Walkers / Cyclists / Runners, there are mile after mile of well signposted paths, cycle tracts in Gwydir Forest (0.5 miles from the town). Plus footpaths everywhere.
Snowdon - (15 miles) The ultimate walk, take your car to the car park and follow one of three paths. NO flip flops, tee shirts ect, good stout shoes or boots (trainers if you must) take a pack lunch and a drink. It may be sunny at the bottom but allow for cold mist and a rapid drop in temprature. Best not to take the "Ridge Path" this it the one most are killed on !
Petrol Heads - (driving enthusiasts) There are 4 x 4 driving days out (bring your own 4 x 4) go on get you "Asda" off roader muddy or I can take you in my seven seat Shogun. On / Off road buggies (more off than on !) a road legal space frame machine with rear engine, no bodywork, carries two, wet, muddy, cold and numb, in complete discomfort, always with flies on their teeth, and sometimes they even go in a straight line ! What more can anyone want.There is also Quad Bike Riding, Go Kart Track, and Race Track on Anglessey as used by Top Gear and Fith Gear.
Steam Railway Enthusiasts - The famous Blaenu Ffestinog railway, the West Highland railway at Porthmadog, Full size Loco's at Llangollen,a minature railway at Betws - y - Coed, and last but not least the cog railway to the top of Snowdon.
Gardeners - There is the famous National Trust Bodnant Gardens only eight miles away, plus many other N.T. properties in the area. Gwydir Castle Llanrwst has a small laid out garden, and there are tools and a lawnmower in the garage if you have withdrawal symtoms.
Some Local Places To Visit
Betws - Y - Coed (4 miles) is a fine destination a picturesque village with
riverside setting, ancient bridge, wonderfull views but with a full range of Great clothing shops, Hotels, Resturants ect, and a minature railway the children will love it.
Llandudno (15 miles) "Queen of the Welsh Resorts" has everything you need for a full and comprehensive day out ! Too much to list but here are a few. - All high street shops, designer shopping, banks, beaches, tramway / ski lift, good pubs, cafe's, resturants, chip shops ( go to the one next to the NationWide Building Society, sit down resturant), last but not least The Great Orm copper mine, plus much more.

Portmerion (20 miles) "The Prisoner" T.V. Series staring Patrick Mc Goohan was filmed here it is not a film stage, it is a real village. A "must see" day out.
