Our Trip to Burlington means BIG things for the Lehigh Valley

        Burlington, VT September 2012

Lehigh Valley Find & Go Seek is a fun and easy way to search, discover and talk about what's great (and not so great) to do in our area. We all know some of the best ideas and suggestions come from our friends and trusted sources.  Find & Go Seek collects and organizes all that information for you in one convenient place. 

As parents we were always hearing bits and pieces of what was going on in our area from friends or neighbors. It was mind boggling to try to organize everything we had available especially when searching for child care, preschools or special events.  We’d hear mixed reviews about one place or another but could never keep anything straight. We have an active and diverse community in the Lehigh Valley, there is so much is available to us! There are activities for every type of family are out there and it’s about time we have a resource where everything comes together in one place.  Our comprehensive listings along with the honest reviews from parents and caregivers makes creating memorable experiences and finding quality resources effortless. 

Stephanie and Nick Miller stumbled upon Find & Go Seek while visiting Burlington, VT in 2012.  Stephanie found the site when looking to find ways to entertain their two small children during their visit and was impressed by Find & Go Seek’s comprehensive list of activities and user reviews. She set out to search for similar sites in her hometown and was disappointed to find there was nothing comparable. Stephanie sat down for coffee with Dana and Andy Freeman of Williston, VT, the founders of Find & Go Seek and knew she must bring Find & Go Seek back with to the Lehigh Valley so her friends and neighbors could enjoy all it has to offer. 

Lehigh Valley Find & Go Seek encompasses the areas in and around Lehigh Valley in Eastern Pennsylvania, including Allentown, Bethlehem and Easton and surrounding towns.

A Visit to JellyBean Town USA ...

This morning we made a stop to JellyBean Town USA!  We have been trying to get in to see this fun little gem in Nazareth for a while now and finally made it there.  Jelly Bean Town is a unique concept.  Their "village" has a post office, Tool Shop, Dress Up area, Train table, giant blackboard wall and more!  Our almost 3 year year old was thrilled to move about the space playing with all different things.  Though, her favorite was the dress up area and leaving behind the "princesses" was pretty sad when it was time to go.  There is a craft area for children to do a make and take project (we made bunny ears!).  Toys for all ages are available and the whole family can have a blast here.

We met the owner Tara Carson while visiting and she was so welcoming and interested to show is everything her space has to offer.  JellyBean Town USA hosts art classes, birthday parties, and open play days during the week for parents to bring their kids and just PLAY!  The cost for a visit with unlimited play time is just $5.  Make sure to stop in and check out this great little outing with your family.

JellyBean Town USA 52 South Main Street Nazareth, PA 18064 610- 248-0549
