Region: Pennsylvania Wilds
Galeton was a booming lumber town in the 1800s, sporting an opera house, a hospital, railroads, breweries, and (of course) taverns. Surrounded by forests, today the town attracts tourists, hunters, and fisherfolk who enjoy the abundant wildlife and lush scenery. The nearby Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania and Lyman Run State Park provide outdoor adventure for nature novices and experts alike. Every year, Galeton celebrates firefighters on Red Suspender Weekend, a festival of food, contests, and entertainment.
