The airport has regular flights by US Airways, United, Delta, Continental and Northwest Airlines with ever increasing flights available. Excellent road links make this an ideal driving destination with I-81 making the "Endless Mountains," as they are known, easily accessible.

Countless secluded Northeastern Mountains vacation rentals are the perfect honeymoon hideaways. They are secluded retreats with plenty of opportunity for romance, such as a hot air balloon flight over the mountains with perhaps a glass of champagne or two! Perhaps pop the question during a romantic horse-drawn carriage ride! But don’t think you need to be newlyweds to enjoy this "get away from it all" environment! There is endless fun to be had here too!
