Mar 1, 2013 - Pennsylvania Potpourri

Pennsylvania is a great place for an educational vacation or an adventure getaway, with state parks, picturesque small towns and urban centers that attract charter bus visitors to the Keystone State all year round.  A great way of viewing and visiting Pennsylvania’s rich history, natural wonders and fun attractions is with a bus, charter bus, coach bus, party bus, mini bus, passenger coach or school bus chartered from Charter Bus Pennsylvania.  Travel around the state in style and comfort with your Charter Bus Pennsylvania charter bus, and enjoy the best that Pennsylvania has to offer.

For charter bus visitors who enjoy culture and architecture should make a charter bus trip tot he University of Pittsburgh.  Located in the middle of campus at the University of Pittsburgh is the Cathedral of Learning.  This a 42-story architectural wonder will easily take up an afternoon during a charter bus visit.  Despite the name, this isn't a religious building.  Home to classrooms, libraries and lecture halls, the cathedral is the second-tallest educational building in the world.  While many charter bus visitors may appreciate the building for its gothic architecture, like the four-story limestone arches of its commons room, the cathedral is also home to over 25 "nationality rooms." Each of these rooms, which are used as working classrooms, is constructed to emulate architecture from China, London or other countries from around the world.  They are decorated with books and artifacts representing the heritage that inspired the room, making them a destination for tourists and global history buffs.  Guided tours are available for charter bus visitors to have a look at these rooms.

Charter bus visitors looking for a more leisurely vacation will appreciate Pennsylvania's Pocono Mountains, home to luxury resorts and spas.  This destination provides entertainment all year long, with horseback riding in warmer months or skiing opportunities in the winter.  The mountains themselves occupy four northeastern Pennsylvania counties and 2,400 square miles, and offer picturesque views of waterfalls and woodlands.  Charter bus visitors can choose accommodations ranging from the romantic and lavish Chateau Resort and Conference Center to the family-friendly Cranberry Run Campground. Charter bus visitors can also spend their days perusing antique shops, enjoying a play at a local theater, or basking in the sun on one of the Pocono's lakefront beaches.

Adventurous charter bus visitors who crave a thrill will appreciate Pennsylvania's Eastern State Penitentiary.  Opened in 1829 and finally abandoned in 1971, the former prison now claims the title of "America's Most Historic Prison."  Featured on television shows including "Ghost Hunters" and "Most Haunted Live," the penitentiary has a spooky reputation, with claims of ghost sightings beginning as early as the 1940s. Charter bus visitors who want to experience the excitement for themselves can visit the prison's annual haunted house, which offers nighttime tours from September through November.  The faint of heart, however, might opt for a daytime historic tour, available year-round.
