May We Suggest...

October 6, 2022

One of our missions at Discover Date Night is to celebrate local businesses, and,

as you know, there is no shortage of awesomeness in the Lehigh Valley! So, check back each Thursday for our humble suggestions.

Oh, and by the way...these are not affiliate links or paid ads. We don't get any money for getting you to click or check out any of these local spots. We just genuinely love them, and we think you will, too!

If you'd like to add a destination for the consideration of other Date Nighters, please feel free to do so in the comments below!

Enjoy the Valley,

Leann & Hope

Hope’s Pick

Milford, PA

(Yes, really, the whole town:) )

This week my pick is a little different. Instead of a specific place in the Lehigh Valley, I have a whole sweet little neighboring town to suggest...Milford, Pa.

Last fall, Eric and I spent a beautiful, relaxed long weekend in Milford. We chose Milford because we wanted to hike to Raymondskill Falls, the tallest waterfall in Pa! We went for the falls, but we will go back for all of the awesomeness that is Milford, PA.

After about a 3 mile hike, we arrived at the falls, and it was really stunning. The sound alone was breathtaking. We couldn't hear anything but the roar of the water rushing over the falls.

We parked ourselves under a waterfall and enjoyed our lunch.

After our hike, we checked into a lovely little loft that we booked on Airbnb, called The Still Life Studio. The location was great, and it really made our getaway feel like a full vacation.

The next 2 days in Milford we spent visiting local shops, bakeries, a local gemologist, a palm reader, and a number of historical sites.

We spent a lot of time visiting the Grey Towers Mansion, which was home to 2 Pa governors!

Our last night in Milford, we ate dinner at The Waterwheel Café. The Café had glass walls where you can actually see a restored 19th century water-powered grist mill, known as the Upper Mill Grist Mill.

The Upper Mill is a 24 foot working waterwheel, which listed on the National Register of Historical Places. The Mill was originally built in the 1800s!

While we waited for our dinner, we took the self-guided tour through three floors that displayed the mill in action. It was pretty fascinating to see the grinding of the grains by way of water power! (What can I say? We are dorks! We LOVE this kind of stuff!)

We would have been happy with the tour alone, but when we got our meal, we fell in love with the Waterwheel Cafe even more. The food made us feel at home. Everything was made from scratch, from the mashed potatoes to the apple pie! In fact, dessert was so good that we took a whole pie, that didn’t even survive the night in the loft with us! (Mmmmm)

So, if you want a weekend away with your honey that is close to home, but feels like you've traveled 200 years into the past, may I suggest the lovely little town of Milford, PA.

Until next week,
