Summertime-Upper Delaware

This year’s Summertime  — Guide to the Upper Delaware focuses on some of the most iconic summer leisure activities. 

What says “summertime” like swimming? Linda Drollinger reminiscences about the swimming holes of old, then gives a practical guide to the best venues for taking a cold plunge nowadays, from pools to lakes to the Delaware River (and a reminder that you should always wear your life jackets in the river).

During those long, hot days you can build up a powerful thirst. The emerging craft breweries of the Upper Delaware region are ready to satisfy that thirst with a variety of extraordinary local brews. Isabel Braverman has obtained some recommendations from them, including what they think are their best summer beers.

For those who prefer non-alcoholic beverages, we offer “Drink it in,” by Laura Silverman. Interesting beverage options are all too often ignored when planning a barbeque, but Silverman has come up with a few ideas for drinks that are non-alcoholic, refreshing and include fresh local farm or foraged ingredients, for those who love that farm-to-table theme.

Swimming is only one of many water-based activities, and Lake Wallenpaupack, Pennsylvania’s third-largest lake, offers a full panopl.y of them—including parasailing. Allison Mowatt takes you for a tour of activities in the area, including hiking and some of the many culinary and cultural amenities of nearby Hawley.

We hope you find plenty of ideas in this issue to help you explore the Upper Delaware during this year’s season. Here’s to summertime.
