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

Hiking Glen Onoko Falls

    Over the last couple of years I’ve become something of a hiking snob.  The hiking here in PA used to be something I would cite as a top reason to visit here, however I guess you tackle a high peak or two, and all of a sudden anything that doesn’t leave your legs

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

Weekend Trip Idea: Jim Thorpe

Whenever I hear about “cool small towns”, Jim Thorpe always comes to mind, even though I’ve only ever driven through or been just outside town (for a rafting trip two years ago).  Budget Traveler agrees as it named the town one of it’s “coolest small towns” in 2009.  Jim Thorpe’s a small town in PA’s Lehigh

The Northern Tier Experience

I’m in NEPA this weekend for a good friends’ wedding.  I’m pumped for the wedding (the reception is in Scranton) but also exicted to be visiting NEPA during one of my favorite times of the year. Since it’s where I’m currently based, a large majority of my posts deal with the southeastern portion of PA, and I realized I have to give
