We are officially into the summer season at Bear Creek. July has always been my favorite month of the year. It is the month I most associate with family trips and vacations. Over the years, my family has taken a number of vacations. We often took trips to the beach, for our family it was Point Pleasant Beach in New Jersey. The thing we liked the most about Point Pleasant was that our family could enjoy a full day of activities at the boardwalk then enjoy some great local restaurants and relax at night. The food never tasted so good and the air conditioning never felt so good than after a full day at the beach and the boardwalk.
Bear Creek is very fortunate to be located nearby so many great activities. First and foremost is Dorney Park. Dorney Park is within twenty minutes of the resort. I was a long time season pass holder, and thanks to my girlfriend, a current season pass holder as well. After a 21 year hiatus from the park, I can attest that the park has really grown. It is an ideal spot for families of all ages. Dorney Park is just one of the great offerings that the Lehigh Valley provides for families and couples alike. If the park isn’t your style, try the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs, or The Lehigh Valley Grand Prix, or one of the area’s many wineries. The area has so much to offer and keeps growing all the time.
If you are looking for a great summer trip, consider visiting one of the areas attractions such as Dorney Park and coming back to Bear Creek to relax at The Spa or having an excellent dinner at The Grille. If this sounds like something you are interested in, check out our Stay and Scream Dorney Park package. If you live locally, you can still feel like you are on a vacation with Margarita Mondays, Music Under the Stars on Thursdays, or a visit to our Spa.
No matter what activity you do during the day, I promise the food will taste great and the air conditioning will feel better than ever.

Last week I went up to the Grille for our Thursday night Music Under the Stars. We do this every Thursday night during the summer months. The weather was a little off, with ominous clouds the whole time, but it stayed dry and turned out to be a fun night. It happened to also be a Chamber Mixer with both the Upper Perkiomen and the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce. I had a couple of fantastic conversations and met some new contacts from both chambers. It is great to see the hard working members of our local business communities come out of the office and up to the resort to network with likeminded people. A good amount of the people attending the mixer stuck around for dinner and music on the deck, and a good time was had by all. This week is our annual Lobster Week and the Grille has been the best scene in the area for dinner. After tonight only two days are left of Lobster Week, but know need to worry, reservations are still available and even if you miss it, the Trail’s End is having Margarita Monday with Tex-Mex food by the pool. If dinner is your reason, then Bear Creek is in season! http://www.bcmountainresort.com/dining See you soon!
Everybody has something that they enjoy so much that they will sacrifice a good portion of their disposable income to experience it. For me, it’s going out to eat. I will travel long distances, cross state lines, and do endless research to find unique dining locations throughout our area. As this time of year approaches, I turn my attention to outdoor dining venues.
As my girlfriend Shannon will attest, my criteria for going out to eat is very strict. I refuse to fall into the chain restaurant trap. I also refuse to take her to an outdoor dining experience that is no more than putting tables on a sidewalk or parking lot and providing subpar food that can be found anywhere. I can say emphatically that the outdoor dining at Bear Creek is unlike anything else in the region. Full dinner service on the deck is accompanied by great live, local music. The setting is relaxing and the food delivers as well. Instead of sitting 10 feet from exhaust fumes and pedestrian traffic, you are in the middle of 330 acres of a beautiful resort that is tastefully lit. I can also say without hesitation, and much research, that you will not find another outdoor dining option that combines food quality and ambiance quite like this.
Beginning May 26th, Music Under the Stars returns to Bear Creek every Thursday through August 25th. This return brings back the area’s best outdoor dining and a great summer experience that I personally look forward to every year. Summer will fly by quickly, don’t miss your chance to experience the outdoor dining season!
