Great Destinations to Visit in Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania is a great year round destination for travelers in the Mid-Atlantic. We recently lived in Washington, DC for 4 years and enjoyed taking many trips to the Keystone State (nicknamed that for its essential role in the founding of the US). Philadelphia even served as the capital of the country between 1790 and 1800.

The Laurel Highlands makes for a great couples getaway with a wealth of year round outdoor recreation from golf in summer to skiing in winter. Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater, a UNESCO World Heritage Site attracts visitors from around the world. Historic sites and culinary delights abound in destinations like Philadelphia, Gettysburg and York.

Kids (and many adults like us) love the chocolate wonderland that is Hershey’s Chocolate World. Huntingdon County is home to Raystown Lake, the largest in Pennsylvania, and a popular spot for summer recreation. These Pennsylvania destinations are great for outdoor activities like golf, kayaking and skiing, history and mouth watering food and drinks!
