Things to do in Pennsylvania

From characteristic must-see attractions to local hot spots, you won’t be left wondering what to do in Pennsylvania. There’s plenty to do whether you’re there for a romantic weekend getaway or a family trip. Sports fans will especially appreciate the state. There are plenty of passionate fans of hometown favorites like the Philadelphia Phillies and Pittsburgh Pirates (baseball), the Philadelphia Eagles and Pittsburgh Steelers (football), and the Philadelphia Flyers and Pittsburgh Penguins (hockey). Seeing one of their games or matches is one of the more popular things to do in Pennsylvania.

Hershey Park is a great choice for families. The theme park offers more than 50 rides and attractions for kids of all ages, even the Hersey’s miniatures. Whether it’s the Comet Coaster, Old Tyme Photo Shop or boardwalk, there’s something everyone will enjoy. Aaron and Jessica’s Amish Buggy Rides is a local favorite in Lancaster. The tour takes you through covered bridges of the Dutch-German countryside and a visit through working, non-commercial farms.
