11 Places In Pennsylvania You Need To Visit During Spring Break

11 Places In Pennsylvania You Need To Visit During Spring Break

Go on an adventure!


Make the most of your break by going out and experiencing all the beautiful things Pennsylvania has to offer! Many of us Pennsylvanians complain about the area being "boring", but there are so many amazing adventures to take, and these are just a few:

1. Penn’s Cave and Wildlife Park

An all-water limestone cavern that can be experienced by a boat ride straight through the cave! Did I mention there's cute animals in the Wildlife Park at the end?

2. Centralia

Due to the result of a mine-fire, Centralia is an almost entirely abandoned town with still-burning fires beneath its art covered streets. Visit and showcase your own art, or just explore this so called "ghost town."

3. Allentown Rose Gardens

Nothing like an old-fashioned garden straight out of Alice and Wonderland complete with beautiful flowers and ponds to get you in the spring mood!

4. Fonthill Concrete Castle

Who knew Pennsylvania had its very own castle!? Even better yet, you can get a tour of this beautiful estate. (Great for Instagram pictures by the way)

5. Presque Isle

What better way to take a break than to visit the shore? A so-called "migrating peninsula" now located in Erie, PA. Its beautiful shoreline and waters are perfect for a beach trip, boating excursion or fishing. There are also hiking and biking opportunities.

6. Fallingwater

Look, we all need to de-stress from classes, so, what better way to do that than see one of the most peaceful areas in Pennsylvania? This house on a waterfall is open to the public!

7. Longwood Gardens

Not only is this a beautiful string of gardens, but it also incorporates the arts with amazing performances and events.

8. Cherry Springs State Park

This state park is known to have the darkest skies because of its remoteness, which makes it absolutely stunning for star gazing. (*cough* cute date idea boys *cough*)

9. "Grand Canyon" of Pennsylvania

Hey, if you can't make it out to the real thing, this is a beautiful alternative. This faux grand canyon is located in Tioga State Forest.

10. Laurel Caverns

Become a true spelunker and walk through the largest cavern in Pennsylvania!

11. Strasburg

A town located in Lancaster, PA that is often referred to as the "Train Town USA." Whether you go on a train ride or explore the local shops, this town is gorgeous! (And really cute for candids!)

So no more excuses! Get up, stop watching Netflix and have an adventure with your best friends!

Everyone remembers the first time they went to one of the Disney parks. Spinning in teacups and having Goofy wrap his arms around my 8-year-old self were some of my fondest childhood memories, and I'm surely not alone in that.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?
