Recently, my wife and I had a chance to get away for the weekend and take the girls on a "kid-oriented" mini vacation. For the last few summers we have visited Hershey and Amish country in PA. My kids are 6 and 3 and really enjoy going to Dutch Wonderland. It's perfectly geared to kids their age. These trips have usually been focused on them with little room for Mommy or Daddy's interests....and that is perfectly fine. But this time I had to make a little detour on the way home. For a little while now I have been dying to visit the Cabela's in Hamburg PA and I decided this year I wouldn't miss it.

I'm glad I went. Even my wife was impressed with it's size and what could be found in it. I primarily wanted to visit the fly shop to pick through some fly tying materials but at around 7 ACRES of floor space the rest of the store beckoned me. The first thing you notice entering the doors is a "mountain" in the back center of the store that is about three stories tall and filled with various big game animals. The taxidermists that put this display together did an incredible job and it's worthy of any great natural history museum. An outdoors man or woman could spend a full day in this place very easily and not see everything. Unfortunately, we only had an hour and a half to spare before getting back on the road to get through NYC before the rush hour traffic started and I didn't get to see everything. Bottom line....if anyone one is traveling along I-78 in PA you owe it to yourself to stop in and take a look at the place.
