The Most Amazing Airbnb in Pennsylvania!

Do you want to get away, (like away away), so away that you have no wifi, no cell service, a burning campfire, a private creek right outside your bedroom window, homemade maple syrup, and a field filled with amish children laughing and playing in the flowers right next door? This is the place to be. We wanted to go somewhere different...

Discover Kilgore Falls in Maryland

Sometimes trips just come out of nowhere and that is how our trip to Kilgore Falls in Maryland happened. We ended up having to travel from Pittsburgh down to Washington, DC and figured lets stop and go on an adventure along the way. After doing some research Kilgore Falls (sometimes called Falling Branch Falls) seemed to be ranked...

Spend All Day at Swallow Falls State Park!

After completing my meetings, we...

Since it was already getting pretty cold we decided to pick a place that was relatively close, this place ended up being Freedom Falls, which is about an hour and a half away from Pittsburgh in Kennerdell, PA. When you get on...
