Area Information- Centre County


What is there to do in Centre County?  Of course everyone thinks of Penn State as the major attraction.  But there are plenty of other activities in this beautiful area that don’t involve the university at all.  Let’s find something for everyone!
 
Best place to start would probably be with an overview of Center County where the different regions are highlighted.  The Visitor’s Bureau also gives a summary of the area.   
 
Bellefonte is the county seat and has remained true to its Victorian roots through the years.  This charming town has restaurants ranging from fast food to fine dining along with many unique downtown shops.  Hosting many special events throughout the year, Bellefonte is a pleasant place to live, work, and relax.
 
The most well known town in Central PA is State College, home of Penn State University.  But that isn’t all this town has to offer.  Check out the historic State TheatreEisenhower Auditorium and Bryce Jordan Center for all types of entertainment.  Sports enthusiasts have Nittany Lion football, the State College Spikes semi-pro baseball team, and plenty of local golf choices.  State College is also home to many tasty restaurants, offers a large selection of shopping options, and annually hosts both Arts Festival and First Night.
 
Those who enjoy the outdoors can venture just a few miles from town to hike Mt. Nittany, ski Tussey Mountain, or fly fish in famous Spruce Creek. Don’t miss the annual Ag Progress Days or Grange Fair held in August.  And remember to visit Boalsburg, home to the PA Military Museum, quaintshops, and the annual People’s Choice Festival.
 
Whatever the season - whatever your reason – a trip to Centre County, PA is bound to be full of memories.  And we bet you will want to visit again or perhaps relocate to this beautiful area so correctly dubbed “Happy Valley”.
