Fun At Lake Tobias Wildlife Park

Bring your whole family and experience the outdoors in the "wild" safari on specially designed cruisers that takes you across 150 acres of rolling land where you will see herds of wild and exotic animals from around the world. 
The safari tour might only open in some certain months so be sure to contact them by phone or visit their website for hours. 

For the safari tour, tour guides will be with you for the entire tour giving you an expert information about the animals' species and their habitats.
The Safari Tours are the main attraction at the park because you get the chance to get up close with the animals, as well as you can feed them and pet them too! ;).

There is also a petting zoo that is always a favorite among the children where they can pet African pygmy goats and llamas, and many more. If you have kids under 8 years old., be sure they are strictly accompanied and guided upon closely.

Snacks are available at the park, so you don't need to worry about getting hungry. Picnics are also allowed in the park and you can bring your own food. But there will be a minimal fee for the picnic tables at the park.

Be sure to wash your hands and your kids' hands well before eating, particularly if you have kids touching the animals.

Have fun!

Pride of the Susquehanna Riverboat Cruise

I did enjoy a lazy ride on the Susquehanna river in this authentic paddle wheeler riverboat. It was a relaxing journey while at the same time enjoying a unique vantage point of wonderful architectures, the Capital Complex and fine views of beautiful City Island, including the historic mansions on Front Street.

It was also a good thing to know some basic facts about The Pride of Susquehanna paddle wheel riverboat...that The Pride is one of the seven remaining "authentic" paddle wheel riverboat in the U.S. It has no propellers or other forms of propulsion or steering except paddle wheels!

The cruise starts from the City island Docks, which is just down from the Metro Bank Park on the Susquehanna River, facing the Harrisburg Skyline in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

The Alfred's Victorian Mansion

I got the chance to experience what many would call as a fine dining experience in a quaint setting of a gorgeous mansion in Middletown, Pennsylvania.

This victorian mansion is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places. It is a Victorian brown-stone mansion. Brownstones were restored on the mansion using natural hydraulic lime and lithomax, in repairing damaged or missing brick, stones and mortars 100 years after its original construction.

Inside Alfred's Victorian Mansion is a restaurant built in 1888, and decorated with carved wood antiques and gingerbread accents. It's decorated with heavy drapes,-Victorian style and with bulky pieces of furniture, - one symbol of a Victorian accessory accents. Sorry, wasn't able to get photos inside :(.

Our food for lunch was okay. I had a butternut chicken, but I didn't like the butternut glaze toppings on it :(. But the chicken was good. I finished my chicken except for the toppings, lol! Our meal was also served with green salad and dessert,
