In the Region

Near So Much - Yet Far From Ordinary
The Nature Inn is located within a short drive from other major destinations. Historic Boalsburg offers museums, antique shopping and more. Architecture buffs will appreciate the Victorian buildings of Bellefonte, a national historic district. State College has something for everyone, from fine dining to cultural events. Oh, and did someone say something about watching sports?

There is no shortage of outdoor recreation outside the park’s boundaries, either. Some of the country’s best fly fishing is waiting at nearby Spruce Creek. Mountain biking on Mt. Nittany is popular, as well as exploring some of the state’s best caves. You won’t run out of hiking trails in this region, either – some go on for days.

And, of course, the Nature Inn is a southern gateway to the Pennsylvania Wilds – two million acres of public lands set aside for hiking, biking, fishing, boating, hunting and exploration. Within the Pennsylvania Wilds are 29 state parks, 1.3 million acres of state forest land, 50 state game lands and the 500,000 Allegheny National Forest.
