Lake Wallenpaupack. It is really a beautiful lake. Bushkill falls is really nice too. The towpath between Lackawaxen Pa and Kimbles. You can sometimes spot over 50 Bald Eagles on one trip!
Coras Bistro in Hawley has really good food. Kays in Lake Ariel has really great service, and bread and Eclairs! Spanky's in Newfoundland is nice for breakfast, good atmosphere.
