Boalsburg, PA was our destination of the day.  Driving into Boalsburg is like stepping back in time, to the days in which most Americans lived in small villages and towns. Here you walk to the post office to pick up your mail, walk to the cafe for a bite of lunch, go ice skating in the nearby park, sit on the front porch and snooze.  

Each year Boalsburg puts on a traditional Memorial Day celebration complete with a parade, a community walk to the cemetery, speeches, arts and crafts sale, military reenactments and much more. The three day week-end attracts up to 25000 visitors.  This reason for this is that Boalsburg is the birthplace of the Memorial Day Holiday.

Visitors to the Boalsburg area come to visit the shops and restaurants and to soak up that small-town feeling. People who live here and own businesses strive to maintain the town's unique personality.

We spent some time visiting the unique shops and taking in the small town history. For lunch we stopped at Duffy's Tavern and dined on the porch while watching the chickens roam through the yards.  And no, we did not order chicken!

In the afternoon we toured the rest of Bald Eagle State Park, including the various picnic areas and the marinas.
