2nd year in a row we got less snow in blizzard in poconos than Philadelphia but it is still beautiful out here, not black snow like in the city. Kids went skiing at camelback dressed like Santas and they wanted to win a free season pass but someone else won that. Still they skied for free and they know about other deals at Camelback and other area ski resorts. I hope their's a plane for me and the wife when we go to the airport to go back to Fla.

We'll also be happy to answer any questions or help you with some ideas about PA Tourism. As Chuck pointed out our tourism budget has been reduced dramatically along with many other state services. We are very active in the social media environment with our new Office of Social Media that hopefully keeps getting the word out. Check us out on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Foursquare or Flickr - our channels are all: visitPA. Thanks.

Thank you as well.  I'm happy to participate, and am active on several tourism boards locally, state level and nationally.  So, I'm also pleased to help!  Regards to you this Christmas.  Our present arrived at 3am this morning when our Marine & his beautiful wife arrived for the holiday!  Stay well!

I'm a new follower, and want to reflect on Allie's 10/06 post.  Most PA residents are not aware of the impact of PA Tourism.  I work in that sector; and here are some important facts:  Tourism promotion funding was reduced from $32M in 2009 to $14.2 in 2010; and then the Rendell administration cut further to only $11.2M midway thru the year; an overall 65% reduction.  Did you know Tourism is the 2nd largest industry in PA, behind Agriculture?  And, that the Tourism budget in the Pocono Mountain Region rivals Philly's?  A mere $28 billion is injected into the PA economy with 400,000 jobs & $10.7 billion in wage/benefits & $2.8 billion on state & municipal taxes.  Help us keep PA a great tourism spot.  And, if I can help anyone with answers on PA tourism; if I don't know the answer, I'll find out!  Regards to everyone.

Pat and the kids want to ski Camelback Friday Christmas Eve. Free if you dress like Santa elves or raindeer.   Have any of you done this?

Hey Allie if you belong to tripatini you're not an old lady. When we were up in Philly visiting family my wife dragged me on one of those galleries walks. I didnt want to go because I don't like modern art but there was all kinds of stuff some of it really good and we had a good time. All ages were there too.

My girlfriends want me go on a Philadelphia gallery tour with them on the evening of November 5th. I have not done this at night. Have any of you? Will we be the only old ladies out on the town?

Allie, To help with your leaf peeping planning check out our weekly foliage report published every Tuesday afternoon. It will offer some good drives to make. http://www.visitpa.com/trip-ideas/see-more-pa/fall-in-pa-2009/index...
