Fun Summer Activities in Pennsylvania
Summers are great: warmer and longer days mean more time to enjoy the outdoors. If you're lucky enough to be in Pennsylvania during summertime, then you're in for endless summer activities. Here are a few ideas to get you started!
Experience the Outdoors at Pennsylvania Wilds
For many locals, summers in Pennsylvania must include a trip to Pennsylvania Wilds™. The two-million-acre region is divided into twelve counties, each with its own attractions and charm. Explore the lush forests, fish the streams, and take in the views from the mountain tops.
Let Loose at an Amusement Park
Pennsylvania has a plethora of amusement and water parks, ranging from huge with every ride imaginable to small scale operations, boasting no lines. Check out a park nearby and feel free to live like a kid for the day.
Be Patriotic in Philadelphia
For the most patriotic visitors, a trip to Philadelphia on our country's birthday should be at the top of the list of things to do this summer. Tour the grounds our forefathers walked and learn about the beginnings of our nation. Visiting during the week of July 4th also means experiencing the Wawa Welcome America event, a week-long, family-friendly celebration leading up to a spectacular fireworks display on Independence Day.
Get Romantic at Longwood Gardens
Not only are Longwood Gardens a beautiful, serene place during the day, but their Illuminated Fountain Performances are perfect for summer date nights. The gardens feature numerous outdoor displays that include a Main Fountain Garden, Conservatory, and smaller outdoor installments. Take a tour!
Step Back in Time
Looking to unplug? Immerse yourself in a simpler time at the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire! The event begins on August 5 and continues every weekend until early fall. Check out the period costumed characters, lively music, and artisan goods. Enjoy a turkey leg and tall glass of mead while watching one of over 90 stage shows!
