Experience railroad history at this historic Pennsylvania site.
Great presentation of historic method to transport people and cargo across the mountains. Visitors center has displays explaining operation of system. A walkway thru the woods takes you to the engine house and Lemon house. There is a nice picnic area, but it is accessed by car only from a different highway exit a mile away. It is accessible by trail from the Visitors Center, and is a nice walk.

If you are planning a rail fan visit to the area, this is a great place to watch the trains come out of the tunnel. Drive the roads in the area and nearby is where they switch off the pushers & they have a viewing area their also. Always remember to respect the RR property. We didn't make it into the museum this trip as it was closed. Across from the park is a B&B and also another one near where they switch out the pushers, both unfortunately were closed when we were their :-(

If you're a baseball fan or are just looking for a great experience outdoors with friends, family or kids don't miss a ball game here! Super family friendly and lots of exciting entertainment besides the game to amuse the little ones in between innings! Very tasty snacks, food and treats available at the concession stands and a great selection of cold beers for those who enjoy a cold one or two at the ball park! "Go Curve!"

An fun afternoon is to be had by all while exploring the old furnace of Canoe Creek State Park! Perfect destination for a good game of "hide and go seek!" Your children will just love running in and out and looking up and all about for sure!! There's a lovely boardwalk trail lakefront that is peaceful and beautiful brushing up against a marsh area where frogs are ribbiting! I enjoyed soaking in the sun drenched landscape in the stillness of the afternoon.....nature can be so restorative to ones soul! :)

This is probably the nicest play gym in the area. The soft play is very clean and a great place for kids to play. The staff is nice and wants you to have a good time. The arcade portion needs a lot of work. The same games are broken week after week. Balls are missing, games are in separate need of attention. The games don't put out the correct number of tickets. We go about once a week, kids love it.

A museum celebrating the history of the railroad in industrial America.
Great museum. We loved seeing all the train and rail industry history. If you plan to go to the horseshoe curve, it is good to know that he wheels of the trains screech loudly as they go around the curve, so I recommend bringing earmuffs for little ones others who are sensitive to loud noises.

We stopped here while we were in Duncansville upon recommendation from a friend. We were especially interested in visiting the Hoss' Food Outlet. We got some great food items at the Hoss' outlet at very good prices. The ribs were delicious and we wished we would have gotten more. The rest of the flea market was also very interesting to browse. There are a lot of vendors and tons of items to look at. I could stay there for hours!

I didn't research this much, but went to see the rocks and was surprised with the view of Hollidaysburg. It is kind of tricky for an out of townie to locate. There are 2 Chimney Rocks Roads in this town, and my GPS took me to the dead end one first. I was able to flag down a mailman for direction and then found it easily. Worth seeing if in the area for sure.

An unusual construction of rail-building that enabled trains to move westward.
In just 40 minutes four trains came by. When we arrived one was completing its turn and heading away. Soon two trains came by, one going each direction. A third came by before closing. The trains have to move slowly so you get lots of time to see them and they were blowing their horns. All were freight trains. The viewing area is a small grass strip with benches in the center of the curve with an observation deck that overlooks the water below. It doesn't encircle the curve but you can get within of the trains (don't walk on the tracks). However this small area is very spacious. There's even a caboose on display. The only thing I didn't like was the cable car only runs every 30 minutes. However a staircase helps if you're willing to climb them. We used the cable car to go up and staircase to come down.

Located at the back of an Antique Mall, this 9-layout model train display is worth the effort it takes to locate it. There are several different gauge layouts -- large layouts with working trains and much detail in scenery. Not only are there working trains, there are working amusement parks, cars, trucks, etc. There is also a fairly good-size children's area with wooden train sets on tables for play and two ride-on trains on tracks. There is also a working model of the Horseshoe Curve which is near Altoona. While there is no admission fee, donations are gratefully accepted.
