Visit North Wales
What would you like from your holiday to North Wales?
Scenery of course..
It is always nice to have something to look at as you drive around or walk to have an evening meal and a drink. However, in North Wales you may well find yourself staring. Whether you are in the mountains, by a lake in the forests or one of the many beaches the view is not bad and it changes as well. So make sure you travel in pairs for prolonged periods of staring can leave you exposed; to public ridicule if nothing else.
Something to do is handy.
Doing things on holiday is good, it uses up the kids energy and gives you something to tell the folks at home. But what to do in North Wales? How would these suite? Climbing one of the 15 Welsh peaks over 3000 foot, or all of them? Too tiring. Then try one of the hundreds of way marked gentler walks of all types through out North Wales. Or how about the Snowdon Mountain Railway and ride to the top of Snowdon? White water rafting? Paintballing? High ropes climbing? Rock climbing? Sea Fishing? Course Fishing? Game Fishing? Mountain Biking? Cycling? Horse Riding? Diving? Gliding? Hang Gliding? Orienteering? Canoeing? Water Skiing? Windsurfing? Something a little gentler? How about Photography or maybe a bit of Painting? Of course in the run up to the Ryder Cup in Wales 2010 you may want to try out the some of the28 North Wales golf courses. There are Activities in North Wales to suit most people.

A bit History?
Wales is an old country with an old language (one of the oldest in Europe) It is not only the Castles; Harlech, Conwy, Beaumaris, Caernarfon, I could go on because North Wales has more Castles per mile than any other country in the world that still bear witness to the turbulent history of North Wales.
Add to these the historic houses, stately homes and gardens such as Plas Newydd, Erddig Hall, Bodnant Gardens, Aberconwy House, with history in every stone, not forgetting the quirky Portmeirion. However, it is often the small things that you find in every town and village, on every street that makes you aware of how little North Wales has changed over the years.
