Yup, here it is. I have a nifty collection of posts about to go worldwide over the next couple of months. I am showcasing really spectacular places to see in the Philadelphia Area that you should see before you die.

Stuff ordinary, extraordinary…traditional..untraditional. The usual and the unusual all about our Philadelphia Area.

See my other Buttermilk Falls Posting!

Getting here:

Old Mine Road 4.6 miles until it bears left. Continue on Pompey Rd. for about a mile. Turn left at stop sign on NPS 615N. To 206. Continue 1.4 miles and make a right at Wallpack Center (which will be a bunch of white buildings). Head straight to the Wallpack Environmental Sign. At 0.1 miles cross at a one lane bridge. At 0.4 miles make a right at the Wallpack Cemetary onto Mountain Road. Around the 2 mile point, make a right into the dirt parking lot for Buttermilk Falls and voila! Your adventure will begin.

Buttermilk Falls is New Jersey’s tallest and highest waterfall. Take a hike on a nice day to see this wondrous beauty in the beautiful Delaware Water Gap.

For the adventurous, there is a trail that climbs 1,000 feet to the top.

Now, the waterfall cascades down the mountain, however during “dryer seasons” not as much oomph and pizzazz. So go after it has rained a little bit.

They recently put in a wooden stairway to the top of the waterfall. Just use caution if trekking up because it most- likely will be very damp. You don’t want to be slipping and sliding, ¬†if you know what I am saying.

A great “nature day” for kids to be¬†amongst the wildlife, bring a picnic lunch.

The road is a bit bumpy so use caution.

Just don’t jump off the cliff.

Another Restaurant Review…..

 This is all mine my friends. You can watch and salivate. While I drink this nifty beer sampling.

 

If you already didn’t know, I HATE chain restaurants.

However, I got suckered into going like I always do and guess what pleasantly surprised.

Hey at least it’s a local chain in the Philadelphia area.

I was in the mood for something light to eat, but wanted to definitely have a drink, well, because it’s a brewery.

My date had the 8 ounce Kennett Square burger, I had a bite was delicious!
Made from our very own locally grown mushrooms, hence the Kennett Square name.

I had the Mediterranean grilled chicken salad. Was delightful.

Now, the best part of this meal…and curtain please. Is the beer sampler on the menu. You get to try a variety of beers brewed on location¬†and ahhhhhh.

Good little place to grab a quick bite and to have a few with friends.

Good beer.
