Columcille Megalith Park in Pennsylvania

July 18, 2020

What are the most unique parks in Pennsylvania?

Set off on a scenic hike at Abington Sculpture Park, a unique park in Pennsylvania. The trail only spans .65 of a mile, so it’s a pretty easy hike that’s bursting with unique artwork. The loop trail features several dozen art sculptures that are sure to inspire you and to make you think. For a truly unique experience, visit the park on the first day of winter (December 21). On that day, at exactly 12 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, the sunshine slivers through Winifred Lutz’s stone tower. It’s the only time of the year to do that, and it’s breathtaking to see.

What underrated places in Pennsylvania should I visit?

If you want to spend time outdoors, head over to Promised Land State Park, an underrated park that boasts two sandy beaches. Swim in one of the cool lakes, or go kayaking, canoeing, or paddleboating. The park also offers miles of hiking trails, picnic areas, and spots to spend the night in a cabin, in a tent, or by parking your RV.

Trough Creek State Park, another of the underrated places in Pennsylvania, is a cozy state park that boasts tons of fun. For example, you’ll definitely want to cross the suspension bridge, stop by Rainbow Falls, and snap photos of Balanced Rock.

What one-of-a-kind destinations can I visit in Pennsylvania?

You’ll find so many unique things to do in Pennsylvania you probably won’t know where to start exploring. (You might want to start a bucket list, so you don’t miss anything.) Wolf Sanctuary in Lititz, for example, is home to the only wolves you’ll see in Pennsylvania. You can go on a daytime tour or join a special moonlight tour to get a glimpse of the resident wolves.

You might not think of a grocery store as a one-of-a-kind destination. However, the Trader Joe’s in Media is definitely one of a kind. It sits in a former armory.
