What is the most scenic state park in Pennsylvania?

Pinpointing the most scenic places in Pennsylvania really comes down to personal taste. However, PA is home to 121 beautiful state parks, some of which are sorely underappreciated. Poe Valley State Park, a tiny park surrounded by the larger Bald Eagle State Park, features a picturesque sandy beach and is popular with hikers. For some of the most scenic views in the state, stop by Laurel Hill State Park, home to a sandy beach, hiking trails, and plenty of lush greenery. Salt Springs State Park is an ideal destination all year around, but its waterfalls are particularly pretty when blanked in snow.

Does Pennsylvania have any natural wonders?

Some of the best Pennsylvania attractions are its natural wonders. (We’ve got a ton of man-made wonders, too.) For some of the best views in the state, visit Mount Davis, the highest point in Pennsylvania. Coudersport Ice Mine is a must visit during the summer months. Yep, that’s when the ice mine is frozen. Instead of melting during the summer, the ice melts in the winter at the ice mine. Penn’s Cave is the only all-water cave in the United States, making it a true natural wonder. Climb aboard a boat tour of the unique cave then check out the wildlife park above ground.

What are the most beautiful places in Pennsylvania?

If you’re looking for places to visit in Pennsylvania, you can’t go wrong with checking out some of PA’s most beautiful destinations. Hyner View State Park, for example, is known for its spellbinding views of the West Susquehanna River. If you’re a daredevil, you can even go hang gliding at the park. Erie Bluffs State Park boasts sensational views of the shimmering lake water. Ricketts Glen State Park lays claim to 21 named waterfalls that you can see along one trail (Falls Trail), and Cherry Springs State Park is home to some of the darkest skies on the eastern seaboard. It’s perfect for stargazing.
