We make it a 2day trip. We go shopping and have fun. Actually last summer was my first time but my brother (clevestinks) has been there every year with his wife so they would know of more to do. But it is a great time I wouldnt miss it for anything. Even the guys had fun hanging out. I think it is about a 3 hour trip for us, well maybe 1 the way my brother drove. I didnt know my car could go that fast.
