Upstate PA

UpstatePA provides some of the most dramatic scenery and landscapes in Pennsylvania. These mountainous areas with forests and steep peaks have become home to tranquil communities and state parks with unmatched natural beauty. Drive around and you'll find bustling towns like Scranton and Wilkes-Barre with quaint main streets and old steel mills that have sprung up into museums. Take advantage of the slow-moving Delaware River with a swim, canoe or inner tube ride, or swing by the largest environmental education center in the Western Hemisphere, the Pocono Environmental Educational Center. Travel the Governor Casey Byway (Route 6) for a bird's-eye view of the majestic mountaintops and the historic Lackawanna River Valley. Along scenic Route 6 you'll find the Endless Mountains region and Lake Wallenpaupack. Both are must-sees for any nature lover. And since nothing complements a relaxing journey better than a tall pint of beer, the Yuengling Brewery Tour in Pottsville will guide you through America's oldest brewery. That's enough activity to earn you a well-deserved night of rest.
