A little pond just 2 minutes drive from our place. This pond's goal in life is to teach kids how to fish. In fact, it's illegal to fish there if you are above 14 without kids' supervision.

Gorgeous but touristy. Worth a trip if you've never been. Especially over the week when it's not as busy. Be prepared for a long walk down (around 30 mins) and then up.

Huge outside sitting area. Large beer selection that they change every week or so. You can bring your own food, but they also have a vendor onsite that sell tacos, hotdogs, etc. A great place to relax after a beach or mini golf which is right next door.
