Day Trips In Pennsylvania

What are some of the best day trips in Pennsylvania?

There’s only one thing that matches the magic of a road trip in Pennsylvania, and that’s a day trip in Pennsylvania. Here are a few of the best day trips in Pennsylvania.

  • The Lehigh Valley Zoo in Schnecksville is picture-perfect all year-round, and you can get an up-close look at some of its most popular residents, including the otters, penguins, and giraffes.
  • Look for fairy houses dotted along the walking paths at Briar Bush Nature Center in Abington. It is also home to trails, a museum, and a spider house.
  • Penn’s Cave in Centre Hall is the only all-water cave in Pennsylvania and the United States. Go on a guided boat tour before exploring aboveground on an off-road Jeep tour or a wildlife tour.
  • See a natural phenomenon at Coudersport Ice Mine in Coudersport. The seasonal attraction offers a glimpse at the mine that’s icy in the summer. (The ice melts during the winter.)
  • Seven Tubs Natural Area in Wilkes-Barre is a natural wonder that’s brimming with – you guessed it – natural tubs and some small waterfalls. It’s a pretty destination all year-round. Swimming is not allowed in the tubs.
