Exploring Sloan Lake & Environs
Saturday, February 22, 2020 | 10:00AM — 3:00PM
Bus Tour = Easy
Some tales from history sound just too implausible to be real. Is the story of the creation of Sloan Lake one of those, or is this a believe-it-or-not situation? Let’s explore the area around Sloan Lake together to see if we may dredge up the truth from its watery depths. With two cities along its shores, this lakeside is an energetic and growing part of the metropolitan area. With changes on all sides, there's history lost and history being made—all of it ready to explore. Just to make sure you have the energy for it all, we’ll cliff-dive into dining history at nearby Casa Bonita restaurant, once part of a national chain and now the sole survivor. Though we won’t be riding any dragon boats, our day around Sloan Lake will be a roaring-good time! Includes bus transportation and a group lunch.
