August 15, 2020

What are the best little known attractions in Pennsylvania?

You’ll find a ton of hidden gems in Pennsylvania, all waiting to be discovered. Spend a leisurely hour or so, for example, wandering through the Rose Garden in Allentown. In addition to beautiful roses, the garden features such fairy-tale features as shimmering ponds, flowing streams, and statues. If you’re a fan of art, you’ll definitely want to plan a visit to the Mattress Factory in Pittsburgh. The unique museum features room-sized installations, including 17 permanent exhibits and a number of temporary installations. Stop by Trundle Manor, too, a museum of the macabre that bills itself as a “tourist trap.” It’s definitely bucket list-worthy.

Which hikes in Pennsylvania are short and sweet?

Some of the short and sweet trails are also less crowded hiking spots in Pennsylvania if you visit at the right time. Raymondskill Creek Trail, for example, can get pretty busy later in the day. However, it’s one of those easy trails that you definitely want to check out. After all, it leads straight to the tallest waterfall in Pennsylvania. For a quiet trail that will lead you through an enchanted forest, head over to Nolde Forest Environmental Education Center, in Reading. Choose from several short, sweet, and quiet trails, including the 1.1-mile Watershed Trail.

Does Pennsylvania have any natural wonders?

For relaxing things to do in Pennsylvania, visit one of its many natural wonders. In fact, if you’re up for a fun and relaxing road trip, follow the road trip to all seven of Pennsylvania’s natural wonders. (There are more natural wonders in PA, of course.)
