Pennsylvania &Stroudsburg Joy | 13 Aug 2008

Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania area sightseeing

When my friend Doris and I were house/dog-sitting in Madison, NJ (http://www.americantowns.com/nj/madison/organization/borough_of_madison/), we took a day trip to the Stroudsburg, PA, area. First we explored Buskill Falls (http://www.visitbushkillfalls.com/index.php) and later lunched at Dansbury Depot in Stroudsburg.

Pennsylvania &Pittsburgh–Phipps Conservatory Joy | 30 Jun 2008

Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens

After lunching with Doug and Jennifer on Wednesday (6/25), Doris and I arrived in Madison, NJ (a lovely small town less than 25 miles from Manhattan) on Friday afternoon after a side trip on Thursday to an AAA Gem-rated attraction in Pittsburgh, the Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens. I’ve toured several conservatories and botanical gardens around the country and this one was outstanding.

Fallingwater-Frank Lloyd Wright &Pennsylvania Joy | 03 Sep 2007

Fallingwater—Frank Lloyd Wright home

Although this is my first post, I want to share one aspect (I’ll share more later) of a trip to the American Society of Indexers national convention in Philadelphia in May 2007.

On our return trip to the Cincinnati, Ohio, area, my traveling companions and I veered off the interstate to see Fallingwater, a Frank Lloyd Wright designed home in southwestern Pennsylvania.

According to visitPA.com Fallingwater is “…the only remaining great Wright house with its setting, original furnishings, and artwork intact.” Click on the photo to see more of Fallingwater’s details.

‘The key to the setting of the house is the waterfall over which it is built.’—visitPA.com
