Fairy tales don’t always mean stories about princes and princesses, one of whom is usually in distress. Sometimes we get that fairy tale vibe from the landscape around us – the vibrant green of the trees that hug a lone camping tent, pastel sunrises and sunsets, and a sinking sun behind a shimmering blue lake. If that sounds like your definition of a fairy tale, plan a getaway at Bear Run Campground near Pittsburgh.
