we took a trip up the Schuylkill River Trail to visit Manayunk + learn more about how the neighborhood continues to redefine itself. With the help of new trails, shops + attitude, Manayunk has quickly become the go-to spot for those looking to stay active. Manayunk Development Corporation (MDC) Director of Marketing + Events (and Manayunk resident), Caitlin Maloney, along with Project Director of the Schuylkill Project, Kay Sykora, walked us through some of the recent changes in the community's trail system + overall vibe.
Our friends at Trail Creek Outfitters are more than just retailers for your outdoor needs. Consider it a community driven store with top-notch products and a host of events throughout the year that benefit various local charities. Co-founder, Ed Camelli (pictured left) talks us through their 33-year history, the importance of community involvement + how having a supportive, knowledgeable staff alongside the best quality merchandise sets them apart from the big guys and online retailers.
