Route: 6 (portions) Wyoming County, near Tunkhannock
A few seconds into your drive, you'll see why National Geographic called it "one of America's most scenic drives." The picturesque view of the Susquehanna River and the Endless Mountains will leave you breathless. In addition to inviting restaurants and shops, the quaint town of Tunkhannock includes the historic Dietrich Theater, a 1936 movie house that is now a thriving two-screen theater and active cultural center.
You'll love the region's easy access to hiking and biking trails. Even just a leisurely walk through the woods will restore your spirit. When you get hungry, pull out your picnic basket and head for Riverside Park. While the kids enjoy the playground, you can watch birds and bask in the peace and quiet of the Endless Mountains.
