Ghost town tourism needs to capitalize on its popularity

Mr. Holmes, author of Vanishing Towns: Tasmania’s Ghost Towns and Settlements, said that the state was ideally positioned to capitalize on the trend because of the hundreds of old communities scattered around the state.

Ghost Towning

I was hooked on ghost-town photography the instant I viewed my pal’s photographs of Belmont, Nevada—the crumbling old buildings, abandoned mining equipment, dilapidated fire truck, crumbling courthouse, and all manner of detritus scattered through the site. 529 more words

I would love to visit a so called “ghost town.” Not to search for paranormal events because I have my own theories on those but to see how people once lived. 158 more words

啤酒,煤矿, 鬼城,和薰衣草

四个基本没有联系的词,为什么会出现在一起?因为有四个跟这些词相关的景点都在Pottsville, PA. 这个既不是国际大都市,又不是历史文化名城的地方,我敢肯定,95%的美国人都没有听说过。不过,对我来说,这里是PA survival trips中不可或缺的一站。为什么?

最老的啤酒厂

大家知道美国最老的啤酒厂是哪家么?你们知道他们来自哪个州么?哈哈,爱喝啤酒的小伙伴们应该已经知道了,美国最古老的啤酒厂,就是来自我们PA的Yuengling!

德国酿酒师David Gottlieb Jüngling 1829年移民美国,在1829年创建了Yuengling的前身 Eagle Brewery。这就是为啥Yuengling的标志是鹰的原因。1873年,DG的儿子加入父亲的酿酒行业,Eagle就改名叫 D.G. Yunegling & Son了。Yuengling就是他家的姓,德语意为Young people。

在美国禁酒期间,Yuengling开始了自己的冰激凌事业。至今在宾州得拉华的超市里面,都能买到他家的冰激凌。

禁酒期间,Yuengling不是完全不出售啤酒哦~ Porter(啤酒的一种)当时在美国,居然是处方药!感觉药效跟安眠药差不多。

Yuengling是家族企业,但是并不是直接交给自己的后代的。想要继承Yuengling,每代继承人都会用于当时与Yuengling市场价相同的价钱从父辈手里买下公司! 他家啤酒这么火,想必最近一代的继承人压力会很大哦~

密西西比河西边的大伙儿们,很遗憾,你们喝不到Yuengling。因为产量有限,现在Yuengling 只能在密西西比河东边买到。 78 more words
