  1. Wow, What a great listing of events and activities for your guests to do. As a guests of B&B's, I can truly appreciate the thought that goes into knowing and previewing activities like this that would be amazing to attend.

    Your list includes great options for vacationers of all ages to see and do.

    My name is Marc, and aside from loving to travel and visit B&B's, I also work with Bescover. We offer an online directory of bed and breakfasts, as well as provide mobile technology for innkeepers like yourself.

    I would like to invite you to to share pictures, inn information, or links to your blog on our facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/bescover
