Best Pennsylvania Towns to Visit in the Summer

Pennsylvania countryside

Pennsylvania is one of the oldest states in the country, which means there are tons of historic small towns and tiny cultural hubs that are perfect for taking a daytrip to. Here are some of the best Pennsylvania towns to visit in the summer.

One place you can learn a lot of local history is Ligonier, a quaint little town with lots of shops and restaurants as well as the old-fashioned water park SoakZone and, of course, Fort Ligonier, a British fortification from the French and Indian War.

If you’re more an outdoorsy type, check out Renovo, which is home to a gorgeous beach on the Alvin Bush Dam, plus scenic trails like the Donut Hole Trail and the Chuck Keiper Trail. Parker is another great place to enjoy the outdoors thanks to its location on the Allegheny River, where you can go canoeing and kayaking.

If you’re looking for festivals to enjoy, check out the Outdoor Art Show and Summer Craft Market in Mt. Gretna, the Summer Antiques Market and the Annual Arts & Crafts Festival in Eagles Mere, or the Founder’s Day festival in Dushore.
