Fairmont's historic downtown business district is a feast for your senses and especially for your sweet tooth. Serving the best handmade desserts in town, Noteworthy Sweets is a beloved cafe and bakery that offers some truly gourmet eats. You can stop in for lunch and see what looks tempting on the fresh, weekly menu, or you can grab a cup of coffee and a sweet baked treat (Boston cream pie and "chocolate bomb" truffles are local favorites) and people-watch on a weekend afternoon. If you do decide to sit down for dinner, be sure to make a reservation. Tables fill up quickly here.
While a traditional weekend game of catch is one way to get outside, Fairmont has something exciting to whet your sporting appetite. Located next to Morris Park is the Seth Burton Memorial Disc Golf Course, one of the unique recreational activities offered in the town. The objective is to throw a Frisbee at a target basket in the distance, and whoever has made the fewest throws at the end is the winner. This is a perfect way to spend an afternoon laughing with your friends or kids. If you are more the bird-watching type, head to Morris Park and explore the 112 acres of trails.
Healthful and Natural
Whether you have specific dietary needs or are looking to improve your overall well-being, Fairmont's Health Naturally shop is a must-see. It is brimming with a vast array of vitamins, natural and organic body care products, gluten-free foods, hypoallergenic makeup, and more, so you can come in with an idea about how you want to promote your health and the owner, a certified herbalist, will help you figure out exactly what you need to embark down your path to wellness. Beware, though; locals report that the lavender aroma of the store can become addictive, so you might find yourself returning sooner than you had planned.
