"Great Destination!"

"Roscoe Village restored our faith in canal towns. They offer a guided living history tour, we walked the main street and admired the historic houses, shopped at the interesting shops, took a canal boat ride and ate at the Warehouse restaurant - twice. If you are looking for a picture perfect canal town - it doesn't get much better than Roscoe Village. Date of Visit: Wed. 6/26/2019"
