I must admit, you’re looking at probably one of the nicest photos I’ve ever taken. This is the Fulton Steamboat Inn in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Putting aside the lavish interior, the exterior is a replica of Robert Fulton’s Clermont. He lived nearby once upon a time ago. A lake on the grounds and a surrounding moat…

A giant cow hangs out near the entrance of the Turkey Hill Experience in Columbia, Pennsylvania. While it is oriented more towards children, adults will also find themselves having a good time. Buy your tickets in advance. When it comes to kids and all-you-can-eat samples of ice cream (and making your own pint), the crowds…

Travel Guide PA: National Christmas Center to Close in 2018

It’s a museum in Lancaster County dedicated to Christmas. A place where people celebrate the holiday all year-round. I first visited the National Christmas Center back in 2010. I was taken aback by the size of the display and amount of items in the collection. Everything—and I mean everything—related to the holiday throughout history managed…

A double-shot today of a concept motel very fitting of its location. The Red Caboose is located in Strasburg, Pennsylvania. I’ve never stayed here. In the 1990’s, the place was kind of skeevy. My parents checked out a room and were horrified while┬ámy friend Karen and her family literally left after one night when they…

The exterior of Fonthill Castle in Doylestown, Pennsylvania. A lovely tour ensued with the chance to gaze up close at one of the best examples of Gothic architecture around. It was an enjoyable day-trip, save for the fact that you needed to pay for a permit to take pictures inside, and that the tour began…

There is no introduction needed for this creation. It was the shining light after a deplorable meal at Dave & Buster’s in Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania. January 2017.

“Photo of the Day” is back! Inside one of the greenhouses during last year’s Longwood Gardens’ production of “Nightscape”. This photo does not really do the beauty justice. August 2017.

The exterior of the Bongo Road House in Lake Ariel, Pennsylvania. At first glance, it looks like any other bar. But the foods and flavors that awaited inside were out of this world. When you’re done, you step out into the Poconos. A light snow started to fall shortly after. It was perfect. Winter 2016.

Two of the Best French Bakeries Around

When you think about it, Red Bank, NJ and New Hope, PA are very similar. Both are located near a river, both offer posh specialty shops, both have pricey restaurants (ranging from the well-executed to the pretentious). While New Hope may have a bit more history, one thing is for sure, the similarities include fantastic…

Another mug shot. You know you’re in for a good breakfast when this hits your table. I can’t wait to eat here when I’m in Pennsylvania next week. Dienner’s Country Restaurant, Ronks, Pennsylvania.
