If you're wanting a local place to practice photography, Prater's Mill in autumn is nice for the way the colors reflect off of the water.

This is a great historical location to visit. You can get up close and personal with the history of grain milling and cotton processing. And if you come during the mill on the 2nd weekend in October. You can enjoy great food, arts and crafts, and entertainment.

My family has had gatherings here since I was a little girl. It's beautiful, peaceful and a wonderful place to have a family picnic or take the kids fishing. There's a covered pavillion with plenty of seating. During the fall, they have the Prater Mill Festival with lots of crafts, food, music, etc.
