Martin Guitars

Whether making guitars for god (Eric Clapton) or mortals, Martin Guitar does all 300 steps by hand.

Reviewed By Hawkshoe - Pennsylvania

If you have any interest in how guitars are made, then you should definitely head to Nazareth, PA and take the tour of Martin's guitar factory. The tour lasts about an hour and takes you right into the action. You get to see all phases of the guitar making process happening feet/inches away. The only downside to the tour was that the group size is to large so those in the back are left not really being able to ask questions. You do where a headset so you can hear the explanation but If you are in the back, you aren't even looking at what is being described. Also, there is quite a bit of interference through the headset at times. Still, you can get a good feel for the production process.

In addition to the factory tour, there is a museum which is quite nice. It tells the history of the Martin business and has memorabilia. We spent about 45 minutes in the museum. There is also a store and a nice area where you can try out a few of the guitars for yourself.

Lakota Wolf Preserve

Reviewed By xraysta - Tinton Falls, NJ

First, if you miss the shuttle be prepared to hike straight up steep and muddy inclines to arrive at your destination. The destination is a fenced in area that houses very cool wolves, bobcats and foxes. That's it folks. You pay a sizable fee, used to support the preserve, to see a bunch of animals behind fences. We were disappointed that we could not walk through the preserve or get a closer look at these beautiful creatures. In addition, the staff is VERY rude and inflexible. They do NOTHING to make your stay more pleasant and if you are relying on donations to support your facility it may be a good idea to treat your guests with respect and kindness.

We went during their annual harvest fest and it was amazing. My 21 month old daughter loved the animals and running around the farm. She really enjoyed the pony rides as well. The fresh baked cookies, bread and pretzels are a must. The beekeeper show for kids was also fun. They have great food, music and lots of fun things for kids to do and it was only a $10 admission fee wth kids under 3 free. They also have homemade ice cream, pickles, desserts etc. There is a shuttle from the parking lot to the farm as well.

Columcille Megalith Park

Reviewed By Hawaiianskirt - Fanwood, New Jersey

Nice, peaceful place to walk through. Interesting rocks placed throughout park. We saw a turtle on our hike and enjoyed the pretty July day. There is a chapel and an interesting rock structure. Good place to take interesting photos for sure. It's odd that it is privately owned, I almost felt like I was on someone's property but I would definitely recommend it.

Old Mill Pub

Reviewed By barroske - South Orange, New Jersey

I've been here a few times. Nice place, very laid back. Dart board in the corner, plenty of TVs with sports or other stuff on.

Beer is good priced and an OK selection (Yeungling, Goose Island, etc). Liquor selection is the basics, Jim Beam, J&B, Wild Turkey. No high end brands that I could see.

The staff is great. The bartender is fantastic. On my second visit she not only greeted me by name, she new what I was drinking.

The group I was with had wings and fries and said the wings are really good.

Nice place to hang out for a while and relax. Smoking is allowed, so if it bothers you, don't go.

This is the second time we've paddled with EOW. Everyone is polite and knows what they're talking about. You can get a canoe anywhere- but you can't always find nice people who don't mind answering questions. They know everything there is to know about DWGNRA and are happy to help. I'll definately be back. Hopefully overnite canoe trip next time. Thanks!!

Blue Ridge Estate Winery

Reviewed By Janrickstryker

Sarah was awesome! She explained all the wines very efficiently, and didn’t pass judgment on us ‘sweet’ wine connoisseurs.
However my daughter-in-law prefers very red dry wines and she said that they were some of the best wines she has ever had. And given her expertise and how many types of wine that would entail, that says quite a lot. We will definitely be back for a Friday night dinner. All the wines we tasted were excellent. There is a five dollar charge for a five choice winetasting, but they are free poured and Sarah did not chinch on the amounts.

The new building and surroundings are beautiful. Went for a beer and wine tasting. Beers we're good and wines we're good as well. Thought the pairing was a little cheap but gave us something to joke about. We were splitting the tasting and thought the pairing might have been cheeses and meats but is stuff like one herrs chocolate flavored pretzel and one tiny cracker to dip in a jam. We asked if we can get a second tiny cracker for the other to try and was told only one cracker per tasting. Like I said, something to laugh about. Plan on going back and bringing friends when they stop up.
