Well, fellow TA members, you proved very helpful (as usual) when I was looking for lodging, which I was able to get from your recommendations of Airbnb site, and we already booked a beautiful rural house in Ancram . Now, for the easy stuff, what to do? Where to shop? And where to eat?! We will be setting there with plenty of free time for 2 weeks waiting for our kid to finish his tenor at Camp Hi-Rock, Mt. Washington, MA.
As “ancient” Egyptians we are not that fond of antiques!! We (actually my wife!) will be more vulnerable to major discount outlets shopping. We located Lee Premium Outlet as a major outlet nearby; any similar suggestions would be great.
Green nature escapes, lakes, waterfalls and other “hidden and secluded” gems known only by locals would be a great treat for us.
As for dining, nothing fancy or European (we have those over here), real local dining options, good burgers, bagels, steaks, deep dish pizza..etc.
Hope not asking for too much, your favorite stuff will most probably be ours as well!
