Happy Valley boasts bountiful outdoor recreation; beautiful gardens and museums, interesting history and architecture, a thriving craft beverage scene, and a variety of restaurants and farm-to-fork dining options that appeal to individuals and families. Part of the fun of discovering all that Happy Valley has to offer is exploring the communities of State College, Bellefonte, Philipsburg, Boalsburg and Millheim, each having their own unique vibe and each home to hidden gems worth checking out.

She likes capturing photos of Happy Valley's beautiful scenery, and of discoveries made while going off the beaten path to explore, particularly old homes, barns and churches. More than likely, Lesley's adventures and photos will find their way to the Dispatch!
