PA’s biggest ski resort with more than 1,000 vertical feet is about 40 minutes away. The snow making is top-notch. And in a rarity for many ski areas, the food and atmosphere at Slopeside Pub in the summit Lodge are great. Two of our favorites are the quesadillas and the blackened salmon Caesar salad.

Ok, it’s not close (1.25 hours away) and it’s not for everyone, but it’s one of the few ghost towns on the east coast. The underground mine fire has been burning for almost 60 years. If you do decide to go that way and want other things to see/do swing by the Pioneer Coal Mine in Ashland or Knoebels Grove Amusement Park in Elysburg. Admission to Knoebels is free, it uses tickets for ride admission. That way, if you just want to stroll through the park, take in the sights and have a bite to eat it isn’t too expensive.
