Exploring Pennsylvania: The best views in the state

PennLive writer Marcus Schneck recently reported on Pennsylvania’s Best Views: 13 destinations that need to be seen to be believed.

The article has a few spots you may have guessed, but others might not be places on your list to visit … yet.

For those of us in western Pennsylvania, the view from atop Mount Washington in Pittsburgh is a given. For my friends and I, a trip to Pittsburgh isn’t a trip to Pittsburgh unless we ride the Duquesne Incline to the mountain’s top and see what I consider to be one of the most breathtaking views in the country. I was sure to make sure my parents saw the view on one of their visits in 2012:


Much to my dismay, I haven’t actually visited any of the other places listed by Schneck.

Among those I’d like to see ASAP are:

1. The Pennsylvania Grand Canyon
2. The Presque Isle Shoreline
3. Loyalsock Canyon Vista at Worlds End State Park

Options one and three both look like they’re the perfect place to visit this fall, with views like this one found on Flickr:



Who’s ready for some adventures?
