One of Pennsylvania's main attractions is its excellent amusement parks. On Lake Erie, there is the famous Splash Lagoon.

Because it is an indoor venue, it can be enjoyed in every season, even when it is snowing outside. Other notable amusement parks include Conneaut Lake Park, Dutch Wonderland, Hershey Park, and Sandcastle Water Park. Pennsylvania is also home to some of the country's best museums. The Philadelphia Museum of Art is well known for its top quality exhibits. Pittsburg is famous for the Carnegie Museums, and Scranton is home to the unique Houdini Museum.

Seasons to Travel to Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania has a variable climate, depending on where in the state you are staying. Most of Pennsylvania enjoys a humid continental climate. Rain occurs throughout the year and heavy snowfall can occur in the winter months, especially in the far northwestern parts of the state. Philadelphia, because it is closer to the coast, benefits from a more subtropical climate. There really is no off season in which to visit Pennsylvania. Poconos resorts and Endless Mountain vacation rentals are a four-season destination, and visitors who enjoy snow sports will love the icy winter months when the state benefits from heavy snowfall. If you are wanting to explore the countryside, summertime would be a more ideal time to visit as getting around during this season is more convenient. It is advisable to listen to the weather reports when traveling as tornadoes frequently occur during the hot summer months. In the cities, the attractions of museums, shopping and entertainment are available all year round.
