Valleys of the Susquehanna

The sweet aroma of dew fills the air in this happy, green valley. It's the scent of Central Pennsylvania's outdoor recreational playground and it's what draws so many outdoor enthusiasts to this area every year. In the Valleys of Susquehanna, you'll see nothing but mile after mile of rolling hills and dreamy white clouds. For the true nature enthusiast, this region boasts more than six state parks, such as the Milton State Park (with miles of hiking trails and picnic facilities) and Ricketts Glen State Park where you'll find diverse wildlife. At Knoebels Amusement Resort in Danville you'll get a quick adrenaline rush on their roller coasters and the famous Grand Carousel. Home to a wealth of artists working in both contemporary and traditional styles, the Artisan Trail - Art Thrives on 45 will take you along the historic architecture, quaint shops and provide a glimpse of Pennsylvania life before the advent of the superhighway. Go back a century or two and visit The Joseph Priestley House to learn about the world-changing legacy this controversial figure left behind. Take a stroll in charming downtown historic Lewisburg for great restaurants and galleries and catch a movie in an original Art Deco movie palace. Take the Historic Walking Tour in Milton to learn the history behind the murals painted on the exteriors of its buildings. And now that you're loaded with great pictures and awesome stories, get some rest at a B&B or comfy hotel.
