Fish pedicure.

Forest Jungle And Fish Pedicure

Kids said it was fun. Adults had a good time, too. About 1.5 Mile round trip -- hard gravel trail, easy to walk. Cheap entry $15. My first pedicure and it was by fish.

Fish pedicure.

Crane Point Hammock

The "fish pedicure" is wild! It's about a half-mile hike to get there, but definitely worth it. Put your feet in the pond, and let the fish nibble. 15 seconds was as long as I could stand it. Great place for the pups to run, even in the bird area!

Minnows. A harmless bunch of piranha wannabes.
