Celebrate Summer at Dorney Park

Those of us that live in the Northeast know that it has been a brutal winter and we would do anything to skip over spring and go right to summer. Sure, we’ve had signs that warmer weather is coming with one “warmish” day here or there, and then we’d be right back to cold temps. The poor flowers don’t know which end is up, and I’m sure all the parents out there are going stir crazy trying to find new indoor activities to keep their kids at bay.

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.

Christmas Trees at Comfort Suites Bethlehem

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.
