    I can’t wait to visit Red River! I’m going to squeeze a trip in before the end of the year. I can’t wait to have a brilliant weekend of skiing and live entertainment. 🙂

  10. The Tamarack Resort looks like the best place for a crowded family like us to go. So if we take our nanny with us, while my husband and I are having romantic dates, the kids can have a lot of fun doing all these entertaining activities! 🙂

    • Yeah, there are definitely tons of fun activities in and near that town.
