Don’t let State College’s name mislead you: this thriving Pennsylvania college town is packed with more than students.
The wide-ranging activities near our State College hotels include learning about thousands of bugs at the Frost Entomological Museum, appreciating the treasures at Palmer Museum of Arts, and examining unusual farm and household items at the Pasto Agricultural Museum. History buffs will want to tour the Pennsylvania Military Museum and get an idea of frontier life during the American Revolution at Fort Roberdeau.
Enjoy both sports and panoramic views with a lesson at Keystone Gliderport, skiing or snowboarding at Tussey Mountain, or on a motorboat tour through Penn’s cave. Golfers can tee it up at Penn State University’s courses, or try their hand at Skilliards (a cross between billiards and miniature golf) at Millhiem, just a short distance from our hotels in State College.
During your stay at our State College hotels, you might also head to Belleville for traditional Pennsylvania and Pennsylvania Dutch fare at A.J. Peachey & Sons, or stroll, shop and sample Pennsylvania wines in historic Boalsburg, the birthplace of Memorial Day. Another option is to make an hour-long drive from our accommodations in State College to Woolrich for outlet deals on clothing.
