"go every year"

We visit her every year for our family reunion. But other than the pavillions and parks-- theres tons more to do there. Hiking, see a church built around a rock, waterfalls, much more. Great place to spend a Saturday with a picnic. Don't forget that they hold wedding and other events there as well. Beautiful.
