Antique shopping and art galleries abound in Bethany. Take a spin around Rink Gallery — a skating rink turned antique mall — before visiting the Bethany Antique Mall, Apple Tree Antique Gallery and Norma Jean’s Jewelry & Antiques. When you’re ready for some fun in the sun, rent a stand-up paddleboard from Flat Tide and get out on the water at Lake Overholser. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, take your pick from Bethany’s diverse restaurants, which range from pizza at Papa Angelo’s Pizzeria to savory smoked meat at Swadley’s Bar-B-Q.
