Deep Creek Christmas Shopping Guide
Happy December! And Happy Snow Day! Garrett County Schools let out two hours early because of the snow and after a couple of inches yesterday, we're waiting for a few more between now and tomorrow morning. All this snow plus all the holiday decor, events and SHOPPING opportunities kicks the Christmas cheer up an extra notch, don't you think?
If you're here in Garrett County living as a resident or if you're coming to town to visit this month, I hope you'll find this guide helpful when out shopping around. I decided to start compiling this list a couple of weeks ago and was a little surprised at how much shopping I found for Deep Creek! Let's get started. 🙂
