    An Unsolicited Kudo about Park, Dine & Ride:

     

    "Everyone who complains about getting out of Bethel Woods after a concert should take heed! Worth every penny! We left from Dutch's Tavern in Rock Hill where we first had a very good burger and fries. The bus pulled up and got us to Bethel Woods in plenty of time for the concert. Gary, the owner of the company, was there personally to make sure that everyone who bought a ticket was on the bus and satisfied with the service. Getting out after the concert was a breeze. In any case, a fantastic and reasonably priced option when attending a concert at Bethel Woods. I am already booking my next trip! - Terri, Wallkill, New York
