Treat yourself to a relaxing getaway at the Inn at Birch Wilds.

Nestled in the scenic Blue Mountains is the town of Lehighton where the Inn at Birch Wilds welcomes you. After four years of planning and perfecting their cozy getaway destination, innkeepers Cheryl and Rhonda (sisters and Bethlehem natives) opened their doors in early October 2016.

Lehigh Valley Views

This week, I celebrated my four-year anniversary of working here at Discover Lehigh Valley. Though I’m not a native of the region (I went to Muhlenberg College and stuck around post-grad), I’ve been lucky to call Lehigh Valley home for almost nine years. In my four years at DLV, I’ve gotten to know the region well – from festivals and events, to local wineries, plenty of restaurants, and so much more.

Pack a picnic lunch & explore Lehigh Valley.

Pack a picnic lunch, a comfortable blanket, some sunglasses and take advantage of the many parks and cozy spots as the setting for your next picnic. The following locations call for some walking shoes as you won’t want to miss out on the nearby trails and attractions.

Allentown Rose Gardens

Allentown has over 25 parks, trails, and green spaces in their inventory. One of my favorites would have to be the Allentown Rose Gardens, especially when the flowers are in peak bloom in June. Pick a bench, sit in one of the gazebos or set up a blanket on the grass. Every spot has an incredible view whether it is of the weeping willow trees or overlooking a pond filled with wandering water lillies.  My puppy, Toby, is a big fan of the roses and taking long walks around the park.

In the morning the fog blankets the crumbling concrete. In the afternoon, the sun gleams off of the gemstones. The light breeze ruffles the aluminum cans creating a soft whisper. This concrete playground of recycled materials is right in the Christmas City. This is the Lehigh Millennium Folk Arch and Art Enclave (“Enclave”).
