Scranton the “Electric City” offers its visitors an experience like no other. Take a trolley ride from the Trolley Museum, which neighbors Steamtown National Historic Site. Explore the vast history of the Scranton Coal Miners and go on a coal mine tour, which tours you in a non-working mine. Scranton offers a bit of taste for everyone and the ethnically diverse dining experience is something right out of a big city. The Parks in town offer various places for running, biking, walking or simply enjoying nature and the views that only Scranton has to offer. Scranton has art galleries, universities and seasonal festivals like First Friday, theater performances and musical experiences.
