Leaf Peepers: Upstate PA

When it comes to Pennsylvania’s beautiful landscapes, Upstate PA offers some of the best — especially during fall. Mountains and forests saturated with fiery seasonal colors frame the region and its tranquil communities, state parks, and bustling cities — like Scranton and Wilkes-Barre. Come take in autumn’s awe-inspiring show in Upstate PA.

Worlds End State Park

Talk about a sight to behold at Worlds End State Park. The 780-acrerugged and rustic park offers several vantage points to admire the autumn rainbow at its finest. Venture along any of the seven trails that cover 20 miles through the park, or take a short drive to Canyon Vista or High Knob Overlook to take in the picturesque scenery.

Eagles Mere

Even if you’ve never given vintage planes or cars a second thought, a visit to the Eagles Mere Air and Eagles Mere Auto Museums is a must on this trip. These eye-catching, fascinating time capsules of transportation history are only open for a short time each year — mid-May through mid-October, Saturdays, and Sundays. Want to see the aircrafts in action? If you stop by on a Sunday, you’ll be able to watch pilots fly the vintage planes as they take off at the museum’s private airport.

At Eagles Mere Museum, see why local residents are so proud of their picturesque village. The museum celebrates the town’s unique history of glass making, farming, hotels and cottages, a narrow-gauge railroad, and the formation of Eagles Mere Lake.

Twin Spruce Tourist Home B&B | Groff Log Cabin

After a long day, refuel with fresh, homestyle food at Mary Beth’s WestSide Deli — or try D&D Brew Works for a great fare paired with a local beer.

Put your feet up at the Twin Spruce Tourist Home B&B, a gorgeous 1885 Victorian home. Or, lose yourself in a Groff log cabin nestled in the woods of Sullivan County, in the Endless Mountains: cabins are fully furnished with a complete kitchen, and large deck.
