This historical site marks the first battlefield of the American French and Indian War.
A great National Park Service location with a modern museum experience that tells the history of George Washington’s involvement at Fort Necessity and the larger world impact of those events. It was also great to learn more about the history of the region and the National Road (now US40) at this location. Great outdoor walks, one note - be sure to wear appropriate hiking clothes and shoes. Worth a quick stop if you are in the area and are interested in American history.

Cave with 2.8 miles of underground passages: great for viewing weird rock formations.
My wife and I are senior citizens who like a new adventure. We talked ourselves into taking the 2-hour "upper cave" tour on a rainy Monday afternoon. Our guide, Zach, prepared we newbies for what to expect and told us he would tailor the tour to our limitations (we were the only two on the tour.) Navigating the passageways and the climbing up and down was challenging at times and scary at times, but we always felt in good hands with Zach and intern Cicely. In addition to his obvious love of caving, he provided us with a lot of geological facts about caves, geological history, you name it. Zach is quite personable, a good story teller and a great source for a few geology basics. Somewhat surprised to read the negative comments about the well-designed lighting in the family tour portion of the cave. The lights were aesthetically pleasing to this occasional spelunker.

Enter a world of soothing sounds, invigorating aromas and natural luxury that will make time seem to stand still. All paths at Nemacolin's Spa Collection lead to one place: a state of peace, health and well-being. The Spa Collection makes Nemacolin not only a top Spa Resort in Pennsylvania, but also an internationally acclaimed spa destination.
My wife and I both enjoyed the 80 minutes mystical massage. My therapist Mike did an excellent job and was enjoyable to talk with. My wife enjoyed her treatment also. The facilities are first class.

This is near Fort Necessity Museum. It is closed because of Covid. You can walk around the beautifully restored restaurant/inn. There is a pioneer wagon there. George Washington liked the area so much that after the battle, he purchased the land and built the Tavern as a stop for stagecoaches.

Interesting stop for history buffs and for those who have just visited the Fort Necessity Visitor Center and crave a little more experience of the times. It's right by the road with a small parking lot and won't take more than 5 mins to experience. Worth a stop and it's just a few minutes down the road from the visitor center on the old National Road, Route 40. So much history in this area.
