Don't get me wrong, downtown State College is filled with restaurants, bars, etc... But State College is bigger than that! Here are a variety of different places to visit while in State College, Pennsylvania!

URBN Flavourhaus is located right outside of State College in Bellefonte. This super cute Dine In/Drive through restaurant offers so many different types of foods and deserts. They offer a large variety of milkshakes, ice cream, burgers, coffee, sandwiches, and salads! (Food is super aesthetic for insta stories too...) URBN is a great place to go for a date with your boo or your bestie!

Do you want to go to Vermont but don't have the time? Tussey Mountain has fun for all seasons, not just winter! They provide activities like mini-golf, go-carts, and of course skiing, snowboarding, and tubing. They have 9 trails and 5 ski lifts in total. Not to mention the view of state college from the top is beautiful. They also provide snowboarding and skiing lessons!

Arboretum At Penn State

Arboretum Pavillion


The Arboretum at Penn State, created in 1999, is a great place to visit while your time here in State College. No matter what season, it's always a really pretty and unique place to visit. It's full of different flowers and plants. According to their website, "The Arboretum at Penn State strives to be a place of beauty and renewal, a venue for the arts, and a pathway to discovery and enrichment". I really recommend visiting the Arboretum, it's a great place to visit when you're bored. It is always a great place to take pictures!

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me?
