Weekends are Fun in Benson
Let the warmth and charm of Benson welcome you as you explore the historic attractions in Benson, home to the Benson Museum of Local History, the Singing Grove Park and a thriving downtown merchant community.
Create a unique weekend experience, including dog-friendly accommodations at the Hampton Inn, with the 3-acre Benson Dog Park right next door where your pups can run off-leash. Treat yourself to tastings and tours at Broadslab Distillery, a yummy waffle breakfast at Cornerstone Cafe, spend the afternoon wine tasting at Gregory Vineyards and shopping along Benson’s Main Street. Rest for a minute then head back to Main Street for dinner at La Piazza (a real-deal Italian treat) followed by an evening of fun at Fainting Goat Brewery.
