Region: Pennsylvania Wilds
The aptly named DuBois (meaning "the woods") is close to miles of forests, making this small town a haven for nature-lovers, hunters, hikers, and anybody seeking the quiet of the outdoors. But DuBois is also home to antiques, inns, country stores, and golf, making it a popular tourist destination. Restaurants and shopping abound. Nearby Driftwood is the ancestral home of a famous area resident - Tom Mix, Hollywood's "King of the Cowboys" in the silent era. The home of the Penn State DuBois campus, the town is accessible by DuBois Regional Airport in Falls Creek.
