Events on the Northern Avalon – July 5 – July 12


Once upon a time, people used to make a once or twice yearly “excursion around the bay” for an afternoon. The “bay” has changed. Summer 2010 is filled with events for all ages and all tastes, and there are numerous quality places to stay from five star B&Bs to camping grounds. Instead of an afternoon, make plans to spend a mini-vacation or a long weekend. For information on accommodations, places to eat, and craft stores and gift shops, see northernavalon.com > >
