As the weather begins to take a turn for the warmer, life in the mountains is beginning to look a lot like spring. There are still a lot of activities going on in the area so now is an awesome time to come up and stay at the Lake. Wisp Resort is hosting their annual Beachin’ Weekend party extravaganza this weekend with the main event featuring the Cardboard Box Derby that will be held on Saturday @ 3 pm. This exciting event raises funds to help sponsor the Maryland Special Olympics. Requirements insist that all “vessels” be made out of cardboard. It’s a lot of fun to see how creative each team can be in their design and creation. Of course, the next inevitable question is whether said vessel is able to successfully make it to the bottom of the mountain with or without their cargo. After being cooped up inside for the last several winter months, now is also a fantastic time to get some fresh air and enjoy a leisurely hike around Swallow Falls State Park. Housing the largest waterfall in the state of Maryland, this is true must see for anyone visiting our area! Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacations would also like to welcome Dick Davis and his crew from Oak Island Accommodations this week. They are here to do cross training with our staff. It’s always a pleasure to meet with colleagues to brain storm and share ideas. It’s an added bonus when you get a spirited, fun group like OIA. So, welcome friends! The air is fresh and crisp, temperatures are warming up a much needed getaway is in your near future! Call Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacations today (1-866-351-1119) to check on some of the fabulous last minute deals we are offering, including our “Stay 3 Nights for the Price of 2” special that is running now until the end of April.
