Pennsylvania is certainly a gorgeous state with a great variety of terrain: mountains, hills, fields, cities, anything you could imagine. (Except maybe desert. We do not have deserts.) Pretty much anywhere you go in our state, you’ll find something cool to photograph.. But I thought I’d compile some of the best photography locations, just for your convenience.
1. The Pagoda in Reading
If you want a unique photo opportunity, then Reading may be your destination. Originally built in the early 1900s as the centerpiece of a resort, today it stands as a small cafe and gift shop that overlooks the city.
2. The Rose Gardens in Allentown
If you're in Eastern PA and have a prom and/or wedding and/or First Holy Communion to attend... You're heading to the Rose Gardens for pictures. No questions asked.
3. Lockridge Park, Alburtis
The abandoned architecture at Lockridge provides an austere, dramatic backdrop for your photographs.
4. The Duquesne Incline in Pittsburgh
This is the best photography spot in the state of Pennsylvania. That's not my opinion... It's fact.
5. Jim Thorpe
It might not come as a surprise that the place colloquially known as the "Switzerland of Pennsylvania" is also exceedingly photogenic.
6. Fallingwater in Fayette
Fallingwater is one of the greatest modern architectural wonders in the world, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. It is by far one of the coolest buildings in Pennsylvania and perfect for photography.
7. LOVE Park in Philadelphia
This is probably the most popular spot in the state for selfies. Love is all you need... Some take that more literally than others.
8. The Cathedral of Learning & Heinz Chapel in Pittsburgh
The striking gothic architecture of the Heinz Chapel and the Cathedral of Learning (which is the tallest academic building in the world--) will impress anyone you show your pictures to... Whether or not you actually know what you're doing with a camera.
9. Bake Oven Knob in the Lehigh Valley
Located near Hawk Mountain, Bake Oven Knob offers a flawless vista... Perfect to practice your hand at landscape photography.
10. Ricketts Glen in Fairmont
The numerous waterfalls at Ricketts Glen make ideal scenery for gorgeous nature photographs.
