Written for MyCentralJersey.com on 12/11/17

LAMBERTVILLE – I’ve been to Lambertville and New Hope many times. However, virtually every single time, I end up wandering into the same shops, the same restaurants and the same bars.

Sisters Liz Horvath and Kat Pacelli, who founded Sister Cities Food and Shop Tours in August of this year, get that in an area so bustling, it can be easy to fall into this trap – which is one of the reasons why they started their tour company.

6 ways to get in Christmas spirit in Lehigh Valley

Written for MyCentralJersey.com on 12/4/17

Surrounded by elaborately decorated Christmas trees, jolly holiday music, leisurely strolls by horse and carriage, and holiday markets stuffed with artisan goods, you may have a feeling that you might be in the North Pole, but there’s just as good a chance that you’re in Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley area, which becomes a Christmas epicenter during December.

“Whether visitors are experiencing the holiday spirit in Allentown, Bethlehem, Easton or the dozens of picturesque boroughs that make up the Lehigh Valley, the holidays are special thanks to the small-town charm and age-old traditions that truly exemplify the region,” said Alicia Quinn, strategic brand manager for Discover Lehigh Valley.
