Pennsylvania’s Lancaster county is known as Amish country.

4. Barn on Stoney Hollow
Northeastern Pennsylvania’s spectacular Pocono Mountains offer the best of the great outdoors. Go skiing, tubing or sledding at one of the many world-class ski resorts, or hike to waterfalls and enjoy white-water rafting on the Delaware River in spring and summer. For the less adventurous, there are indoor waterparks and mega shopping malls, not to mention multiple casinos.
An excellent base for any Pocono adventure is the Barn on Stoney Hollow, a converted barn on a 12-acre egg farm right in the middle of the mountains. This cozy nest sleeps up to four guests from $250 a night, and it’s only 30 minutes from the popular Camelback, Jack Frost, and Big Boulder ski resorts.

More wilderness adventures await in Pennsylvania’s Allegheny National Forest. Sprawling across more than 500,000 acres, it’s all about hiking, biking, horseback riding and cross-country skiing.

Up to six guests can stay from $140 a night.
6. Wayne’s B&B Inn
For an in-depth investigation of American history, there’s no place like Valley Forge. After all, this is where former President George Washington and the Continental Army spent the winter of 1777 to 1778! Tour the encampment to see Washington’s headquarters, the United States National Memorial Arch and the Artillery Park. In summer, you can go biking, hiking and horseback riding along the trails.

A great deal of America’s revolutionary history was written in Pennsylvania’s biggest city: Philadelphia. Where else can you find iconic sights such as the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, where the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were both signed? Beyond that, Philly has a great deal to offer the whole family. Kids love the Please Touch Museum and Philadelphia Zoo, while adults can tuck into classic Philly cheese steaks at the classy restaurants and chic bars around Rittenhouse Square. Boutiques and galleries abound, including the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the scene of Sylvester Stallone’s immortal run in Rocky.
