Oh great and powerful hive mind, I come to you for help!
I will be meeting my best friend for a fun and awesome day trip somewhere between us. She’s coming from North Jersey (Newark NJ area) and I will be leaving from Harrisburg PA. It will be this Saturday 8/14/10.
We would like to get together for lunch and then spend the day doing fun things!
We want this to be stress free and relaxing. We would consider fun things to be events, activities, or interesting locations. It could also just be a nice place to sit and talk.
We thought about Philly for a while, but think it might be more enjoyable and less stressful to do it when we have more time.
We haven’t picked a location at all yet. Allentown? East Stroudsburg? Probably within 100 miles of both cities, give or take.
A little about us:
We would like some Food/Restaurant suggestions. Maybe Mexican or Italian and unique places are a plus. A nice park or State Park would rule. We are nerdy. Nothing too physically demanding, we don’t want to go on a long hike or climb a mountain. A museum would be nice too.
