We see a lot of visitors at Seven Oaks from all over the state of Iowa as well as our bordering states.............a lot come for the day but a lot also come for a weekend of fun and relaxation. Of course this time of year a lot of folks are tent camping at Seven Oaks before or after their full service river float. In the winter we see several ski, snowboard or snow tube for two or three days...........not many camping during those months but instead stay at one of the partner hotels of Seven Oaks. The hotel we have partnered with for the longest period of time is the Baymont Inn and Suites.....in fact I just spent an overnight there last week.......and yes I took advantage of the pool and hot tub....they are located just a couple miles away from Seven Oaks.
But with that said I wanted to mention here that there are a lot of interesting things to do when you come to Boone County. Make a week of it or a weekend..........recreate at Seven Oaks and take a ride on one of the train rides offered by The Boone and Scenic Valley Railroad. You will find www.scenic-valleyrr.com has all the information you will probably need about their variety of rides and the new museum as well. You might be at The Lodge at Seven Oaks attending one of the many class reunions or wedding receptions.......so before you make the drive home be sure to check out the train rides when you are here.
I plan to highlight some more of the many attractions in Boone County in upcoming posts...........golf, racing, wineries, bridges, bike trails, parks, group camps...........so much to see here.
As you can well imagine we are really busy with this current heat wave............not just today and tomorrow but a lot of reservations being made for this weekend and Independence Day too.
