“The Greenbelt is more than 3 times the size of Central Park!!!! Picturesque, with forests, meadows, wetlands, ponds and parks, there’s so much to enjoy. The hiking trails range in difficulty for hikers and bikers. Great for birdwatchers, many birds call the Greenbelt home. Go to their website, for trail maps and information on seasonal programs.”

“Great Italian atmoshpere. The couple who run it are from Sicily. We know them very well and get treated like family. They offer free fresh baked bread and homemade ricotta with honey and spices. My favorite pizza is the Beesting, ask them to add truffle oil to it. ”
