Visiting the Laurel Highlands region is an extraordinary way to enjoy the raw beauty of Pennsylvania, especially if you relish exploring mother nature. Ohiopyle State Park is an ultimate outdoor playground with some of the state’s best white water rafting and kayaking.
And after taking a trip down the river and a hike on the rugged trails in the park, hop on a bike to explore the Great Allegheny Passage.
Each different experience in the Laurel Highlands, from your drives on the winding western Pennsylvania roads to meals in the cafes of the tiny towns that dot the region, is surrounded by dense forests and mountains.
Your time here will be filled with sensory immersion into the scenic landscape that draws thousands of people here each year. Be sure also to visit Fallingwater, the stunning Frank Lloyd Wright home designed to take advantage of the region’s hypnotic beauty.
Suppose you stay at the Nemacolin Woodlands Resort during your visit. In that case, you can indulge in a luxury resort and spa and take advantage of the dozens of outdoor recreation options on-site, from ziplining to off-road driving.
