What's Happening on Route 97

Route 97 has something happening in every season. During the summer the days are sunny, the lakes are warm, and you’ll find an abundance of fresh fruit and veggies in season. It’s a great time to get outside, embrace a little adventure, and be curious. We celebrate summer on our mountains, down in the valleys, by the water, and everywhere in between. Join us as we celebrate good food, delicious wine, and the great outdoors. Celebrate summer throughout Route 97.
