Fee $10 dollars. I paid for myself and two other people. A complete waste. There was one table with garlic. The rest were either nothing interesting, or wine and cheese with crazy lines for tasting. It seems the crowd just go to drink and eat in small amounts, but that justify the expense. So lines were long. Samples not enough. And people who traveled for the "event" were turned away. I was really into trying and buying new things. Ended up trying in a crazy hurry mustard and buying and a sip of two wines and buying, since I didn't want to completely waste the experience. So I paid total 55 dollars for a
Bottle of wine and a bottle of mustard if you add everything. Plus a wasted afternoon. Would not recommend it at all.

There are lots of vegetable vendors, make sure to walk and look first, the prices are all over the place. Shop for the best price. From art to antiques you can probably find what you want. Lots of what I call yard sale vendors. Fresh baked goods, ice cream, sandwiches and meats are all available and look fresh.

GoggleWorks Center for the Arts

Reviewed By scootercat92 - Towson, Maryland

We didn't realize when we planned our trip the blues festival was the same weekend. There was also an arts and crafts festival at the center. There were lots of different types of art from photography to glass sculptures to jewelry. The glass blowing and pottery demonstrations were great. You can tell they love what they do. We had a great time. I don't think it's a place for young kids but older kids may enjoy it.

Colebrookdale Railroad

Lost in the deep woods sheltering the Manatawny and Ironstone Creeks is a mythical secret valley. Though today only white-tailed deer, great blue heron, and bald eagles know the beauty of this legendary land, it was once the province of pioneers and patriots. Their stories can be heard in the soft winds whispering through the tall trees and towering trestles of the Colebrookdale Railroad - a magical, forgotten railway to the heart of this Secret Valley. The "Secret Valley Line" is your ticket to a place and time when iron rails connected a divided people and the heart of the nation pulsed with the potent energy of the steam locomotive. Completed by soldiers home from the Civil War just four months after the Transcontinental Railroad united the East and West, the Colebrookdale is a record of epic engineering and heroic human drama. Eight-point-six miles long and a century-and-a-half back in time, the Secret Valley Line beckons you to experience for yourself the unexpected treasures of Southeastern Pennsylvania.

4.5 stars and rounding up! I decided to take my family on a "polar express" train ride this year but have never done this before so was hesitant given the high cost, the 2 hour drive and not knowing if the kids would be bored sitting in a train the entire time. I'm glad I booked this. The train was nicely done and festive. The kids enjoyed it.

There is a daytime train, a 4pm train and a 7 pm train. We booked the 4pm train which I think gives you the best of both worlds. Sunset today was around 4:30pm. We were able to see the creeks and even a small waterfall outside for part of the train ride and then it was dark for that polar express feeling. It ended early enough for the long drive home too.

Each "cabin class" is different and priced accordingly so you need to make sure you book the one you want. We booked the dining car, which is the only one that serves a full meal (as a yelp elite, would you expect otherwise?).
The dining car was decorated very nicely and the food was surprisingly good. The pre-set dinner included a generous portion of Turkey, ham, sweet potatoes, mash potatoes, stuffing, green beans, a side salad and roll and a small dessert and tea or coffee. My husband and I really liked the food but the kids barely ate anything. My suggestion would be to have a kid-friendly meal option for the kids. It would cut down on wasted food, unnecessary cost to the company and would be more preferable for the kids.
Santa came onboard midway and you had the opportunity to take pictures with the photographer ($10 for the photo).
There is also an outdoor car which is open to all passengers.
All cabin cars receive hot chocolate (half cup) and a cookie. My kids asked for marshmallows but unfortunately, toppings are not an option (suggestion #2....).
The tables in the dining car fit 4 people and all tables were full. If you are not a party of 4, 8, ,12, etc, you will be sitting with strangers. For a family of 5, this is not ideal. The seats are assigned and I had called ahead to have them split us 3 and 2 and confirmed again on the the way there as well. However, the seats that they assigned to us were 4 and 1. My husband ended up sitting by himself, although they did put him in the table behind us so he wasn't far. I noticed this happened to another family too. It wasn't ideal but it worked out ok since my husband didn't mind. Not sure what they could do about this since the cabin car is very narrow but if something could be done, it would be awesome (suggestion #3).

There weren't many activities on the train but in the dining car, we were constantly being served something. And then after dinner, we had our photo op with Santa. I don't know what the non-dining cars did the entire time. I suppose there were some volunteer carolers that walked around some of the cars for entertainment but they aren't a "scheduled act" that's guaranteed to be there. If there were some activities, maybe a funny skit or show, that would make this perfect!
We've been on a Christmas bus ride in Hershey Park where there was an entertaining and funny act as well as interactive caroling. (Suggestion #4).

All in all, this was a fun, festive train ride that we enjoyed, albeit a little pricey, but it's once a year and the kids don't stay little forever, so why not?

One of my many winery stops on Memorial Day weekend for a tasting! The tasting room was on the smaller side, but we snuck a spot at the bar with no problem as it was crowded. There was a live band upstairs that we caught...MoreThanks so much for posting the review, klj913! We're glad you enjoyed the concert - we'll be doing them until the end of September. If you ever get the chance to come up on a weekday, the Tasting Room is a little less crowded then!

If you are looking for a fun night with the entire family, look no further! The evening starts with ostriches out front, band playing pregame and the fun never ends. Mascots, between inning fun and constant entertainment. Oh by the way, a baseball game is being played! The best part of the night, however, is the awesome and plentiful assortment of food. You MUST try the French fries! Actually there isn't a bad snack to have. If you are lucky, you'll hit a fireworks evening to finish the day. This is no doubt, the best minor league park in the country. Don't miss this on your visit!

We loved it here. :) Checked it out last weekend, beautiful weather and was looking to have some fun with our kids, ages 8 and 11. The inside is a castle with fun decor but in and outside. Lots of great games and prices are great. You gets lots of tickets and the prizes are really great too. The outside has a jumping castle-we did not try it out though, mini golf-large and nice course, fun, batting casges-did not try out, smaller and regualr size go karts-saving for next time but courses looked nice. Cute snack bar and seating areas with tv. So clean and nice looking. No chipped paint, food on floor/tables, just really nice and clean. So impressed honeslty. Would go here ten times over before hitting Chuck E Cheese. Bday partuies going on and the prices for them on the flier looked great. Can't wait to go again! :)
