VACATION, ALL I EVER WANTED...

No need to jump on a plane to have a cool vacation. We have so much to choose from within a two-hour drive - amusement parks, local treasures, the Jersey Shore, and the Poconos. Pack (or download) some good books; we can help you choose with links to the best books of 2013. Enjoy 4th of July events and outdoor concerts. As always, we have a featured aboptable pet (a real cute kitty) and a perfectly funny barbeque from our resident comic, Marc Kaye.

This issue is sponsored by Sesame Place, where you can celebrate being a kid, or being a kid again! Visit on the Fourth of July and experience the park's ALL NEW "C... is for Celebrate!" fireworks show, set to Sesame Street music. Rock out with Elmo, Abby Cadabby, Cookie Monster and Count von Count as their music fills the air and the sky is covered with colorful bursts of brilliance. You'll get to see the sky painted red (and green and blue) from inside the park. This impressive display will certainly give you something to celebrate!

SUMMER FUN AT SESAME PLACE

5 LOCAL TREASURES YOU MAY NOT HAVE THOUGHT TO VISIT


Carousel Village in Wrightstown, PA has a beautiful carousel and a really cool little steam train ride through their 45-acre property.

You may have heard how beautiful the Garden of Reflection (Yardley, PA) is, but you really can't appreciate it until you visit in person.

Take a lovely walk across the Delaware River on the foot bridge from Lumberville to Bull's Island State Park in NJ which has a little playground for the kids.

Ringing Rocks, in Upper Black Eddy, PA, contains a great field of boulders, most of which resonate like bells if struck with a hammer or another rock.
