I had recently had the great pleasure of visiting Lititz, PA - the so-named "America's Coolest Small Town." No really, that's what it is called. Thanks to the advice from one dear Brandy Brandt, a colleague of mine, we all decided to venture out because we actually had a day off together. I know, GASP!
I have to say, it really was a cool little town. There was the Sturgis Pretzel factory where my boys helped twist pretzels and "mock-play" putting them in the old ovens. The Wilbur Chocolate Factory ... almost as good as Hershey's ofcourse, offered many tasty treats and streets were lined with quaint little shops and boutiques where you could buy some Hot Pepper Jelly for only 8.99!
My favorite part would have to have been the old English, true to style, British pub where there was no table service, you must order from the bar where they sold Walker's crisps, many a brew, and staple son the menu were bangers and mash, cornish pasties, and fish and chips. Max and Charlie did not so much enjoy the British fare yet Michael and I went to town. It was perfect.
Explore your towns ... see what is out there!
