One of the great events that people come from all over to enjoy is the Koroneburg Old World Renaissance Festival. The only fair hosted in a permanent facility, this event attracts families who eagerly plan and purchase costumes in anticipation for its arrival. Kids love the celebration as much as the adults who get to play the parts of historic figures, or make up their own. For those who've never attended a Renaissance faire, this is one of the best. Foods, shows, dancing, music, games and vendor artisans with quality products all are featured at the event. 

 

Where to stay: It's OK to rough it for the festival event, or for a road trip, but we like creature comforts and find them at Ayres Inn Corona East, where the hotel offers European, Old World charm in a nice atmosphere. Families may want to consider staying at the Residence Inn by Marriott where you can get a two-room suite to accommodate the entire clan.
