The actual fort is great and worth seeing. Disappointed in the center that is not completed or they are remodeling, not sure which. A lot of 'coming soon' signs where there should be displays.

I have taken many groups to Compass Inn, with many senior citizens. They really enjoy the living history. The docents are excellent, share the origins of words and phrases and are attentive to all.

Western PA's largest and oldest produce only market. About 130 vendors weekly set up from 8-noon every Saturday from Memorial Day weekend through the first Saturday in October. Vendors are equally distributed between fresh produce, fruit, poultry, meats, bedding plants and perennials. Many of our farmers sell heirloom varieties of tomatoes and other vegetables. Most employ organic methods of farming.
Talk about great food, come to the Country Market in Ligonier. Every Saturday morning in the summer, a variety of food booths are cooking up great food. Als, of the 100 tents, many are craftsmen tents (jewelry, soaps, outdoor furniture, paintings and art crafts, etc:)...MoreThe fresh produce is starting to come in more and more. See you next week.

My toddler is a Daniel Tiger super fan! So being that we were able to get on the trolley and have him see the show and become super excited was worth the 5hr ride from Philadelphia. The park offered free return tickets for the 2018 season as something occurred in the water park. I had no idea I was given this, the person at the booth should have been more clear.
Plenty of rest areas
Only one attendant per ride makes lines super drag out
The food is pricey at the park, I recommend purchasing the online food combo you save on average $2 dollars a person if you go this route.

Another fine season at Ligonier beach! 91 years and still going strong. Community pools are becoming fewer and fewer and this one deserves your support. You will find no better value for an entire day's entertainment. There is sooo much space around this gigantic pool you never feel crowded even on hot days. There is a snack bar as well as bar/restaurant. This establishment is CASH ONLY, but there is an ATM. Check out the Facebook page for special events. There is a large fenced in sandy area for the little ones.

Incorporating Mt. Davis, the highest point in Pennsylvania, this scenic region features whitewater rafting and miles of trails for hiking, cross-country skiing and backpacking.
We found many things to do in this beautiful area in southwest Pennsylvania, about a 90 minute drive from Pittsburgh. We stayed at the Hampton Inn in Somerset because it was centrally located but there are many motels and B&B's in the area.
Our main reason for going there was to see Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater, which was spectacular. There is another FLW home in the area, Kentuck Knob, which was equally interesting and has a unique sculpture garden on the property.
Driving from the airport to Somerset, we drove through Ligonier and stopped to see the fort from the French and Indian War. It happened to be Fort Ligonier Days and a reenactment was going on - a great way to learn about history.
Two historic roads in this area also are worth driving - the Lincoln Highway and the National Road. Following these roads take you past covered bridges, more historic sites and beautiful scenery. A side trip off the Lincoln Hwy to the temporary Flight 93 Memorial is quite emotional.

The Ligonier Valley Railroad Museum is currently offering free admission until Labor Day. We recently had a very nice tour conducted by one of the knowledgeable members on a Saturday afternoon. There are many fascinating items for those interested in history or the railroad. One can also walk through the red caboose located near the restored train station.
Diamond Theatre is a live performance venue. Primarily promoting plays and musicals but also host talent shows and battle of the bands etc. Call ahead of your visit to confirm show times and dates or check the facebook page. See you at the show!
