Western Pennsylvania is a great glimpse into the mountain landscape the state is so known for, and one of the places you can best experience this is near State College. So named for being the home of Penn State’s main campus, it also acts as a gateway into the surrounding countryside, where many people go exploring all year round. Somewhere like this is not to be missed out on by anyone, so make sure you bring your best furry friend with you by renting a pet-friendly cabin for the duration of your trip. Start your adventure by going on light walks in the scenic Arboretum, before moving on to the Millbrook Marsh Nature Center. Here, trails are the perfect way to discover the area, where you can also catch sight of local wildlife.
