Decided to take the Ferry over to McGlasson Farms for apple cider and apples. It's is a nice way to spend a fall day - nice breeze from the Ferry, and short ride to the farm after docking.

If you have kids and they have never crossed a river on a small ferry give it a try! Short, cheap and easy to do! What once served as a necessary way to cross remains now a fun way to cross.

We have never waited more than 15 minutes for any trip across either way even at morning rush or quitting time. They have 2 ferries so it looks backed up they add the 2nd one.
