Pennsylvania Cities and Regions

Philadelphia

Known as “The City of Brotherly Love,” the spirit of 1776 prevails on the cobblestone streets of a city that is practically eponymous with America’s independence, The Liberty Bell, and Ben Franklin. Run up the Art Museum steps like Rocky Balboa, chomp on cheese steaks (with whiz and onions), and check out the lively Old City nightlife scene. See our Philadelphia Travel Guide

Pittsburgh

Three rivers meet at this muscle-flexing, steel-producing city in Western Pennsylvania. Hometown of Jimmy Stewert, Andy Warhol, and August Wilson, modern Pittsburgh enjoys an alluring post-industrial cultural presence. Ride the Duquesne Incline to the top of the Allegany Mountains for a breathtaking view of the city and three rivers, get a dose of pop-art in the Warhol Museum, and visit Frank Lloyd Wright’s famed “Falling Water” home, an marvel of architectural design built over a 30 foot waterfall. See our Pittsburgh Travel Guide

Bucks County

Immediately north of Philadelphia and across the Delaware River from New Jersey, rustic Bucks County is a quaint countryside retreat known for charming bed and breakfasts and country inns, not to mention covered bridges, serene vineyards, and beautiful colonial estates. Spend an afternoon browsing the shops and art galleries of New Hope, Doylestown, and Yardley or visit nearby Valley Forge, the former site of George Washington’s Revolutionary War encampment. See our Bucks County Travel Guide.

The Poconos

Rugged mountains, tranquil forests, and plentiful fresh air have made the Pocono Mountains in northeastern Pennsylvania a popular getaway for families and honeymooners for over half a century. The Delaware Water Gap (a national park) and over 150 secluded lakes make this former epicenter of coal mining an excellent destination for summer water sports, as well as hiking, camping, golfing, skiing, and camping.

Central Pennsylvania Dutch Country

Central Pennsylvania’s main attractions – Amish Lancaster County, historic Gettysburg, and Hershey – are close enough to one another to make it possible to do all three in a weekend. See the Amish at work in the hand-tilled fields that haven’t changed much since they settled the land in the 1700s, get your chocolate fix in Hershey, home of the chocolate company, and wander the hallowed grounds of the Gettysburg Battlefield, site of one of the bloodiest battles of the Civil War.

Great Lakes Region

Lake Erie borders the Northwestern tip of Pennsylvania. Summertime brings flocks of visitors who come to unwind in lakeside cottages, idle on the sandy beaches, and enjoy the legendary salmon, steelhead, and walleye fishing.

Seven Springs

Only an hour from Pittsburgh, this top-rated ski area offers a solid assortment of recently revamped runs in addition to winter activities like tubing and sleigh riding – not to mention standout service and resort dining. See our Seven Springs Travel Guide.
