About this trip

Ice Cream for lunch?!?!?!?!  Yes, please!


For the last 28 years I've been meaning to stop by this location on my many trips between York and Philadelphia - and I never did.  I'm sad to say that I just saw this on their Facebook page - 

  


The Shoe House is under contract with new owners taking possession late July. We will continue as we have, with the last day of operations Sunday, July 24th. So, if you always wanted to see The Shoe, or bring friends/family, now is the time! 


I always meant to stop by for an ice cream cone and never did - the new owners plan to turn it into an Air BnB with no more ice cream so it's now or never!


 

Step into the Haines Shoe House to see what this famous roadside attraction has to offer you! 

Take a tour (tours are currently self guided with information posted throughout all 5 levels of the Haines Shoe House) and learn what it's really all a-boot! If you've enjoyed a tour in the past we hope you're curious enough to want to see all the changes we've made. Also, be sure and try some of Beck's delicious gourmet ice cream for the ride home!


Admission to the tour is $5.


For those close to East Norriton, PA - a carpool option is available.

A day out with other travel bugs at the Winterthur Artisan Show. Plenty of vendors, lots to see, beautiful clothes, jewelry, woodworking, soaps, honey in every flavor, unique items like a saxophone or a old camera twisted and turned into a table lamps. Wind chimes, paintings, bird boxes the list goes on and on with over 100 vendors touting their wares. A visit to the museum to see jacqueline Kennedy herself. We enjoyed ice cream from I think Northwoods farm ice cream truck, so creamy and delicious to the last spoonful. Was a hot and humid day as we strolled into the enchanted village admiring the little houses and fairy gardens with plenty of benches and water to keep us hydrated along our journey on garden lane. Tammi thank you for organizing the event. So much to see and do. Turned out to be a great day.

This was a really cool experience! As an animal lover, this was right up my alley! Tammi found this amazing wolf preserve and I learned a lot about wolves and the efforts to conserve them. The restaurant Tammi chose for us was great - live music on a Sunday evening! - and there was a lot of good conversation among the group.
