3.6.21 Exploring The Great Outdoors Throughout Pennsylvania


“PUTTING THE SPRING IN YOUR STEP AS WE EXPLORE THE GREAT OUTDOORS THROUGHOUT BEAUTIFUL PENNSYLVANIA”

We have it all in Pennsylvania – and just in time for warm weather getaways.

Pennsylvania is an outdoor recreation dream for travelers and has more rail trails than any other state in the United States – 2,125 miles to be exact – and to put that into perspective, California has 1,074 miles.

Since the onset of the pandemic, PA’s state parks have welcomed 1-million more visitors each month. Between March and September of 2020 visitation rose to 36-million up from 29-million in 2019.

Michael Chapaloney, Executive Director of Tourism for PA, will be my “Let’s Talk Travel with AAA” guest Saturday, March 6th from 11am-12pm on NewsRadio WHP580 – and he will give us an overview on several hiking and biking trails throughout Pennsylvania (with favorite tips on lodging and dining along the way) – including the Appalachian Trail (world’s longest hiking-only footpath); Gravel Trails (super popular for bikers, hikers, walkers, runners & cross-country skiers) and the Ghost Town Trail (voted 2020 Pennsylvania trail of the year).

With more than 86,000 miles of rivers, streams and creeks plus 121 free state parks (one of only five states in the U.S. where they are free) - you really can pursue your happiness in Pennsylvania!
