    Smile PA: 611 between Rigelsville and Stroudsburg

    I just took this twisty, beautiful drive for the first time in my wagon. I had driven it before in my old college beaters, but never in my WRX and I kinda forgot how nice it was. I was heading north through upper Bucks County on 611. It got nice and twisty right as I entered into Northampton County. You're right along the Delaware for almost all of the ride. The canal sits right beween the road and the river. The views are great and worth bringing a camera for. There are a few scenic view stops, too. There are only a small handfull of traffic lights to deal with for this stretch, with the exception of the city of Easton. The twists and turns between towns aren't crazy, but are fun for a little "spirited" driving.

    Up there, there are towns so small that rely largely on state police to monitor the roads, so keep that in mind

    Bucks County is SUCH a nice area to live/visit. I have relatives that live there. There are some nice roads, just watch out for deer. Deer are everywhere...
    Hey baby, wanna go pick up some groceries?

    My plan is to buy an old stone home along the Delaware River when I retire. Maybe somewhere up near Upper Black Eddy. It is very nice in Upper Bucks County.

    Not that I would ever endorse such behavior on a road, but I was coming down 611 after leaving am encounter in Riegelsville and I was heading towards the lovely Hamlet of Plumsteadville, and came across a nice sloping 611 South worth going as fast as possible, should one want to do that. This section was surrounded by berms on both sides of the road. The length was close to a mile and a half if I recall correctly. Now keep in mind this is a just a 2 lane state road, but at certain times, say 5:30 AM (I know it's a little early), there is no person or sizable animal on the road. I've driven this road dozens of times for work, but I never really noticed it before. Please take this tidbit all you Philly, Bucks, Northampton and Montco drivers, and enjoy it. The road is ashpalt, smooth, and there are no hiding spots along it in which a Crown Victoria or similar sized vehicle could fit in. Mazel Tov.

    That sounds pretty awesome. I'm a chesco resident myself but I think I might need to take a little day trip north.
