Snowboarding at Blue Mountain

Winter is upon us in the Northeast and with that, so is the cold weather. Now, that doesn’t necessarily mean snow is falling from the skies here every day in Pennsylvania, but there is plenty of man-made snow at the two ski areas that border Lehigh Valley.

I am all too familiar with the mountains in our region. My son, now 21, is a snowboard enthusiast, it is a huge part of his life. When he was younger, I made the trek to the mountains every single day of the week for every winter season. He started out going for pleasure, and actually ended up working there during the winter, and still does today. He would have lived outside if I let him. Not me. You’d find me in the lodges, next to the fireplaces, with hot chocolate, a good book, or a laptop.

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree. Oh 17 Christmas Trees? That is exactly what you’ll find in the lobby of the Comfort Suites in Bethlehem, Pa. That’s right. The South Bethlehem Historical Society takes control of the hotel’s lobby each year since 1992 and decorates 17 trees, each done as authentic as possible, from different countries.

It is absolutely stunning to see the different styles and items that are used around the world. Each tree has a poster that sits in front of it, describing what Christmas traditions are like in each country. There is also a map for those of us that are geographically challenged.

Yianni's Taverna

Have you ever been to the Mediterranean?

While I can only dream of traveling there one day, I actually felt like I was transformed there recently without stepping foot out of Lehigh Valley … in “good old” Pennsylvania.

Just sit back, close your eyes, and imagine the thought of sitting amongst royal blue chairs and tables topped with crisp blue and white linens. Think large white columns and flowing sheer drapes hung from the ceiling.

Historic Weaversville Inn

What’s that you say? You’ve never been to Weaversville Inn? Well, there’s no better time to give it a try than tonight. It’s a special week for them, and they’ve got great things lined up.

The Weaversville Inn was built around 1835. Mr. Weaver bought the property which dated back to the 1700s and was at one point home to Hay’s Tavern. It is believed that Ben Franklin stayed at the tavern often on his trips through the area. The land used was part of the Craig Settlement which was the first English speaking settlement in Pennsylvania.

This is the Gym you're looking for...

I joined a gym. Not just any gym though. I didn’t want one of those “I pick things up, and put things down” kinda places. I also didn’t want a meat market-type gym. And, I definitely didn’t want a gym where I couldn’t get onto any of the equipment.

My requirements were that it had to be some place clean, safe and not crowded. I wanted a gym with state-of-the-art equipment. I also wanted the ability to take classes, and to not have to pay extra for those classes.
