Once the airport shuttle service Wilkes-Barre lets you off in Pennsylvania, there are a ton of things to see and do. You can visit sites of historical interest, art museums, amusement parks, and more.
- Andy Warhol Museum
Pop artist Andy Warhol made a name for himself with still-life paintings of soup cans and innovative portraits of celebrities. The Andy Warhol Museum is located in Pittsburgh and has some of his most famous works on display.
- Presque Isle State Park
The northwest corner of Pennsylvania borders Lake Erie. While there is an actual island, Presque Isle State Park is actually on a nearby peninsula that forms a bay of the lake. A guided tour of the lighthouse on Presque Isle offers stunning views of the lake. The park itself is popular with people who like to fly kites because of its lake winds and open spaces, as well as swimmers, sunbathers, hikers, and other outdoor enthusiasts.
- Hershey Park
The town of Hershey, Pennsylvania, is the home of the famous candy bar as well as Hershey Park, an amusement park created originally for the benefit of chocolate factory workers but now open to all. Hershey Park is actually two attractions for the price of one, as the price of admission also provides access to the adjacent ZooAmerica, which features over 200 North American species. Hershey Park itself offers carnival games, roller coasters, and kiddie rides for a full day of family fun.
- Phipps Conservatory
Phipps Conservatory consists of 15 acres of botanical gardens and related facilities in Pittsburgh’s Schenley Park. While some exhibits are seasonal, others remain consistent all year round. Several permanent environments featuring plants from specific ecosystems, such as the tropical forest and desert, are found in the 14-room glasshouse.
Pennsylvania is home to several historical points of interest. These include Valley Forge, Gettysburg, and Independence National Historical Park, site of the signing of the Declaration of Independence and the drafting of the Constitution.
