Pennsylvania ‘Must-Visit’ Vacation Spot is Close to Home
Pennsylvania has so much rich history and plenty of fantastic spots to visit during the busy travel season. As it turns out, one Pennsylvania “must-visit” vacation spot is very close to the Philadelphia area. Even if you live in a different part of the state, read on, because I’ll include more travel options, too.
VisitPA.com has put together a list of the “must-visit” place in Pennsylvania for 2023. “A new year calls for new adventures throughout the Keystone State!” they state in the article. “We asked Happy Travelers what hot spots and must-see places are on their #PABucketList for the upcoming year.” So, the list is actually from people who visited these spots.
Taking the No. 1 spot is Punxsutawney Phil’s Prognostication at Gobbler’s Knob in Punxsutawney. I totally wouldn’t have thought of that as a vacation destination, but it’s a popular destination. “Visit the site where, every year in early February, the country’s most beloved rodent, Punxsutawney Phil, makes his annual prognostication,” they state in the article. “Watch and dance along to performances on center stage, keep warm with hot beverages, and witness as the legendary Phil declares six more weeks of winter or the start of an early spring.”

Since that area is pretty far from Philadelphia, what’s a closer spot? Coming in at No. 4 is the idea to “Shop ’til you drop in the quaint Peddler’s Village” in Lahaska, which is about 55 minutes away. The village offers 65 quaint shops and six restaurants on 42 acres of landscaped gardens and brick pathways. If you’re wondering about the rest of the list, coming in at No. 3 is “reaching the peak of 1,000 steps” in Mapleton. No. 2 is to “walk amongst the clouds at Kinzua State Park and Sky Walk Mt. Jewett.” All of these places sound great. Find the full list of the best Pennsylvania must-visit places here.
