The Forks is always a great place to take visitors. Local crafts, shops and a variety of ethnic foods. The lookout tower over looking the river and learning the history.

The forks is my happy place. My apartment overlooks the river but when I go down to the water I feel at peace. The shops are cute and unique to the city.

The Forks in winter is amazing. The skating trails are amazing. The lights are beautiful. We enjoyed all of our visits this winter. A great combination of things to do indoors and outdoors!

If you haven’t been to the forks in a few years. I recommend going the commons area with beer and wine is unreal. It is hard to get seats as it is always busy.
