Pennsylvania

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...

Buttermilk Falls Natural Area

There are many different waterfalls in Pennsylvania called Buttermilk Falls, but the one we are talking about today is quite special as the land was once owned by Fred McFeely, the grandfather of Fred Rogers, who of course we know as Mister Rogers. As a child he spent time here at his grandfathers cottage. Getting to the Buttermilk Falls...

Visiting Freedom Falls

With the cold weather setting in Kayla and I definitely needed one more adventure before the holidays and winter. 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...

It was also to find one of the most beautiful places we have gone together. Even...

Wintergreen Gorge

Presque Isle & Wintergreen Gorge (Erie, PA)

McConnells Mill State Park

Some people say, “Sometimes the best things are right in front of you, it just takes some time to see them”. We are living extremely close to one of the most beautiful natural waterfalls and we didn’t even know it. This blog is about McConnells Mill State Park, which is in Portersville, Pennsylvania. This was a great day trip due...

Rimrock Overlook

Bob and I always try and make the most of each trip we take. The same day as Kinzua we decided to adventure off to a place called Rimrock. One thing I have learned over the years is to always take the time to do the things that make you the happiest. Rimrock was only 40 minutes away from Kinzua State Park and we couldn’t pass up the...
