A Quick Trip to Cleveland

I never thought I’d be saying that I really want to plan a future trip to Cleveland, but, here we are. I didn’t just pick Cleveland randomly. I was there this weekend for a cousin’s wedding, literally, for almost exactly 25 hours. It was a quick trip, leaving early Saturday morning, and heading out at

A Fall Drive

I approach travel and writing in the same manner. I’m planned. I’m measured. I map, and I plot things out. 9 out of 10 times, this comes in handy when I’m doing trips of both the day, and the longer variety. There are times though, that I feel it becomes, well, maybe stifling is a

Stroudsburg, PA

I’ve been to Stroudsburg PA plenty of times over the years.  I had few good friends who went to ESU, and have very fond memories of attending a few parties at my one buddy’s apartment above the Sherman Theater on main street.  I’ve driven through Stroudsburg more than I’ve actually been in town, especially when

Lancaster City is Cool

I’m going to make the bold statement that at the moment, Lancaster is 100% the coolest city in Pennsylvania…that no one’s ever heard of. Hear me out.  Whenever I tell people I used to live in Lancaster, the most common reaction still is to ask if I lived by the Amish. Most people are surprised

A Small Taste of Bethlehem

It took great restraint to not title this post, “Oh Little Town of Bethlehem,” and I’m proud of myself for showing that restraint. So, this past weekend, I spent just a little bit of time in Bethlehem, PA, which, if you aren’t familiar, is located in the Lehigh Valley just off both 22, and 78,

A Day at Bethel Woods, the Original Woodstock

  You’d think that unemployment might be relaxing, filled with days of daytime television, countless hours on Youtube, and a lot of late nights. Quite the contrary,at least for me. Finding a job is pretty much a full-time job, with plenty of work done after the 9-5 confines of a normal work day, and no

Weekend Trip Idea: Doylestown PA

Do you have any words or phrases you inexplicably hate for no real reason (or for maybe, a real stupid reason).  Maybe it’s because I’m an English major and so nerd out over word choices, but I probably have a more extensive list than any human should. A small sampling of that includes the phrase,

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

Fall Weekend Trip Idea: ATV’s and Craft Brews in NEPA

I was doing a little bit of a mini northern tier tour last weekend with my dad. He got a mid-life crisis BMW convertible so we took it up north to the Orson Inn and Lakewood Lodge where we got some wings. We were on the same barhopping schedule as a group of guys ATVing

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
