For anyone who’d like to visit some area points of interest after the party commences, here are a few of our favorites for your trip planning convenience:
Blue Hole Trail
One of 22 trails in South Cumberland State Park, the Blue Hole Trail, is a 1.1-mile-long path enjoyed near Altamont. Used for hiking and nature walks down to a crisp, refreshing swimming hole, the Blue Hole is suggested from March through October. You can bring your dog along if kept on a leash.
Brown’s Dairy Bar
Within 6 miles of the Manor’s doorstep stands Brown’s Dairy Bar. With an extensive menu of affordable, large portions available, you’ll be glad you came for the hamburgers, grilled cheese, salads, pizzas, hot dogs, fried okra, or creamy ice cream sundaes. Open for lunch and dinner from 11:00 am to 10:00 pm, Brown’s is located on Highway 108 in Grueti-Laager. It’s been in operation for 40 years.
Stop and Go Tavern
In the mood for an ice-cold beer? Stop into the cozy Stop and Go Tavern on Highway 108 in Altamont for a frosty brew and a game of pool, darts, or cornhole. Enjoy live music or play the jukebox for some old-style tunes and dancing. Don’t feel like sitting at the bar? There’s a drive-thru window for ordering your beer to take home instead.
Los Portales Mexican Restaurant
If you’re a fan of Mexican cuisine, try the very nearby Los Portales Mexican Restaurant, located just 0.2 miles from the Manor in Altamont. Locals recommend the hot fajitas for dinner and ice cream desserts if you still have room. Prices are about average for a Mexican restaurant. Depending upon the size of the crowd dining, you may need to wait a while, but it won’t be too long.
