Sightseeing

The trails at Giant City are fairly easy, well-maintained, and the rocks are beautiful. Giant City Lodge is historic, rustic and amazing! There are also open play areas and an interpretive center.

Food Scene

I really like their food for a nice night out - dinners around $20-$30. Downstairs is the Grotto - sometimes with a nice jazz combo or other music.

Jennifer is an amazing chef! She grows her own herbs and uses local foods. She combines flavors in creative ways. Sometimes there is music, but it is always an enjoyable home-like atmosphere.

Swedish owners/cooks, good food, authentic atmosphere. They are also a winery. Alto Pass is a cute little village to explore with a nice scenic overlook on skyline drive, west of the village.
