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

Weekly Check-In: SIC Memories, and Why Coldplay Made Me Cry

I never understood the massive vitriol people have for Coldplay. See here, or here, or here for examples.  I find them almost completely neutral music-wise, decent elevator music that I’d almost never seek out myself, but that I might sing along with if it’s on, and certainly wouldn’t scoff at.  I even really like their

Day Trips from Philly

Occasionally I forget that this is a Pennsylvania-centric blog. I usually catch myself when something like 8 posts in a row aren’t celebrating the Keystone State in any way. Now, in my own defense, when I created this very Pennsylvania-centric blog, I purported to not only feature my home state, but easy trips to take

Weekly Check-In: The Wawa/Sheetz Debate

Thrillist just published a great article the other day entitled “Wawa vs. Sheetz: Behind the Most Heated Food Rivalry in the Country,”  that I knew I was going to automatically love, and subsequently write about, because this is about as Pennsylvanian an issue as they come, and this is a subject I’ve discussed often. While I

Underrated Weekend Places and Things

You know what’s a great word to describe our wonderful Keystone State? Underrated.  You never see Pennsylvania topping any “best of” or “must see” lists, but it’s never at the bottom either. We have great regional food, great food scenes, amazing beer, phenomenal hiking, a great central locale, and two of the most livable (ie:

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

A Whirlwind Tour of the Jersey Shore

I spent this past weekend in NYC (or more accurately, Jersey City, with one night out in NYC) which didn’t give me a lot to write about (which is completely fine).  I mean, I had a great time (and might possibly still be hungover-4am last calls are not your friend at age 28) but it was much more

Planning a Solid Group Weekend Trip

I legitimately enjoy planning vacations and weekend trips (which is partially how this blog got started). I like researching different places to go and things to do. I enjoy putting together hypothetical itineraries and bothering my friends with over-wordy Facebook messages describing said hypothetical itineraries. I like being in charge and like organizing things (some might use the

Down the Shore Everything’s Alright: A Day in Sea Isle City

In Defense of the Jersey Shore I’m still in severe recovery mode from my annual trip to Sea Isle City, New Jersey as I type this.  I have a slight Irish tan (read: semi severe burn) on my shoulders, no voice, a ringing in ears that will not stop, severe dehydration (from both sun and
