Oh ya, the outlets along Route 16 can be considered a tourist trap as well. It's certainly a pain to drive thru in stop & go traffic all the way thru town!
Unique Suggestions: Park and walk from store to store along the way. Stop & eat while your at it, LOL.
It basicly is a nice house with a mountain view, but not worth the $14 to go up and see it.
Unique Suggestions: there is a pond with giant rainbow trout you can feed and it is a crack up to watch them jump out of the water fighting for food.
Fun Alternatives: Don't bother paying the full admission to go tot the top, but it is only like $3 to go up the road and see the whole lakes region.
