If you’re still unsure about travel, join the Lackawanna Historical Society for their summer walking tours! These free guided tours provide local residents and visitors with a chance to learn more about Downtown Scranton’s magnificent architecture, and learn more about buildings and neighborhoods you pass every day.
We will be offering tours on Friday evenings as well as Saturday morning. Each tour focuses on a different thematic region of the city. A new tour this year will meet at the Radisson Lackawanna Station and discuss the business district on Lackawanna Avenue and spotlight the former red-light district!
