“The Pretzel Hut dates back nearly half a century. Long ago, it was the place to stop for fresh, soft pretzels. Pretzels are still served, but the name exists as a tribute to the past customers. The inside of the restaurant has a charming Coca Cola decor and seats about 45. Outside are picnic tables and children's play area, complete with an ever-changing live animal exhibit! If you want a little more adventure and exercise you can access the horseshoe trail and hike for miles. ”
