Pedway Walk!
Save the date for our first Pedway walk of the season. We’ll start with coffee and pastries at Lakeshore Sport & Fitness and the wind our way around the Pedway, visiting hotels, subterranean bars, restaurants and snack shops. This walk will be full of historical twists and turns and even a mystery or two. Don’t miss it!
