What You'll Get
Like any good family activity, fishing ends up in a feast, involves competition with unpredictable wildlife, and requires digging in the dirt for worms. Solidify your family unit with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a value pass and two fishing pole rentals for The Lilly Pad Village in Blue Ridge (a $58.73 value including tax). The value pass includes a two-gallon gem-mining bucket, two-hours of fishing for two, and a miniature golf game for two ($48.89 value) plus two pole rentals ($3 value per rental).
Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains, near the nucleus of the Aska Adventure Area, lies The Lilly Pad Village, a multi-activity haven for fresh-air-fiending families. Gem-miners receive buckets of dirt and a sieve, and take them to the flume, where the water washes the dirt away to reveal the bejeweled surprises inside, which could be anything from an emerald to quartz to a genuine Krabby Patty. The nine-hole mini golf course was built to fit the mountain setting, without removing a single tree. Obstacles like sand pits, log runs, and bridges challenge children and adults alike, with the current score leader being an eleven-year-old boy, followed closely by his Toy Fox Terrier. Families bond over fishing in the Lilly Pad Village's half-acre pond, where they have the chance to catch and release catfish and small mouth bass. An extra charge ($3.50) allows the parents of the famished fisher to take each treasure home so they can mount it over their offspring's desk and teach it to sing times tables.
Brady-like broods need not fear, for they can add salty siblings to their mini golf games for $3.50 each or fishing factions for $5.00 each, including pole rental. Hiking trails help the hyperactive burn off excess energy, while pooped out parents can recover in the main house, which offers refreshments, wi-fi access and air conditioning.
