In the mood for a swim? As you know, pools can be environmentally unfriendly, but a community pool is the best way to reduce the number of pools in a city or town. For a small fee have a dip in the town's pool and stay environmentally friendly!

Dog Park

The Dog is Man's/Woman's best friend! Many visitors come with their pets and residents like to take their pets out of the house now and then.  Unfortunately most hotels in the area do not allow pets.  We will be doing research to find out who allows pets and who does not.  Please be sure to check the "Stay in WF" tab for more information!
