On the banks of the Susquehanna River, the town of Perryville is home to a veteran’s hospital and a casino, and attracts history buffs learning more about the town’s role in the American Revolution and Civil War. For the most part, though, when you think of this Cecil County community, you don’t think of resort-style family fun. Until now. Perryville’s reputation as a sleepy pass-through could change in August when Chicago-based resort developer Great Wolf Lodge opens its 20th – and largest – resort. The $250 million project is expected to attract more than a half million visitors a year to the 48-acre site. Most will come from the Mid-Atlantic region and travel less than two hours. It’s more than a three-hour drive from Baltimore to the chain’s closest resorts in Pennsylvania and Virginia.
