Adventures in Civilization
Fort NecessityCredit: Allen Stoner is one of the few, if only, National Parks solely dedicated to the French and Indian War. It's not a large park so it wont take a lot of time, unless you take advantage of some of their hiking trails. The stockade is a rebuilt one as the original was burned down after the battle.
The National Historic Road - built by George Washington to open up the region to settlers and keep them trading with the British. Today Rt 40 follows some of the same route as the National Historic Road.
Fallingwater - Frank Lloyd Wright’s masterpiece that demonstrates the harmony that can exist between buildings and nature.
Skiing and golf will allow the visitor to enjoy some of the great outdoors of the Ohiopyle region, just in different seasons.
For those bad weather days, or for someone that just doesn't like the outdoors, there are several antique shops and craft stores in the area.
