|Scenic Drives and Recommended Activities:||Though Andes, then Delhi, Stamford and back!|
Highlights: Cabin Hill road offers some of the best mountain views on your right as you drive towards the center of Andes. If you are interested in Bird Houses, then stop at the Blue Bird House builders' country store. He sells great birdhouses for less then $10. Stop in to say hello, and perhaps purchase these handmade beauties (on rt. 28 towards Delhi after Glen Burnie Road)). If you are lucky, you'll see some nestlings' in bird houses right there on the premises. You can also purchase wood chairs, small benches as well. Another favorite just a few more miles up rt. 28 north approaching Delhi is the DELHI OUTDOOR EDUCATION CENTER. If you have time, you should walk the trails. Beautifully maintained and awesome wildflowers. Excellent for Bird Watching too! They also have a labyrinth and GREAT Walking Trails
