Hey gals, here’s hoping someone checks this on a semi-regular basis. I know there are some PA brides out there, so I’m looking for suggestions.
My Fiance and I are from Michigan, but want to honeymoon in Pennsylvania. We’ve both always thought it was a beautiful state, but have no idea where to start looking for where to go. We’re looking for somewhere with outdoor activities, some local history, and some interesting culture (art gallery, theater, etc, doesn’t have to be big).

Philadelphia is a wonderful city to visit. Check out the website http://www.gophila.com it has a lot of great info. I am a Philadelphia native and I use it to find new places to go.

When are you guys planning on honeymooning? Besides the obvious Philadelphia, I would suggest going to Hershey (although I am a lil’ biased ).
Hershey Park (it’s an amuesment park) is open seasonally in the summer, but they are open for Halloween events and Christmas events too. While in Hershey you can also check out the Hershey Museum, Chocolate World, and Hershey Gardens. Harrisburg (the capital of PA) is about 20 minutes from Hershey. And just to note, Philly is 1.5-2 hours away from Hershey; so you can do both!). http://www.hersheypa.com/
If you are going in the summer, check out Lancaster (which is about 45 minutes from Hershey) to check out Amish country. The PA Renaissance Faire is a summer thing (a must see!), but they have plays going on year round (also 45 min. from Hershey).
Gettysburg is not to bar away from Hershey/Harrisburg either.

The Poconos are always scenic too!

The Poconos is what I was looking for, I just forgot to put it in my original post. But, there are so many little towns in there that I don’t quite know where to start.
See, if you wanted to honeymoon in Michigan, I would tell you to definitely look into the Traverse City area. Traverse City has all kinds of neat shopping, scenery, and things to do. If you’re looking for a small town on the bay, definitely go to Elk Rapids. The town has a great charm, and there are a ton of activities available. If you want something a bit more upscale, try Charlevoix or Bay City.
That’s kind of what I’m looking for, sorry I wasn’t more clear in the beginning 🙂

I’m not from Philly, but I know its a fun city. I am from Pittsburgh and it is also pretty great and there is a lot of history here. If you’re into museums, they are a must see. I would also suggest Nemacolin for a relaxing retreat…. http://www.nemacolin.com/

Also look at Bedford Springs Resort. It’s totally beautiful and secluded 🙂
