Playing tourist in your own backyard


My hubby and I recently got to be tourists in our own "backyard."  If you have never done it, I strongly suggest you do it soon. Our county is one of eight or so, that participate in "secret tours."  You pay a small fee to get your booklet and goodie bag. Then you can visit any or all of those places. Most have giveaways or goodies for you, whether it is food samples or a little gift.  Check them out online at Best Kept Secret.


This hot sauce was found at a place called Kitchen Kettle Village.  Since my husband goes by Pappy we thought this was pretty funny since he likes his hot sauce.  Kitchen Kettle has many things to do a lot of cute shops, carriage rides, and lots of good food.


I am very outnumbered when it comes to golfing. My husband both daughters both son-in-law's and even now a two-year-old granddaughter all like to golf. We found this sign at a store in Ephrata,PA at a place called Sheldon's.  They have the neatest shop. You can find jewelry, scarves, garden stuff, garden flags and a lot of pictures.






This amazing looking burger came from a place called Outback Grille.  My hubby and I got this burger and ended up splitting it inhale because it was so large. We then each got a small ice cream, and our bill was only around $20.  We were able to do all of this stuff on good Friday as my husband had off that day. I don't even have pictures from all the places we actually went to.




This cute little place is called Stoudtburg Village in Adamstown, Pennsylvania.  We were able to go with a few friends. This place has lots of antiques, lots of cute shops. You can also rent some of the town houses that are in the top floors of these adorable buildings. We were here on Saturday and I expect it would be a lot busier in the summer. I would definitely go back to visit this place.


 

For Easter Sunday we went to Lewes, Delaware to visit family. We also got to go to the beach but only for just a short time because it was so cold.  We will be play tourist a lot more because we had we had so much fun!
