What are the best hotels to stay for kids?
The Best Western Plus is the best place to stay for kids of all ages. The indoor pool and proximity to the road make this hotel the best place for kids to have safe places and activities if the weather makes you wait out a storm in the pool. In addition, 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. It's 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. In addition, 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. Still, there are no vegetarian or vegan dedicated restaurants in Lawrence county as of the writing of this FAQ. Most Mexican restaurants have a vegetarian option with their fajitas and burritos, and Deb-O's Pizza has vegetarian pizzas available. I couldn't find any vegan option in my research 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 have a few places with sugar-free and diabetic-friendly meals, but they are not many. One example was a breakfast place with sugar-free jellies and jam, but they had to throw away their stock because customers never asked for it. Unfortunately, many diabetic and food allergy-prone people eat what they shouldn't eat here while on vacation, so the businesses do not keep products to facilitate them. Ask your server or go online and message the restaurant for more information on their food ingredients.
Can I buy local products to cook in my kitchen?
Yes! Shaffer Farms Custom Meats and Texas BBQ have local meats and exotic products to cook over your 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 at Taylor Farms, you can go to the nearby Flowers Creamery and get local milk, cheese, and other locally made eats! If you want a lot of it, ensure you're here during the 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 the age the law dictates the ADA laws apply. Still, many of the buildings are ADA compliant. So you shouldn't have problems getting into most buildings with wheelchairs or walking assistants.
Are there disabled meetups or groups?
Yes! Abigail's Plan ball field is 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, including 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 make this page and your visit.
What disabilities have more issues in the area?
The blind and the hearing impaired may have more trouble than those with other disabilities. Our road crossings only have cross zones at significant intersections. Wheelchairs and walkers should be ok in most places. 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.
