About 10 minutes drive from the Omni Bedford Springs Resort is this fantastic living history village.

At the entrance to the village is a beautiful 126’ long Claycomb Covered Bridge.  In 1975, it was moved to the Old Bedford Village and placed over the Raystown Branch of the Juniata River.  I love covered bridges!  There are not many left in my home state of Maryland, so whenever I see one I always stop to appreciate the rustic...

The curious and ginormous Coffee Pot located along the Lincoln Highway in Bedford, Pennsylvania, is not an actual coffee shop, but rather a novelty landmark built in the shape of a coffee pot!

The Lincoln Highway was the first east to west coast highway built in the United States.  Once completed, the highway stretched over 3,000 miles between New York City and San Francisco.  The highway became a lucrative part of history - pe...

Can you believe the unseasonably warm weather we have had this winter?!  Just one week ago, we were enjoying 64 degrees in the middle of January!  However, I, for one, am thrilled to have the colder winter temps return just in time for the 16th Annual Ice Fest in downtown Chambersburg, Pennsylvania this weekend!  

The first Ice Fest was held in 2002 with 20 carved ice sculptures.  Over the years, as the event has grown, it...

I just got back from attending the 102nd Annual Pennsylvania Farm Show in Harrisburg, PA and I had the best time!  I love animals and joke all the time that I'd like to have Noah's Arc in my backyard (perhaps not including some of the reptiles and bugs...).  Many of my family and friends say that I like animals more than I like people and I think they may be right.  I mean, who can resist those furry ,sweet, adorable little ba...

Warning - this post is picture heavy.  I wanted to share the magic to keep the memory alive.

If you don't already know, you will soon realize that I love all things Christmas.  The National Christmas Center was on my “to-do” list for years. I finally visited one July a few years ago during a trip to Amish Country and it was a great experience!  I returned home and spread the word to my Christmas-loving friends and co-workers th...
