Summer

Summer days are all about living life to the fullest. Send caution to the wind and live a little! Jump on a zip line and feel the cool summer breeze in your face or take the whitewater challenge and face the waves.

Find your great escape from it all, at one of our area day spas for complete relaxation or enjoy a quiet cup of fresh brewed coffee at one of our family owned cafes.

Cool off and float down the lazy river at our area’s premiere water park; don’t forget your sunhat! Or plant yourself next to one our region’s lakes or rivers and take a good ol’ fashion dip. Fire up the charcoal grill at one of our parks and unpack your picnic basket, all set for al fresco dining.

Wanna cut loose and rock out? The Pavilion at Montage Mountain conveniently brings headliners from all over the world to our mountain tops. Enjoy a weekend festival or come for just the night; throughout the year we’re sure to have a band that will get your feet moving.

On those days where the summer sun is in full swing, it may call for cooler ground. Travel deep below the earth’s surface and experience a day-in-the-life of the area’s ancestors at the Lackawanna County Coal Mine Tour. Then walk over to the Pennsylvania Anthracite Heritage Museum, to dig deeper into the history. For a further taste of history, The Electric City Trolley Museum shares the story of how Scranton became deemed, “The Electric City,” even letting you hop on the old trolley train for an authentic tour along the tracks.

The lights associated with summer nights often leave the best memories. Grab your glove and get ready to catch a foul ball at PNC Field under the big lights. Bring the whole family and check out the fireworks offered at select night games! Or let Mother Nature illuminate your evening while laying underneath the open night sky, counting constellations, and catching fireflies.
