Mary Ann and I met up at my house and headed out 78 towards Hamburg, and then down to Gowanda. In Gowanda we stopped for a geocache hidden behind the historic theatre on Main Street and then we got on Route 62 heading south towards Randolph. Our second stop was in _________________ which seems kind of like a semi ghost town. A geocache is hidden in a garden next to this old building which is being restored.
At the above location, I saw a Mom with two children out walking and I asked her if there was a nearby park with picnic tables. She said to keep going south on 62 until arriving at RACERS RESTAURANT. So we did, stopping along the way to geocache. RACERS is a nice diner and a bait shop
They also have a very nice playground and a few picnic tables, where we ate our lunch before continuing towards Randolph on the Amish Trail. We spent the bulk of the afternoon geocaching and stopping at Amish shops. Malinda's Candies was especially nice, another shop sold quilts and more in an Amish home and finally we found a very small shop selling baked goods.
Late afternoon we arrived in Randolph and quickly found our lodging THE INN AT ONE BANK STREET.
This old building was a fire station in its former life. Our hostess (Tonia) met us outside and helped us get our stuff inside and registered us. Our room was on the first floor and was just gorgeous, and sparkingly clean! I would definitely stay there again! We had time to find a geocache (PEACHES AND CREAM at a nice farmstand) before supper at a pizzeria on Main Street.
I had the soup, salad and pizza buffet for eight dollars. Then we found our last geocache of the day at a spa across the street from the restaurant. It was an EIGHT GEOCACHE DAY!!!!! So far, Mary Ann and I are thoroughly enjoying the Amish area of Conewango Valley and New Yorks Amish Geotrail. The beds in the inn were super comfortable!
