The Abel Opera House, Sigal Bridal Gallery, and the Sigal Museum all have one very big thing in common: their location. The Abel Opera House and Sigal Bridal Gallery evolved to what is now the historic downtown Easton’s Sigal Museum. I say “evolved” as the museum still pays homage to these previous tenants in many ways through their exhibits. Opening in the summer of 2010, the Sigal Museum is a gem in the historic downtown, flying a bright red banner reading “History Here” on its exterior. The museum is a mere block from the Easton Farmers’ Market, and a must-see if you are in the area! There is something in this museum for everyone – adults and children alike.

The sign says it all.

Crayola Experience

Last week, Lehigh Valley hosted, among other things, the Pennsylvania Bus and Greater New Jersey Motorcoach Association’s annual meeting. This is a really fun bunch of group tour leaders and representatives from all over the east coast. When Marc Kaminetsky, our National Sales Manager who set this all up asked for help with the familiarization or “Fam-tours” I gladly volunteered!

Monday afternoon I headed over to the Sands Hotel to meet my group. We loaded onto a gorgeous Trans-Bridge motorcoach and headed for Martin Guitar in Nazareth.
