Touring Howe Caverns is an interesting, educational experience the kids will enjoy. You take an elevator down, then walk along looking at the various cave features. Towards the end, you reach water and enter longboats for the rest of the tour. At one point, they shut the lights off so you can experience total darkness. Dress warm with a jacket or sweater, as it is consistently about 52 degrees year round, regardless of the temperature outside!
Local Ice cream parlor and candy shop. Featuring cones, sundaes, smoothies, N.Y. egg creams, shakes and malts made with Double Rainbow ice cream. Delicious!!
Located right on Rt. 10, Shangri-Lee excels at the standards and is known for its delicately seasoned, full-flavored yet somehow lightly cooked main dishes. Dim sum buffet on weekends.
My son is a freshman at this school and he absolutely loves it! He wanted to go here for the aqua-tech program, as he is very ocean oriented. Had to apply to this school, get good grades and recommendations from teachers to get in, just like college..even though it is a high school. Part of the curriculum is sailing and boating, and the students often stop on the sandbars at low tide to pick up litter. He is doing much better in school now that he views it as a fun place to be, which definitely promotes learning! They are even raising their own lobsters to eat at a party at the end of the year! An excellent place for the student interested in pursuing a career along the lines of marine biology.
