Big City Feel

Arts and culture are a huge part of the Scranton scene. Find the entertainment and dining experience you would find in major cities without breaking the bank.

Find that perfect souvenir or a unique piece of jewelry at the boutique shops in Downtown Scranton. With up and coming sections such as Bogart Court and Spruce Street shopping, you are sure to find a handmade item by our local vendors. 


Lackawanna County is known for its culinary scene. Its ethnic cuisine ranges from Italian, Polish, Mediterranean, Irish, Thai, Mexican, Japanese, Chinese, Lebanese, and many more! With over 600 restaurants in the county, we would be happy to point you in the right direction to satisfy everyone’s taste buds.    

After dinner take a leisurely stroll (or drive) to the Scranton Cultural Center at the Masonic Temple to take in a Broadway show. With new acts arriving each year such as Beautiful: The Carole King Story, Chicago, and A Christmas Story: The Musical, Broadway fans will witness the power of music in the historic theater.


To truly appreciate the Scranton Cultural Center at the Masonic Temple, call ahead for a tour of the building. Your group will appreciate knowing the history behind the structure designed and executed by Raymond Hood, the same architect of Rockefeller Center and Radio City Music Hall in NYC!

If you are looking for a nightcap after the show, Downtown Scranton is host to many restaurants and bars open until 2:00 am for a cocktail or two (we won’t judge if you have three!). Locations such as Backyard Ale House, POSH, and Ale Mary’s at the Bittenbender provide unique atmospheres to end your night.
