What are the best places to stay for kids?
The Best Western Plus is the best place to stay for kids of all ages. The indoor pool and proximity from the road makes this hotel the best place for kids to have a safe places and an activity if the weather makes you wait out a storm in the pool. This hotel is the closest to the Amish.
What are the best places for adults with no kids?
Winnie's b&b is the best place for the best chance of a child free stay. Call her to make sure no one has booked a stay with any kids in her additional room because she does allow kids 12 and over if they are well behaved. Just across the road is our best restaurant as well!
What are the best places to stay with pets?
The David Crockett Park Cabins are the best place to stay with pets. They cost a small fee but assuming you're traveling with cats or dogs and not an alligator, the park has many walking trails to take them on. The park restaurant has a dog park next door where they can play.
Where can I find vegetarian meals?
Some of our asian buffets' have vegetarian options and The Brass Lantern has a few options but there are no vegetarian or vegan dedicated restaurants in Lawrence county as of the writing of this faq. Most of the Mexican restaurants have a vegetarian option to their fajitas and burritos and Deb-O's Pizza has vegetarian pizzas available. In my research i couldn't find any vegan option since there are different variations of vegetarian people and we want to offer options to fit every choice. We will try and update this FAQ if a place opens with vegan or vegetarian options in the future.
What about diabetic and sugar free clean foods?
You would think that a place known for retirees would be diabetic friendly, they are not. We do have a few places who have sugar free and diabetic friendly meals but they are not many. One example was a breakfast place that had sugar free jellies and jam but they had to throw away their stock due to customers never asking for it. Unfortunately a lot of diabetic and food allergy prone people eat what they shouldn't eat here while they are on vacation so the businesses do not keep products to facilitate them. Just ask your server or go online and message the restaurant for more information on their food ingredients.
Can I buy local products to cook at my kitchen?
Yes! Shaffers Custom Meats and Texas BBQ has local meats and exotic products to cook over your own campfire or stove. Pete's Meats in Loretto has locally harvested meats and Taylor family farms has a whole range of meats and vegetables for sale in their store! While out at Taylor Farms you can go to the nearby Flowers Creamery and get local milk and cheese along with other local made eats! If you want a lot of it, and you're here during growing season. Plowboy Produce Auction is your best place for Amish vegetables!
ADA Compliance of local buildings?
Unfortunately many of the buildings here in Lawrence county are historic buildings that do not have to be ADA compliant because they fall outside of the age the law dictates the ADA laws apply to. But many of the building are ADA compliant. You shouldn't have any problems getting in to most buildings with wheelchairs or walking assistants.
Are there disabled meetups or groups?
Yes! Abigail's Plan ball field is a place where mainly kids with disabilities can play together or meet others with disabilities. There are plans to build the Abigail's Playground in the towns of Summertown and Loretto that would include ADA playground equipment that would allow wheelchairs to be swung and go down slides! Also autism sensory is included in these playgrounds. Check with meetup.com or other meetup clubs for any local groups that come up between the time we are making this page and your visit.
What disabilities does your area have trouble with?
I must say the blind and the hearing impaired may have more trouble than those people with other disabilities. Our road crossings only have cross tones at major intersections. Wheelchair and walkers should be ok at most places. Very few tour operators are skilled in sign language so you may need to pick up a pamphlet or read up on our places of interest before you come. Contact Us if you need a certain kind of help that is unique and we will try our best to facilitate your needs.
