Best Attractions in Pennsylvania

1. Pittsburg Zoo The Pittsburg Zoo aims to create positive relationships between patrons and animals that dwell within the 77 acres of the park. The zoo first cut its ribbons to the public on June 14, 1898, introducing citizens of Pittsburg to wildlife not depicted anywhere else.

Throughout the park’s evolution, zookeepers opted to grow as more of a conservation territory than a tourist attraction. Today, the Pittsburg Zoo dedicates countless hours and millions of dollars to conserving ocelots, elephants, armadillos, alligator lizards, and coral.

2. Petting Farm Critter Country Animal Farm Critter Country sits in the unassuming middle of Smithton, Pennsylvania. The petting zoo and farm was established over 20 years ago when Laurie and Rob Salvio wanted to promote animal health and safety.

This petting farm differs from other petting farms. It houses typical farm animals like horses, cows, and goats, but they also take in animals found on other continents, much like a zoo.

3. Knoebels Amusement Park Heard stories of an amusement park deep in the heart of the Elysburg, Pennsylvania mountains?

Knoebel’s Amusement Park possesses the world’s top-rated wooden roller coaster. As its name suggests, the Phoenix was resurrected from its original ashes.
