Summer is Beautiful at the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon


Pennsylvania’s Grand Canyon, a 47-mile long gorge is a great place to beat the summer heat.  Hiking, biking, kayaking, canoeing, or relaxing are just a few of the activities you can experience.

Take a guided horse-drawn covered wagon ride through the gorge where you can watch wildlife and hear about the history of the gorge.  Padded seats and rubber tires make your ride a comfortable one. 

A scenic, climate-controlled train excursion is always a nice way to relax in comfort.  Add a meal, and the dinner train is a great option.

Our lakes offer great ways to cool down with water sports like swimming, fishing, or boating.  Or visit an ice mine, a natural wonder that forms ice during the summer months.

At night, the stars come out to play.  The darkest skies east of the Mississippi allow you to view the Milky Way and the night sky unlike any other place in the Eastern United States.  So, bring a blanket, and hang out with the stars. 

Add in small town charm, shopping, dining, locally produced products, and you have a truly memorable getaway for couples, families and friends.
