 Picturesque Dining

Participate in a truly unique experience of dining on a covered bridge, complete with entertainment and a setting that celebrates a slower era. It’s not every day that you get to create treasured memories with a delicious dinner under the canopy of an historic red bridge amidst the pastoral scenery of Union County.

Beautiful Bounty

When visitors see the nostalgic 1954 Chevy truck at the entrance of Mitchell’s Berries, they are reminded of a simpler time when friends and neighbors shared the bounty of the growing season. It speaks to the spirit of hospitality and the endearing homey style of the Mitchell family that has been passed down for 200+ years. With more than 23,00 berry plants, the harvests and memories are plentiful. Groups enjoy a variety of experiences from u-pick tours and berry-themed meals to painting classes and wine pairing events.

There’s truth in the Hans Christian Anderson quote, “Just living is not enough… one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower,” – the only exception is that there’s nothing little about the family-owned Leo Berbee Bulb Co. For more than 47 years the Berbee family has been sharing the beauty of their trade by cultivating and distributing millions of bulbs across the U.S. and beyond. Among their esteemed customer list is Columbus Zoo, U.S. Botanic Garden, SeaWorld, The Pentagon, and the National Parks Service! Learn, discover, and take home a pack of inspiration for your own garden.

Homerun Innovation

Fueled by the Power of Dreams, Honda continues to rank as the world’s most innovative mobility company. The Honda Heritage Center™ highlights the company’s successes in North America over the last half century with an array of historical, current and future products – each with its own story. Honda Manufacturing of North America, Inc., made its home in Union County in 1979 and continues to inspire today through this state-of-the-art facility.

See how six pounds of wood is transformed into a baseball bat, as you learn the history of Phoenix Bats (hint: they blame it on a bunch of guys from the 1800s). Tour the factory and see first-hand the art of crafting a great bat. Visitors leave ready to hit a home run with their own mini bat souvenir in-hand.
