Our mountain laurel begins to bloom again and our activities ramp up into full gear. Gentle rain coaxes the scent of spring from the ground. City streets seem to shine more brightly in the increasing daylight hours.
Revel in our county parks and city trails for hiking, biking, walking, and running! Urban jogging paths and reclaimed rail to trail paths offer visitors unending places to log a daily run. Nothing says spring more than hearing the cry “play ball!” which is heard at PNC Field, a 10,000-seat minor league baseball stadium located in Moosic, Pennsylvania. It is the home of the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders, the AAA affiliate of the New York Yankees.
Outdoor enthusiasts who find their happy places nearer to water need look no further than the county’s mountain lakes, nearby rivers and water parks to find a choice of swimming, fishing, kayaking, canoeing or white water rafting options.
If a rainy spring day keeps you looking for indoor spaces to investigate, there is a variety of museums for you to visit. Whether your passion is huge trains, coal mining, or exhibits from the natural environment, there is a regional museum ready to share our history with you. Our cultural scene stretches from exhibitions to concert venues. The ever-changing schedule of events ensures a vibrant and wide array of music, theatre, movies, lectures, and much more.
