts, stores & galleries housed in historic buildings, unusual food stores, antiques, farms with products (for example: cheese, gourds, alpaca sweaters), florals, unusual cafes, artist's studios, wineries, orchards, greenhouses, jewelry, clothing, books, and more.  Don't miss the fun.  Although the businesses are throughout the county if you follow our path you will never drive more than 15 miles between places and most are closer together than that.  You'll be pleasantly surprised by the stores you'll find tucked in the countryside.  What a fun way to explore!
