Extensive anthracite coal, brick, stone, and silk interests had led to a rapid increase in the population from 8,315 in 1890 to 23,086 in 1940. The population was 14,057 at the 2010 census.

Steamtown National Historic Site

This small museum is all about steam engines and their contribution to America's economy in the 19th century.

If you love trains, this is the place to go! It's history is very interesting, and you can get right up close to view trains of different times. AND, you can ride one to another town, and back, which I would highly suggest!

PNC Field

Reviewed By Ellenlyn - Pennsylvania

We had such a nice day with family and friends. This field is home to the minor league Rail Riders (NY Yankee franchise). The players are fairly good to kids requesting autographs. At the end of the game we saw, they allowed little ones to run bases. You can order food delivered to your seat(for a fee). It's a great location - The field is immediately off route 81. There is a good shopping center, a cinemark, a visitor center and hotels nearby. Seat prices are reasonable ($10 -$14). You pay $2 to park and $4 for water. A nearby ski resort has summer water park and zip line activities so you really can make a weekend out of your ball game plans.

The Lost Trails ATV Adventures

Reviewed By benweiss - Cooper City, Florida

Nice trails with a combination of rocky/muddy/rivery trails. Do not bring your good clothes or shoes. Wear preferably smooth boots and long jeans. No shorts. My ankle got slightly burned because I had short socks and the steam from the water hitting the engine rose up and created a slight burn. Wear long socks under your long jeans and should not be a issue. Stay toward the back of the pack and you can ham it up like I did. I did get a stern warning from the guy trailing us in the back but I didn't care because its extremely unlikely they will pull you off. Its about an hour long and that's about all you'll want. Your wrists will be tired after that unless your used to this kind of activity.

Circle Drive-In

The Circle Drive-in Theatre, built in 1945, is one of the longest running drive-in theaters in America showing first run features, suitable for all ages. Also at the Circle Drive-in is the Circle Flea Fair, the largest flea market and farmers market in Northeastern Pennsylvania; and the Circle of Screams, a new Haunt that is sure to scare you this Halloween.

Reviewed By Jolene B - Gainesville, Virginia

Every Sunday, the Circle Drive-In doubles as a large Flea Market with over 100 local vendors. We stopped at this flea market on our way from Gettysburg to Syracuse. It in the hills of Dickson City, PA and for 50 cents per car, is a good use of a functional Drive-In theater during the daytime hours on Sundays.

There were about 100+ vendors with everything from household items, to tools, antiques dolls, some furniture, bric-a-brac, clothes, new sunglasses, Avon, resale dry goods, etc. All vendors were friendly and were willing to negotiate prices.

The concession stand of the theater is open and offers the full array of theater food during the flea market. The restrooms attached to the concession stand are also open for use during the flea market.

If you are a bargain hunter or just want to stroll down memory lane, viewing items from your childhood, this is the venue for you. I would recommend this flea market to bargain hunters of all ages.

Worth it all just to stop in for a sniff and a sample...but its hard to stop there. What one can do with chocolate is quite sinful...and here is temptation after temptation. We always get more that what we want, and then regret we didn't get more!

The Electric City Trolley Station and Museum

Reviewed By John L - Medina, Ohio

I have never known much about trolleys. When I lived in Pittsburgh, you could ride the trolleys in town and across the Mon in the south hills, so when I visited the museum I learned about the cars, their propulsion, and those little details that humanize cold steel and wood. One of most interesting features of the museum is a ride on a five-mile (ten miles total) trolley out to Scranton's AAA baseball field. It was quite a trip. There is an excellent bookstore and gift shop. I highly recommend this. In addition, it is next door to Steamtown so you can get all steamed up in the morning and then ride in an electric streetcar. What a deal!

There is a ton to do here! It is easy to get in and out of the plaza and there is plenty of parking!
It's all outside so if so go on a busy, rainy, day make sure to take an umbrella to go between stores and your car.

Dickson City Laser Tag

We are a laser tag facility with a 4300 square foot arena themed as a pirate shipwreck, complete with targets and fog. Games start every 20 minutes starting at the top of every hour. We have 36 vests. Birthday parties, walk-ins, group outings, and camps are all welcome. We have a rotating wall climber, pool tables, air hockey and other arcade games.

Reviewed By giaimo13 - Atlanta

The front desk at our hotel gave us a free pass for LazerTag. I brought two kids and they both had a blast, even though they were the only ones in the laser tag room at the time. There are also snacks for purchase, a great air hockey table, and some other coin-operated attractions. I had a hard time spending $20 on two kids, so it's not only fun, it's affordable, too!

Scranton Lake Walking Path

Reviewed By Elie6 - Galway, Ireland

This is my go-to for running while here. As of mid-may, still closed bc they are being precise about clearing the hanging limbs and branches (from the tornado damage) from the trees before they let anyone on.

If its open when you get here, it is worth it. Go near dusk, see many animals.
