Head to downtown Bedford for lunch at Azul (Tex-Mex) or Town Kitchen & Provisions (sandwiches with names like Friar Cluck and Loretta Lynn, salads & sides).  

Choose your next course destination, whether it be Beale’s Treasure at Montvale Park, Moneta Park featuring a mix of open and wooded holes with moderate elevation changes, or Independence Park which features a water challenge.

Evening

Grab food and brew at Beale’s Brewery or Apocalypse Ale Works, which also recently opened a cidery and winery next door to the brewery! On weekends there may be live music. Clam Digger’s in downtown Bedford and Ole Ole Mexican Grill and Cantina are also great spots for food, drinks and live music.

Spend a restful night in one of the area’s cabins, cottages, B&Bs, or campsites.
