The start of September means back to school, closing up the pool, and phasing out those shorts and flip flops. It may not feel quite like it yet, but fall is on its way!

I can’t hide the fact that I’m a sucker for all things autumn. Fall festivals, corn mazes, apple picking, pumpkin everything- count me in! It may be a little early for some of these things, but September still has a ton of great events on the horizon.

Summer Family Fun

There isn’t much time left to enjoy summer in Lehigh Valley, as Labor Day is just around the corner. However, for as much excitement as three day weekends are for the family, Labor Day pretty much ends family fun, because the kids are going back to school.

First and foremost, Dorney Park and Wildwater Kingdom as two parks in one, ends on Labor Day, as that is the end of Wildwater Kingdom’s season. Although you will still be able to get your thrills at the Park, your water slide fever will have to wait until next year. Wildwater Kingdom isn’t the only water fun, Dutch Springs Aqua Park and the Sky Challenge are also coming to the end of their season.

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.
