This is a very special event just in time for Valentines Day. Five course dinner, five different wines. All delicious and well paired. The explanation by the owner Joseph made it thoroughly entertaining. Foods from soup to cheeses to salads to files mignon to dessert - all perfect!

Ringing Rocks County Park

Reviewed By PattyMcC7 - Landisville, Pennsylvania

Fabulous and unique! I grew up in Bucks County buy never visited here until this week as a Medicare card-carrying grandma! Our grandsons 9 and 11 LOVED it! There's a field of boulders that's impressive itself, but the fun part is lots of the rocks make a bell sound when hit with a hammer. There's a side trip hike to a small waterfall too. Follow the white slash marks on trees for the trail to the falls. It's sort of counter-intuitive because you'll be walking downhill. We went at a good time for the falls. It rained on Monday, but Wednesday the rocks on the trail down were mostly dried off. Enough previous rain so the falls weren't dry, but NOT a wet trail. I would not recommend the trail if it's wet and slippery. There is a port-a-potty, and I use them frequently, but this was one of the grossest I've ever encountered. Plan ahead and only use in dire emergency.

Linden Hill has a wonderful mix of plants and stones, but that is only the beginning! Come and enjoy the farmers' market and the artisan crafted products. On summer Fridays, they will even grill your fresh food for you. I love this place. Someday, I will have them design a garden for me.

Beautiful park and scenery. We wanted to go kayaking however the lake was too large in my opinion. We did however enjoy just walking around and enjoying the views.

Ralph Stover State Park

Reviewed By Abernathy15 - New Canaan, Connecticut

The valley, in which this park is set, is amazingly beautiful. A crystal-clear creek runs through it--great for children & pups to cool off. The picnic area is very large & nwell-maintained. Bathrooms are reasonably clean. The two, nearby covered bridges are stunning as well.

BUT...the hiking trails are unmarked and there are no available trail maps. Furthermore,
State of PA road signage for getting here is non-existent. Unless you're a local, expect to waste a lot of road time & gas wandering around, looking for this place.

Skydive Jersey

Skydive Jersey is located in Pittstown, NJ at the historic Alexandria Air Field and serves the New Jersey, New York, and Philadelphia areas. We specialize in tandem skydiving, meaning that each student is strapped to an experienced instructor for the duration of the jump. This is especially comforting for first-time jumpers as it minimizes the student's responsibility, allowing them to relax and simply enjoy the experience. Come see the beautiful NJ countryside from a true bird's eye view and experience the thrill of a lifetime at Skydive Jersey!

Went skydiving here for the first time (I am 71 and jumped with my 28 yr old son.) Wonderful and fun experience. I'm glad I did this finally! Muffy, my instructor, was great, very professional and he took great video and pictures. Efficient organization, well kept grounds, great set-up. We were cancelled a few times for weather and one should plan on staying 2-3 hours depending on time of year, weather, number of people jumping before you. Waiting area is clean and comfortable. Minor point: We were very exhilerated after the jump and both signed up for 2nd jump at a discounted price with a $25 deposit. On reflection, I decided not to jump again but owner would not apply $25 to my son's account nor refund it.

Bobolink Dairy & Bakehouse

Reviewed By jmh414 - Collingswood, New Jersey

Stopped by the shop/store on the way home from a trip to north Jersey. Sampled their cheeses at an event at Grounds For Sculpture and wanted to try more of their creations.
Cheeses were very good if a little pricey - focaccias were wonderful. They also sell butter, eggs and meats from their freezer case as well as fresh veggies too. Great place to get wonderful handmade foods. Brought home their tomato and cheese focaccia and made the ultimate Jersey tomato sandwiches. So good!

I probably would've given more stars to this trip had there been a little more instruction for someone who was as nervous as I was having never done this before and bringing seven teenage girls, only one of whom had actually done this before. That being said we were fortunate enough to enjoy a perfect summer day floating lazily down the Delaware river. I make sure I read the reviews on trip advisor before we went and we were well prepared for the ticketing, which seemed to cause some reviewers some consternation but we had our tickets in hand and our waivers in hand and waltzed right onto a bus for our adventure. At first I was told on the phone that all children under the age of 14 had to wear life vest then we got there another young man told us 12 and under so of course only one of the teenagers actually agreed to wear a life vest, but that was my problem not theirs! So we hopped on the bus and the young man gave us some brief instructions about what to do and off we went fortunately there were other people getting off at the same three hour trip stop that we were so I followed them down to the river but there were absolutely no signs pointing the way. We got on the river fairly easily and roped ourselves together which was another great piece of advice from TripAdvisor reviewers and we coasted down with only one minor spot that we had to get up and walk our tubes over shallow water and rocks. There's a very cute hotdog barge type thing at one point and a tiny beach -type area that you can pull over and have a hotdog on the river. They were even a few picnic benches! It didn't seem to be associated with this particular outfit but it was actually a cute diversion which we didn't take advantage of. The three hour trip was more like a 2 1/2 hour trip even though the river was going quite slowly I felt. Overall I thought it was a very fun adventure and I would definitely like to go back. Definitely ask questions if you need to, as everyone who works there was very pleasant and accommodating!

Uhlerstown-Frenchtown Bridge

Reviewed By kmsmolen - Crestview, Florida

After exploring the interesting shops and having lunch in Frenchtown, we walked across the bridge to Pennsylvania and back. It's a nice short, flat walk.

There is only a pedestrian path on one side that serves for both directions. Hard for two people to walk abreast. When there are bikes and other foot traffic you have to squeeze past.

Cars have two narrow lanes, driving over an open metal grid where you can see the water below!

Fly School Circus Arts

Reviewed By MSI111 - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

My fiance and I wanted to try a new adrenaline pumping activity and we definitely found it! The staff were incredibly friendly and explained the elements of trapeze flying in a manner that I felt extremely safe at all times. They were quick to answer any questions I had and were encouraging the whole time! Trapeze flying is a definite must and Fly School Circus Arts is the place to try it. I know we will be back very soon to fly again!
