Wellsboro is the kind of town that stepped right out of a Hallmark movie with fantastic eateries, locally owned stores that line Main Street, a movie theater, and even a park for the kids to run around. Wellsboro has a slew of lodging options, all entirely reasonably priced. And, if you can’t resist bargain shopping even while away for a weekend, there’s even a thrift store packed to the gills with treasures.

While the world refers to it as the Pennsylvania or PA Grand Canyon, its actual name is the Pine Creek Gorge and it stretches for over 45 miles with depths of nearly 150 feet. There are walking, hiking trails, and even an observation tower – if you’re brave enough to climb it.

The Pennsylvania Grand Canyon is a sight to be seen and even if you're unable to climb, bike, or hike, you will be able to as there are handicapped-accessible paths that offer breathtaking views.
