Luzerne County PA Tourist Attractions Feature
Open Country and Lots to Do

Welcome to Luzerne County nestled in the foothills and valleys of the Pocono Mountains. Northeast PA is recognized as a top outdoor recreation area in every season. Ride the rapids rafting down the Lehigh River and bike the scenic D & L Trail, just one of the countless trails winding through the County. Explore the scenery from the water as you kayak one of our many lakes or rent a kayak for an excursion on the Susquehanna River.   Catch the sunset at Frances Slocum State Park, then wake up early for a hike at Ricketts Glen State Park with 22 named waterfalls.

Visit in the fall when Mother Nature dazzles with brilliant red, orange and yellow foliage! Experience the best of autumn at Roba Family Farms, with a pumpkin patch, fire pits, games, mazes and more!

Take the kids rock climbing at the Wilkes-Barre Rock Climbing and then jump in on the fun at Skyzone. A must do is nearby Knoebels, America’s largest free-admission amusement park, or visit Claws ‘N’ Paws Wild Animal Park to get close to all kinds of critters and creatures. Visit the Lands at Hillside Farms, tour the dairy barns, pet the animals, shop for local crafts and other products then treat yourself to delicious homemade ice-cream. Cold weather opens up all new activities, ski, tube or snowboard at Montage Mountain Resort.

The area’s beautiful scenery is the perfect backdrop of a game of golf. Northeast PA offers golfers challenging, uncrowded courses at a tremendous value. Golf and Stay Getaway Packages available. Plus, as the home of the Wilkes-Barre/ Scranton Penguins hockey team, affiliate of the Pittsburgh Penguins, and of the Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre RailRiders, Triple-A affiliate of the New York Yankees, Northeast Pennsylvania has something for every sports lover!

History abounds in Northeast PA. Go back in time with a walk through Eckley Miners’ Village which looks much like it did more than 100 years ago when coal miners and their families called it home. Steamtown National Historic Site presents the history of steam railroading and the people who made it possible and then go down in history at the Lackawanna Coal Mine Tour, 300 feet below the earth’s surface!
