  • Very nice place for a leisurely day trip!! Several shops to explore with an excellent variety of merchandise, fantastic ice cream counter (😁) which also has many food items available to purchase, adequate close parking, and pleasant, cozy, village atmosphere for leisurely walking and shopping. Warehouse restaurant a good place for lunch or dinner. AND particularly nice are the folks/store owners in the shops! Without a doubt, they are some of the nicest and most friendly people my husband and I have ever met!!! So down to earth, welcoming, friendly - you felt like you had known them for years! 😊 Definitely a place where everyone should visit!!
  • Lovely little historical village, with tours available through some of the historical buildings, and rides on a canal boat, so you can get a feeling of what life was like here in the early 1800's. Roscoe Village also has many quaint little shops (including a candy store with every kind of candy you can think of, and some you haven't!) and a truly marvelous museum. All the shop proprietors are friendly, and some of the shops set out water bowls for visiting pets. Also, don't forget to pick up a jar or two (or three or four) of apple butter!
  • Took our granddaughter she loved it. She did tin work and made candles. She enjoyed going through the old school house, doctors home and office, printing shop, and blacksmith. We all enjoyed lunch there .
  • Not really worth the money for the historic life tour. There are only a few buildings that have history "experts" and a couple of these were closed. Some "experts" had limited knowledge of the time period. Everyone was friendly and easy to talk to.
  • Old restored buildings on a quiet street. Shops and a few restaurants. Not much for kids to do. Plenty of free parking.
