Fall is an amazing time to be in the lovely state of Pennsylvania. There are the beautifully colored leaves to admire, so many fun outdoor activities to get involved in, scenic hikes, bike rides, farm events, hayrides, mountain sports, apple orchards, pumpkin patches, corn mazes, themed festivals, haunted houses, browse a farm store for caramel apples and apple cider doughnuts, and so much more.
If you did not bring your own vehicle, our Philadelphia car service or Lancaster PA limo service are examples of how you can have a professional chauffeur drive you and your family to any Pennsylvania points of interest. That is a safe, comfortable, and luxurious way to have a stress-free trip and be able to completely enjoy memorable experiences.
Here are some top picks for fun Fall activities:
Fall Foliage at Big Pocono State Park
The Poconos Mountains is an ideal destination for viewing the changing foliage colors. Online you can find Fall Foliage Forecasts published by local groups to determine where the best “leaf peeping” areas are during the time that you will visit. Big Pocono State Park has 1,306 acres of terrain and scenic views of three states and is a very popular spot with 8.5 miles of trails for mountain biking, hiking, horseback riding, hunting, and picnicking.
This has become one of the fastest-growing outdoor activities that present fun for all ages and is a combination of target practice and a game of tag. Archers use bows and foam-tipped arrows to make sure that nobody gets hurt, and it is far less messy than paintball. At the Blue Mountain Resort in the Poconos, this is played outside on top of Pennsylvania’s highest vertical.
High Ropes Course and Ziplines
At the Summit Aerial Park at the Blue Mountain Resort, this is a 46-element high ropes course and 500 feet of a thrilling zip line adventure with four levels of difficulty and dozens of challenging elements.
Hike Through Allegheny National Forest
The Kinzua Valley Trail extends approximately seven miles. The North Country National Scenic Trail is 96.3 miles, is well marked with signs, and is perfect for a backpacking trip. If you’re not up for a hike, be driven along the National Longhouse Scenic Byway, which is a 27-mile loop traveling through the forest and with excellent overlooks for taking spectacular photography shots.
Liberty Bell Center and Independence Hall
When in Philadelphia, an iconic landmark is the Liberty Bell, which was originally used to call the leaders of the town to meetings. However, it was later adopted as a symbol of freedom. There is no charge to visit the bell at the Independence National Historical Park. Also, see the World Heritage Independence Hall where the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence were signed.
Philadelphia is where one of America’s favorite traditional foods originated, the Philly cheesesteak, which can be found in restaurants throughout the city. Each of the city’s neighborhoods offers something a little different. Explore to sample Polish supermarkets, Italian restaurants, micro-brew bars, and much more.
