Unenthused over the prospect of returning to Buck’s for breakfast, I stopped by the lobby for recommendations. I was pleasantly surprised when Madison’s was mentioned. This is one of the restaurants on the Old Edward’s compound and I didn’t think they allowed non-guests to drop in for meals. Curious to explore the inner confines of luxury, that’s where I headed. More on that in the Old Edwards review, below.
After breakfast was the big moment. Back to the Museum of American Cut & Engraved Glass. Guess it should be obvious from my association with TB that I am a sucker for roadside attractions, and even though I was given a chance to draw a pass yesterday, I returned and George was ready and waiting this time. It was an enjoyed and enlightening tour, reviewed below.
The tour consumed more time than I anticipated (not a bad thing), so it was too close to lunch to peel away from Highlands to seek further waterfalls. The museum was on a side of town I hadn’t explored yesterday, so I hoofed around a bit and eventually muddled upon Meritage, which proved a terrific restaurant and also earns a review.
Should be no surprise I checked out one more fabulous waterfall after lunch. Glenn Falls is a splendid series of three cascades along a pleasant trail and yup, it gets full coverage in another review, down below.
After Glenn, my remaining falls required a bit of a drive so I decided to pass as it gets dark rather early this time of year.
The atmosphere had me completely caught up in the Christmas spirit, so afterthe "BS" I returned to my hotel and plugged away at Christmas cards (this annual catch up with all of my friends is the heart of the season for me) until dinnertime. Highlands is replete with fine eating selections, and I was fortunate to stumble upon an opportunity to finish with an excellent dining experience at Wolfgang’s. Of course it is also reviewed, below.
Reviewing my entry, I see each paragraph ends with a review. Lots of cool stuff in Highlands!
