Looking for something to do this weekend ? Whether its time spent with family, or a date day with your favorite someone, I am always in search of fun things to do. Please enjoy a few of my favorite places to enjoy some outdoor time !
The Canal Tow Path– By Foot or on bikes the beautiful canal path along the delaware river , and my favorite spot to hop on is in Ottsville where 611/212 meet. You can park your car, and about 1.5 miles down you will see Mueller’s General Store , a great little general store/deli, with a great selection of sandwiches, salads, drinks etc. We like to order lunch and sit outside along the towpath on the concrete tables, equipped with umbrellas to block the sun, and relax after a nice bike ride up the canal. The scenery of the river, nature, birds, frogs and ducks will surely relax you. If you would rather, there is also a little outside bar there with tables that offers food from Mueller’s Kitchen and you can also enjoy a summer beverage . I walk this path every week with my daughter and our dogs, and love coming on the weekends with my husband to enjoy a nice date day. You can also walk down to the river from Mueller’s and relax under the shade. Bring a blanket and picnic down closer to the river for a little more romance.
This is also a spot to rent tubes and float down the river on a hot summer day! Mueller’s is located at 3205 S Delaware Dr Easton Pa 610-252-8726
Kayaking/Paddle Boarding at Lake Nockamixon
So many things you can do at Lake Nockamixon, but one of my favorites is getting lost on the lake with my paddle board. We always seem to find a different spot, or hidden gem that is tucked off in one of the many coves at the lake. We always bring our packed lunch, a blanket , and of course, our phones for music. A lazy day on the lake .. nothing better. After a fun day on the lake, a trip to our favorite Ice cream place is a must. Be sure to visit Ow Wow Cow http://www.owowcow.com, for local homemade ice cream that will wow your tastebuds. We have our own paddle boards/kayaks, but you can rent them at Nockamixon Boat Rentalhttp://www.nockamixonboatrental.com
Take a Drive to Nowhere
This is my most favorite. We like to just get in our jeep, put the top down, music blaring, and go wherever the road takes us. So many things to see in beautiful bucks county , country roads with covered bridges, general stores, creeks, rivers and woods to hike and explore. Just get in your car and go somewhere you have never been, with no destiny, and see what you can find. We have found some of the cutest places to eat, winery’s , and local great towns and made a wonderful day out of it. Enjoy the sights, have a nice bite to eat, or just go for a hike. Make your own perfect day!
Winery’s and Music
If you love wine, checkout The Market at Del Val and Shadybrook Farm for their Unwined weekends, including music,beer wine and a fun night out. They also both offer food, so grab a blanket or chair and just relax .
Axe Throwing? Yup! What a Fun Night Out!
