Southcentral PA Attractions

Visit the PA attractions in the south-central part of the state on a Pennsylvania getaway. This is definitely a must see stop on your travels through the state.

The Pennsylvania tourist attractions in Dutch country offer sites in Gettysburg the history buffs will enjoy.

This is one of our favorite areas of the state we like to visit a few times every year.

We love the battlefield and the history there. Each time we visit, we learn a little more.

This area also has a lot of nice boutiques, cafes and coffee shops to stop at after a day of sightseeing. You’ll love discovering a new coffee drink, picking out a unique keepsake in a quaint shop, and enjoying soup and a sandwich as you watch the people walk by.
