Phoenixville PACountySpot Directories made a stop in Phoenixville, PA this past week-end and collected lots of information for this Chester County Directory. We gathered more than 50 pictures from the town of Phoenixville during our stay. This borough in Chester County is really something to see. Great historic buildings that have been very well maintained. Phoenixville was a very comfortable place to spend a week-end night and there was a ton of night life. If you're looking for a nice place to visit on the outskirts of Philadelphia we very much recommend stopping by Phoenixville, PA!

We also collected lots of businesses in Phoenixville and will be adding them to our Chester County Business Directory very soon.

Check out all of our Phoenixville, PA photos.

Spring 2013 at Canoe Creek State Park

Canoe Lake at Canoe Creek State Park was lowered about five feet to allow for construction during the off season this year. The lake was lowered in October for the construction and is to remain at the reduced level until mid March 2013.

Canoe Lake lowered (7)

During a beautiful early spring day we stopped by Canoe Creek State Park and gathered some photographs of the lake at the lowered levels. Improvements are being made all around the lake, including the swimming area, fishing habitats and bridges around the lake. According to Park Representatives:

"When our park's beach area reopens next spring, visitors will find new easily accessible ramps and sidewalks leading to the lake that provide safe, enjoyable swimming to those with special needs,"  "Anglers, meanwhile, should be delighted to learn that there will also be a variety of fish habitat improvement and shoreline restoration and access projects at Canoe Lake."

Limestone Kilns (1)We also walked along the limestone trail to the historic Limestone Kilns and collected some photos of the kilns and trail. This is a very nice walking trail, easily accesible to people and their pets, as was evidenced by the numerous people and their faithful companions that we passed along the way. If you are looking for a nice walking trail Canoe Creek State Park should be on your list.

CountySpot Directories visited several Pennsylvania Counties

Our travels took us on a 377 mile journey through Pennsylvania yesterday with many stops along the way to gather information and take pictures. Most of the counties were merely passed through, as we had already completed extensive visits to those PA counties.

cumberlandprisonWe stopped along the way in Cumberland and York County and collected many photos of Carlisle, Boiling Springs and Dillsburg PA. We also traveled through Lebanon, Dauphin and Berks County before we finally ran out of daylight in Womelsdorf PA.  Once we get all the photos sorted out they will be posted on the appropriate county sites!
