A Travel Guide to
Unique Pennsylvania Attractions

The beautiful Monongahela Forrest Waterfalls in the Pocono Mountains unique view of the Allegheny Mountains


Many Pennsylvania Attractions are hidden deep in the Pennsylvania Mountains. Some attractions are actually referred to as Pennsylvania's best kept secrets. Once you travel down the many side roads into the Alleghenies you will see why most tourists never find these places.

I grew up in the Pennsylvania Mountains and have always enjoyed exploring the many mountain side roads and discovering unique Pennsylvania Attractions that only the local people know about. Over the years I have shared them with my family and friends and now I'm sharing them with you.

You will discover many Pennsylvania Attractions hidden deep in the forest high atop a mountain, while other attractions are located in valleys within communities celebrating annual events that can very easily get you sidetracked. No matter what Pennsylvania Attraction your family decides to explore you will quickly step back in time when life was simple and full of surprises.

Most of the attractions I recommend are either free or very inexpensive. Every Pennsylvania Attraction has an interesting history, many have grown into legends that have been passed down through generations.
