A Visit to the Yuengling Brewery

  Think about what things you consider to be inherently Pennsylvanian. For someone born and rasised here, the answers might be biased. For example, I’d always include kielbasa and pierogie on that list, however, there’s plenty of people outside of my small corner of Northeast PA who don’t know what those foods are, and I

A Messy Snowshoe Up Mount Tammany with a Clean Finish at Barley Creek Brewing Company

Every once in a while I really overestimate how good of shape I’m in. Now to give myself credit, I probably am in the best shape I’ve been in for a long time-that being said, I’ve learned that I am not well equipped to snowshoe up a mountain in over 3 feet of snow. I

Winter Fun in the Laurel Highlands

Ever since visiting Ohiopyle State Park on a whim this summer, I’ve been a fan of the Laurel Highlands and want to start visiting more often. I enjoy this part of PA that’s still fairly undeveloped, picturesque, yet still highly accessible and very organized for the visiting tourist (the trails are all well kept, everything

10 Places To VIsit in Pennsylvania that Aren’t Pittsburgh and Philadelphia

The other day, while perusing a whole lot of travel blogs and websites to come up with post ideas, I noticed (or I should say, re-noticed) that when Pennsylvania in concerned, the large majority of writers break up the state into three parts: Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and “The Amish.”  Now, I’m not hear to disagree with

Celebrate Pennsyvlania Wine Month

Part of this whole being unemployed thing (which  I have to consistently remind myself is by choice) that I quite like is that I could start my day out with a workout, effectively getting it out-of-the-way and making me feel wide awake from the get-go. This was always something I wanted to do in theory

Weekend Trip Idea: York PA

I haven’t done a “Weekend Trip Idea” in a while, mostly because I’ve just been super busy this summer with some major life upheavals, but I think it’s time to revive these. “Weekend Trip Ideas,” for those just joining us (which is probably most of you), is exactly what it sounds like: an idea for

Things I Wished I Did While I Lived in Central PA (aka reasons to visit)

As highlighted in my last post, I’m somewhat unceremoniously moving from Lancaster, PA, where I’ve lived and worked for the past five years, back to the little known town of Browndale, PA (which is right next to Forest City, which is just north of Carbondale, which is close to Scranton, if you need a point

Soccer in PA

I’m sitting here in my parents living room in good old Upper Browndale Pennsylvania. It’s 9AM (it’s also Thursday, June 26th-rest assured I won’t get this published till sometime in July). I’m making eggs and drinking a Guinness  and trying to figure out what red, white and blue outfit I should be wearing to Scranton to watch the

100 Things to do in Pennsyvlania (Part II)

Last year around this time I decided to “celebrate” my 100th blog post by coming up with a list of “100 Things to do in Pennsylvania.” It ended up being much easier than I anticipated, which is good considering that one of my main purposes of my site is to celebrate and explore all the things do within our own
