Laurel Hill State Park

Reviewed By crutt13 - Philadelphia, PA

We recently visited the park and Laurel Hill Lake while on vacation. The park is well maintained and has lots of good trails and family areas. The first has a lot of old growth timber and was quite pretty.

The lake area is well maintained. There are places to picnic and there is a small concession stand to buy food at. There are bathrooms right on the lake and they do have available showers. The lake has a fairly large Beach area that is sand and is kept clean. There is a large designated swimming area that is roped off. The water is clear up to about 2-3 feet out which was great for small children. In the morning the mountain on the backside of the lake offers some morning shade. They also offer boat paddle board and kayak rentals. There's is also a small playground area on the the beach.

I would strongly recommend this as a nice place to get away and relax for the day.

Rockwood Mill Shoppes & Opera House

Reviewed By pghsteve - PITTSBURGH,PA

What a fantastic way to have a night away from home. Biking on the Allegheny Passage Trail , staying at a local Bed & Breakfast and having an Opera House in town with various different performances throughout the year. The Saturday night we were there was a buffet dinner and murder mystery. SOLD OUT! (approx. 100 people). Fun performance , buffet was fine . There was even a wine tasting event before the buffet and show. Think about combining biking/hiking with some evening entertainment . Good times.

Spent yesterday skiing at Seven Springs. Drove to the slopes from Pittsburgh and did not stay at the resort. This was my third ski day at Seven Springs this season. The resort has the best slopes in western PA and they generally try to provide the best conditions that the weather permits, but, that come with it's own consequences. During two trips this year, the resort had full blown snow making in progress the entire day. This made for miserable skiing. I checked their website before heading to the slopes and the report did not accurately represent this condition.

The Clock Tower restaurant does not even deserve one star but I had to give a rating to write a review.

When we arrived, we were the only table in the entire restaurant including the bar. We had a brand new waitress who you could tell was not trained at all. In her defense, management clearly did not take the time to train her as she had no idea about anything.

Our drinks took entirely too long...remember the restaurant was empty. The drinks were also not full pours and if we insisted on a full pour, we were charged double for it.

Very poor service in general and no atmosphere whatsoever. No effort was made to make the place inviting for the holidays including no decorations.

Everything was expensive and over priced for the quality and experience. Do not go there.

Fallingwater

Perched on a rock above a gushing waterfall, this historic house was built for a Pittsburgh family by architect Frank Lloyd Wright in the 1930s, ingeniously designed to blend harmoniously into the tranquil and beautiful woods around it.

Reviewed By D P - Wellington, New Zealand

Designed by one of the US’s most iconic architects this place really was one of his masterpieces and a turning point in architecture around the world.
Not cheap to get in and also very popular I recommend you book a tour well in advance especially in the busier seasons.
Well worth a look around both inside and from the grounds around it.
Interesting house with great guides to tell you all about the who’s and whys things were done as they were.

Tall Pines Distillery

Hand Crafted Moonshine and Tasting Room.

Reviewed By Tracy A

This is a unique and pleasant departure from traditional beer, wine & liquor tastings. Super friendly Dozer, the dog, was the first to welcome us into the fantastically decorated family owned and run business. We hung out at the tasting bar with Lisa and Jake as she told us the history of their business and explained each flavor as we tasted them. Coffee Mocha was a favorite of ours and we ended up buying a bottle to take home. Afterwards, we were given a tour and Lisa explained their distillation process. We truly had a good time and happy Groupon pointed this out as an activity we might be interested in. No reservations needed. Just check website for times they are open for general “tastings”. We look forward to returning.

Flight 93 National Memorial

The memorial site dedicated to those who lost their lives on United Airlines Flight 93, September 11, 2001.

Reviewed By Tom K - Greensburg

I'm very impressed with what the National Park Service has done here. A very fitting tribute to the everyday Americans who became heroes. Like many others, I can still recall vividly where I was and what I was doing when I first heard the news that day. It's nearly impossible to walk through the museum without shedding a tear, especially the passenger wall with all their photos. I first came to the site when it was basically a dirt path with the chain link fence memorial wall. To see it now is truly remarkable and inspiring.

Living Treasures Animal Park

Living Treasures Wild Animal Park, a great family experience for all ages. We have hundreds of animals almost in touching range. A large petting area features new babies that love to be hand fed. We are adjacent to Log Cabin Lodge and Suites. Come spend the day with us.

Reviewed By Russ H - Altoona, Pennsylvania

For some reason, this place doesn't really advertise. having said that, it's a fine & unusual place, with (obligatorily,) pony rides, a petting zoo containing a baby camel, little calf, goats, sheep, miniature horses (who demand attention/food by kicking the fence); there are free range chickens who occasionally let you pet them if you give them some food. In the lemur enclosure, I watched as a lemur reach through the fence & try to grab one of the hens as it wandered by. There are some unusual animals (highland cattle, orange & black pigs, a white tiger, dingoes, marmosets & lemurs, among other things. One can also participate in bottle feeding some of the babies (I watched some of the goats, the calf & the baby camel all being bottle fed). All told it was a very nice children's experience. (In the gift shop there are actual paintings one can buy done by the dingoes & the tigers)

Inside the chapel is a collection of stuff as a memorial to Flight 93 AND Benghazi victims. Out back is an obelisk to honor the crew. Bus tour but call ahead for hours.
