Today’s Spotlight: Pennsylvania Proud

Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Welcome to the new edition of the OTC Blog.

Have you ever visited the Keystone State? Have you seen the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia, watched a Pittsburgh Steelers football game or toured the Pennsylvania State Capital Complex in Harrisburg?

Today Rachel and I want to share some of the more scenic spots in PA.

  1. Everyone knows of the Great Lakes, but few get to admire them in person. Lake Erie is the tenth largest lake in the world and the only Great Lake to border Pennsylvania.

  2. Pine Creek Gorge is sometimes called the Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania, and I bet you can guess why.

  3. Gettysburg National Military Park honors the soldiers who fought in the Battle of Gettysburg during the Civil War. The expanse of candles lit in memory will send chills down your spine.

  4. The Poconos attracts more tourists than any other outdoor destination in Pennsylvania for its extensive hiking trails, white water rafting, and ski slopes.

  5. Bushkill Falls, also known as the Niagara of Pennsylvania, is an Eastern Pennsylvania series of eight waterfalls.

  6. Hershey, PA, is a place of thrilling attractions, exciting live concerts, premier dining, breathtaking venues, relaxing getaways, and deliciously sweet Hershey's chocolate. It's also a place with a proud history and legacy of exceptional service and generous philanthropy installed by the man who built two great companies and began a dream alive and thriving today in Hershey, The Sweetest Place On Earth.

  7. Eight Lakes- Potter and Tioga Counties are home to eight lakes, including Tioga, Hammond, Cowanesque, Hills Creek Lake, Hamilton, Lyman Run, Nessmuk, and Beechwood.

  8. Rickets Glenn State Park- Throughout 13,193 acres, you'll encounter 26 hiking trails, ranging from less than one mile to just over seven, and 22 waterfalls.

  9. Amish Country- The Pennsylvania Amish of Lancaster County is America's oldest Amish settlement, where thousands still live a centuries-old "Plain" lifestyle.

  10. The Delaware Water Gap- One of the most beautiful areas of the Pocono Mountains, the middle section of the Delaware River or the Delaware Water Gap runs across the Pennsylvania-New Jersey border.

Have you visited any of these breathtaking locations?

We thank you for joining our adventure on behalf of Rachel and me. Until next time, fare thee well, friends.
