small towns to visit in Pennsylvania - explore in you new 2017 Chevrolet Suburban

Pennsylvania has some of the best tourist cities in America—Philly, Pittsburgh, the capital Harrisburg—but the small towns have a lot going for them to, especially during the summer. Filled with beautiful parks, street festivals, markets, and more, these towns are the perfect place to take a day trip.

One of the best small towns to visit in Pennsylvania during the summer is Mt. Gretna, a tiny town of just 200 residents where you can see the Mt. Gretna Outdoor Art Show and the Summer Craft Market. If antiques are more your thing, check out the Summer Antiques Market in Eagles Mere, along with their Annual Arts & Crafts Festival.

Renovo is another gorgeous spot, where you can go to the beach, hike, or check out the many activities in town. Outdoor lovers will also enjoy a trip to Hawley, where you can spend a day on a boat at Lake Wallenpaupeck or lounge by the water.

Check out Dushore in late August for their Founder’s Day festival, which makes the usually quiet town come alive. Finally, Ligonier is a beautiful historic town full of quaint shops and restaurants and an old-fashioned amusement park, and it’s the perfect place to go to feel transported back into the early 1900s.

From the staff at H&H Chevrolet, have a great trip and drive safe!
