Phil's Burrow

Reviewed By CackyWalker

The burrow is inside the county library. The sun was in the wrong position to take a picture through the bullet proof glass. The groundhogs were sleeping and they were hard to see. We went inside the library to get a clearer view and the view of the ground hogs was obstructed by rocks. There were flies everywhere around their food.

The Discovery Center is a great place for children as it has many hands on activities for them. Very interesting facts about weather and there is a very educational 20 minute film you can watch. The staff was very friendly.

Yoder Antique Mall

Reviewed By gardengadabout - Virginia

Whoa, this place is a lot to take in as it is 3 stories of everything imaginable... at least that's how it seemed. Give yourself some time to browse; this is one of the larger antique stores that I've ever visited. There's an eclectic and diverse dry goods section at the front with some very good bargains, depending on what you're looking for. This is the kind of place where you just don't know what you might find till you get in there and start shopping. It is a museum, of sorts, and definitely an interesting diversion. It's also hard to not find a little something with your name on it, just waiting to be bought. :)

Mahoning Shadow Trail

Reviewed By Frank T - Randolph, Massachusetts

We had an amazing time walking here. At one point I just shut my eyes and listened to the sounds of nature around us. The views are breath taking and you are sure to see some wild life. I almost stepped on a baby snapping turtle it blended in with the stone trail path. There are also a ton of spots to stop and take nature photographs. We visited in the summer I would love to see this area in all four seasons to see the changes in the foliage and the wildlife we may get a glimpse of.

Escape Room Punxsy

An interactive entertainment experience for family, friends, and small groups. Find hidden objects, crack the code, race the clock, and complete the mission in this real life escape game.

Reviewed By Chase P

Very fun activity to do in the area. Staff is very friendly and helpful when needed while in escape room. Only downside is a homemade Morris code device which was very difficult to read & decipher, but other than that it was fun!
