Travel: Holy Hill: Basilica and National Shrine

Holy Hill: Basilica and National Shrine

Located less than 10 minutes away from the Lake House is a jewel that attracts half a million visitors each year.  The views are expansive.  There is a huge gift shop.  There is also a rustic cafe serving breakfast and lunch/snacks.

Most importantly, there are elevators from the visitors entrance to both the Basilica and the lower level chapels making it easier for little ones and the elderly to enjoy this facility.  If you are in the area, it is a pleasant way to spend a morning or afternoon.
