If you want a family, girls, or self trip to put down the electronics and enjoy quality time this is the place to visit.

In 1875, settlers came in the area, due to gold being found in the hills. When they arrived they saw wild strawberries across the land and decided to name the city Strawberry. One of the first school houses built in 1885 still stands and can be toured May through mid-October.
If you want to do something as a family during the summer check out the annual Pine-Strawberry Summer Festival. They have music, food, crafts, magnificent scenery and a small town feel you won't get at the larger city festivals.
One adventure many visitors engage is hiking Fossil Creek. This 9 mile journey has creeks, springs and dams throughout your travel. Sit and watch nature at its best or hike through the trails to one of the water falls or springs and have a nice lunch, enjoying the moment and the mountain air.
