|Visit the Children's APPLE MUSEUM and meet Johnny Appleseed, visit the honeybee room, and see what's happening in the orchard during all four seasons of the year. Children love the Kid's apple kitchen. Hold on tight as you exit through the dizzying vortex tunnel.|
|Hillcrest's playground is always a big hit with a giant 50 foot slide, smaller slides for little children, and a great zip line. On your way to the Farmhouse Museum, ask to see the Moonshine Museum with several working stills.|
