The Rising Sun water front is terrific, with people walking the paved trail along the river, and relaxing at the picnic tables. And they had a very nice Veterans Park also. I noticed this hotel, The Empire House, and that second floor balcony called to me. I could see myself sitting up there drinking whiskey all night. I was tempted. It had been a long day and I was ready to stop. And here was this historic hotel on the water. I considered it for a long time, but it seemed too easy and I wanted to camp anyway, so I moved on.
