A Bounty of Family-Friendly Fun

Things to Do in the Roundtopolis™ November 2018

It’s November in the Roundtopolis™—and we’ve got a lot to be thankful for including a bounty of family-friendly fun.  There’s a nip in the air. The trees are transitioning to bare, so pockets of sunshine abound. The holiday spirit adds a sparkle to life as surely as the first frost adds a sheen to the landscape. Get out. Get about. Explore the back roads and enjoy all that the season and the Roundtopolis™ has to offer.
