Great to meet your friends there. Lots to do when craft fairs or entertainment there....or just meet and relax and talk.

This is such a beautiful place. We take our out of town visitors here because it is so relaxing and impressive. Great special events here too. You really should visit at least once...but leave your kids at Grandmas because no one under 21 allowed. Plan a picnic and relax with a wonderful glass of wine in a beautiful setting.

I grew up not too far from Arbor Crest when the original owners (The Riblets) were still living on the grounds. My brother climbed up the rocks to be greeted by two large German Shepherds and the grounds keeper. Mrs. Riblet offered my brother and his friend lemon aide and cookies. Since then, this has always been a favorite place of mine to go to.

Visit Arbor Crest and walk the gardens and see the Cliff House. This place is amazingly beautiful. The free concerts on Sunday evenings are a must do!

I love attending their concerts throughout the summer! They have excellent wines and food available and make the whole experience better than any large performance venue!
