“Lake on the Mountain defies all geographical and geological theory. Cloaked in mystery and legend, the turquoise lake is a source of amazement with beautiful views of the Glenora Ferry and the edge of the County escarpment. Grab a picnic and enjoy the views. Or post up at The Miller House for a glass of vino and a charcuterie board. ”

“East & Main is, in my opinion, the best restaurant in town and one of the best in the County. Their menu is just fabulous, with generous sizes, great presentation and, more importantly, delicious. The service has always been excellent and the ambience is perfect. I recommend going for lunch, as it becomes more affordable, but if you want to impress, dinner time is the right choice. Make sure to make a reservation in the high season!”

“In my opinion this is the best brewery to visit in PEC. The beer is excellent but more than that the brewery building itself is beautiful. A large wooden building with a beer hall vibe inside and a large patio leading out to a lawn with a firepit and some games like horseshoes. The food here is AMAZING. It is Argentinian and revolves around delicious grilled meats and veggies. I highly recommend getting the platter of all the different meats. It can be paired with other nearby breweries like Prince Eddy’s and 555 Brewing. ”

“Use the park pass to gain free entry to this natural beauty. The water has a bit more attitude and a more aggressive surf than the Sandbanks, but a great beach to visit.”
