Dutch Haven is a great little place in Ronks, Pennsylvania and makes a mean shoo-fly pie.

Intercourse

Certainly one of the most joked about names for a town in the country, Intercourse, Pennsylvania is a neat little town in the heart of Amish Country. I’m glad they have put a seat next to the sign and embraced the idea of people stopping for a photo.

Al Capone’s Cell

Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania once held the infamous gangster Al Capone. While I wouldn’t want to spend a day in jail, Al Capone’s cell looks like it was pretty cozy. At least I could catch up on some reading.

Eastern State Penitentiary

Right in the heart of Philadelphia, Eastern State Penitentiary was an active prison from 1829-1971. Now it is a museum, and a really interesting place to visit.

Geno’s Steaks

I know all of my Philly people will tell me this place is “just for tourists” and they know a better place. But every time I’m in Philly, I stop by Geno’s for a delicious Philly Cheesesteak.

Fall Color

This tree was so vibrant that I just tilted my camera skyward and took a few shots. The color came through well so I thought I’d give it its own post. This is in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Roadside America

One of the coolest little out of the way attractions in the country. Roadside America is a giant miniature village located in Shartlesville, Pennsylvania. I can’t imagine going to see this place and not smiling. This is one of my favorite sections, a small country church.
