Lake Wallenpaupack: Destination for Relaxation

Recently my husband, Frederick, and I enjoyed a nice escape to Lake Wallenpaupack in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania. We enjoyed a relaxing break from the hustle and bustle of working demanding jobs.  The lake is beautiful and brought a sense of serenity and peace but as we drove to explore the surrounding areas, we realize that the Pocono Mountains have a lot to offer.

  1. Lake Wallenpaupack and the surrounding area offers plenty of outdoor adventures!  Frederick and I enjoyed taking a paddleboat out on the lake but there are also plenty of trails  for hiking and biking.  You can also take a short drive to nearby Bushkill Falls and take in the beauty of nature as you hike to see eight waterfalls. 20170923_112545
  2. The Boat House Restaurant offers the best local cuisine! For an appetizer, we enjoyed fresh mozzarella and bruschetta – the freshest dish I have ever tasted.  For dinner, Frederick enjoyed a Lobster Roll and I ordered a grilled steak salad. When it arrived to the table, I was pleasantly surprised that my salad was accompanied by FRIED GREEN TOMATOES!!! Yummy!!!20170923_170819
  3. There is nothing better to end Summer than to enjoy a cup of delicious ice cream.  On the drive back to Virginia, we passed through Lancaster County, PA, the home of the Turkey Hill Experience.  Sorry, but I enjoyed my Turkey Hill Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough ice cream before snapping a pic!
