Luzerne County Named The Official Best Outdoors Destination in PA
Luzerne County was named as the Official Best Outdoors Destination in PA by The Official Best of Pennsylvania Website!! A research team studies online travel sites, state tourism information, CVB resources and other sources to determine whether an attraction merits the “Official Best” reputability. The selection of Luzerne County is based entirely by merit. The Official Best of PA will air on KYW/CBS3 Philadelphia and on The Travel Channel, dates to be determined. It will also be featured on their web site at OfficialBestOf.com.
Some of Luzerne County’s best outdoors venues include: Ricketts Glen State Park, home to Falls Trail voted as Backpacker Magazine’s 2009 People’s Choice for Best Hike in PA; paddling on the Susquehanna River, Lake Jean and Francis Slocum Lake; single track mountain biking at Moon Lake, whitewater rafting on the Lehigh River and Wilkes-Barre’s newest park…the River Common, site of the 2010 RiverFest.
