With the beuatiful weather it's time to be thinking "outdoors"! So we put together something for you called our PA Hiking page. It's basically a sampling of the information you can find in any PA county under our "What to do" category. After tasting the sample start hitting the various regions and counties. One of our favorite things is "rafting" in Fayette County. You'll find Fayette County in southwestern PA. If the names of the counties intimidate you try finding things by towns. This feature will take you to the right county. Try it! You can't get lost and you will be pleasantly surprised.
