Here Are The 10 Most Heart-Warmingly Beautiful Small Towns In Pennsylvania
I bet that you’re sick of me talking about all the biggest cities in Pennsylvania: Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Allentown, Erie, and the area of Lancaster. Sometimes we’ll throw in Hershey or Harrisburg. Today let’s focus on the places that go without as much recognition, but do just as much to make our state a marvelous place to visit and live. Here are the best small towns in the state of Pennsylvania.
If this list were a high school movie than Lititz would be the cool kid. This place has a ton of unique attractions and one-of-a-kind shops that make it like no other place on earth.
2. New Hope
Just a few thousand people live in New Hope, which is across the Delaware River from New Jersey. It is a popular spot for Broadway shows to be tested, and also is located six miles north of where George Washington historically crossed the Delaware.
3. Jim Thorpe
Jim Thorpe has been called the "Switzerland of America" because it is just so mountainous and charming. It is a popular destination for those who like sports such as white water rafting and kayaking.
Manayunk is located right outside of Philadelphia and contains the first canal that construction began on in the country. (Though it was never completed.) Today, the town is a popular destination for nightlife and shopping.
Located in Lehigh County, Emmaus was listed in Money Magazine's list of "100 Best Places To Live In The US."
Ligonier is best known for its proximity to Idlewild Park, one of the best amusement parks in the state. It's also known for its bandstand that takes up its central square.
Farmington might just be the smallest town on the list. It is near Fort Necessity and Fallingwater, so it's a popular and charming stop-through for visitors to those areas.
Located not far from Pittsburgh, Foxborg is both gorgeous and tiny.
York's nickname is the White Rose City. As the 11th biggest city in Pennsylvania, York is the largest small town on our list.
10. Grove City
Located about an hour away from Pittsburgh, Grove City is home to Grove City College. The town is also known for manufacturing locomotive engines.
