Tour Pennsylvania's mining history at these mines.
We saw on the website that the first tour was to be at 11 AM, but that the office opened at 10 AM. We were surprised to find it open when we arrived early. Turns out a big group arranged a special tour at 10 AM, more convenient for us. (Lesson is, call ahead to find out if there are added tours). We so enjoyed the two tours, going in the mine was a bit more interesting. Sure the train is bumpy as it's always been. They drive down and stop for everyone to get down and see two tunnels. The former miner who drove and guided us was fun, passionate and knowledgable. Lots of history. The school kids down there seemed to enjoy as much as we did.

It was the year 1829 when Americans were getting used to their newly elected president, Andrew Jackson, that 23-year old David G. Yuengling, an immigrant from Wurttemberg, Germany, settled in Pottsville, Pennsylvania, and started a brewery. Originally named the Eagle Brewery, today the Yuengling pride, symbolic of the American Eagle. Each Yuengling label bears the eagle trademark chosen by young David Yuengling so long ago. Previously located on Centre Street, current site of Pottsville's after only two years of operation. A new brewery was then constructed on Mahantongo Street, where operations continue today. The brewery remains family operated by Richard "Dick" Yuengling, Jr. and his daughters are being groomed as the sixth generation.
Beer Historified. I know, that is not a word but I think it sums up well. There is a history to this brewery and it is on the National Historic Registry. The tour runs several times a day, is free and my guide was obviously enjoying the job so it was fun. It took about an hour and you get to see “The Cave,” the bottling line and lots more. Afterwards, I had to look up “Sternenwirth” for a bit more history. You might like to also. Great inside peek at how they have done it for years. You get samples at the END of the tour…so anticipate that part. If you can swing it, definitely worth the couple of hours of time to find the brewery, park on the streets and take it. Great fun.

Weekly flea market, Fri 8-5 & Sat 8-3. Antiques, collectibles, furniture, household.
We stopped by here on the way from our Frackville hotel to Knoebels. We actually stayed at the Comfort Inn in Frackville so that we could stop by this place on the way to Knoebels. If you are an "experienced" flea market enthusiast, you will be disappointed. The place is in a house/storefront and that's about it. There is another flea market just outside of Knoebels in Paxinos which is much bigger than this place but still relatively small. If you need to cure your flea market fix near Knoebels, go to Lewisburg (but only on Sunday).

Golf Digest Magazine rated Mountain Valley 4.5 stars as a best value course based on conditions and rates.

Tight front nine, more open back nine, good greens. however, no drinking water available except to purchase at halfway house at 11th hole-and it was 90 degrees. no warning at the start about lack of water during the round (9th hole does not return to clubhouse.) bunkers not being attended to, as grass growing throughout them.

Yes they have cars but all kinds of other things. Upstairs they have a soda shop ( re-created ) and tables with a replica behind the bar of Elvis. A wall of records, tape tracks etc. In another room is things from when JFK was president. Too much to mention just take a trip.

One of only two remaining reverse screen theaters in the State of Pennsylvania. Renovated into a performing arts center in the heart of Downtown Pottsville.
A really great place to enjoy musical performances, plays and other theatrical performances in a somewhat intimate setting. The theater has only 200 seats, and they are all modern and very comfortable. They even have built-in cup holders. The restoration of the building was done very well and nearly authentic to the time when it was in its hayday. The chandeliers and sidelights are very impressive and do their job very well...without glare. A small lobby where the requisite freshly made popcorn, drinks, candy, etc., are available at reasonable prices. Ticket prices are quite reasonably priced, too. Check the website for the current schedule, pick one and go. You'll enjoy yourself.

6 Displays of trains and animated buildings and figures
Great for anyone with an interest in trains, children will love it. It can get rushed during local holiday events but still much to take in. Go on off days and hours to fully appreciate all the details.
