What's it all about?

Words spoke by you, our fans:

1.     “Learning of all the places in our area and traveling to them. I do not have to go out of state to see new adventurous places, we have it right here. Without this magazine I would not have explored these places.”

2.     "It's about 'here'-not the Poconos, not Philly, not Pittsburgh-but here in the Susquehanna Valley. Packed with people I know, shops I have been in, restaurants I have or want to patronize."

3.     "When I receive my magazine in the mail, I always set aside a quiet place and cuddle up with it with a pen and paper, making a list of the restaurants and sights I want to see. Thank you for all the time and effort put into making this my favorite magazine!!"
