Bill's Old Bike Barn

Sensational collection - motorcycle, military, carousel, collectibles from around the world.

Reviewed By Susan F - Edison, New Jersey

It seems to have antiques of everything --- in addition to bikes and motorcycles, there were cameras, numerous Barbie dolls, clowns, carousel horses and other animals, stores outfitted from the 50s and earlier, e.g. a barber shop and mayor's office.
Was a bit unhappy with the political signage. Really? Aren't we all Americans? Why disrupt the amazing collection with politics.

Children's Museum

Play, learn, discover! 50+ interactive exhibits. Birthday parties. Field trips. Scout programs.

Reviewed By dc1232015 - Lynbrook, New York

This is a great small Children's museum. A lot of great hands on exhibits that children can easily access. Great for children of different ages. Even includes projects that the children can do at each station to take home about that exhibit.

Rohrbach's Farm Market, Bakery & Gift Shop

Unique shopping experience for the entire family. Festivals throughout the year. Closed January thru mid-April.

Reviewed By Yucatan-Admirer - PA

All these years visiting this area, and we've missed this wonderful place. Thanks to our hosts at the Maple Rose, we had a brochure and took the time to visit. The market and gift shop were full of delicious, beautiful, and fun items. The term gift shop doesn't do justice!

As for the festival, my regret is that we didn't have youngsters with us to take advantage of the activities. We did go on a hayride, which was free, and got a close look at the activities offered.

What a wonderful time. Just wish we could've stayed longer.

Pennsylvania train rides.

Reviewed By DOUGANDPOLLY - GRAND ISLAND

hard to believe that a village as small as Catawissa once had a train station of these proportions, particularly with another railroad running just to the south... this is where the Reading Railroad (remember it from Monopoly?) paused before diverging north on two routes toward Williamsport, and the spirits those long-ago passengers seem to invest this hard-to-maintain historic structure... have a good stop

Attended college here and never thought it would be a place to visit. The campus is a pure hill so you get the best legs after attending here. They redid a lot of the common area since I first visited.

We were on a road trip and decided to stop here. Nice old pieces and appreciated perusing through the shop. There were no small home décor items for purchase mostly big piece furniture items. Prices were fair.

Fine art and contemporary craft by Susquehanna Valley artists.

Reviewed By Tonnatraveler - minnesota

We esp liked that this Artspace is a "cooperative" among already successful local artists who staff the facility and offer a "reception" area for pre-Theater groups. Every month or so, 2 or more artists are featured. Their works are awesome and to collect such treasures at reasonable prices SHOULD be supported!

Columbia Creek Farm

Reviewed By mlflee - Brooklyn, New York

I stumbled onto this alpaca farm visit in another section within tripadvisor and made reservations to check out what the fuss was all about. If you love animals, this is a visit you should definitely do. Proprietor Jeff Carleton gave us an excellent presentation and tour of his alpaca farm. His expertise in these animals make for a very educational tour. What struck me as fascinating was how docile these relatively large animals were. Tour takes about an hour or so.

My husband and I stopped in to this little store on a Sunday afternoon and were greeted by friendly service and great conversation. The owner really new a lot about the history of her products. She had great stories to share! Not to mention we had some unexpected visitors! A mama deer and her fawn stopped in for some apples just 20 yards from the back door!! Definitely recommend the shop for a pleasant visit!
