Outdoor Fun

No matter the season, you can find outdoor fun all around Northeast Pennsylvania! During warmer months, experience fun on the water with rafting, kayaking, boating, and stand up paddle boarding. Get up close with animals at local farms and catch a game at the ballpark. Enjoy the deliciousness of area ice cream shops and the excitement of the variety of festivals and carnivals throughout the year. When the weather turns cold, race down the mountain on skis, a snowboard, or snow tube. Year-round hiking opportunities are available at local parks.
