Family Fun

Sometimes it can be a challenge to find fun activities for children while vacationing – but not in the Pennsylvania Great Outdoors region. Hand feeding deer, trout, and other animals will put smiles on the faces of young and old alike. Families can explore educational discovery centers and enjoy outdoor activities like canoeing, horseback riding, go-karts, and many fun events that will entertain everyone in your family. Make some new memories and start some new traditions in the Pennsylvania Great Outdoors.

The Pennsylvania Great Outdoors region has many fun and exciting opportunities to get the family outside together to play in the snow or spend the day indoors somewhere warm!  Whether you’re on a family vacation or spending the day with the grandkids, we can help you find exactly what you’re looking for to entertain kids of any age!

  • Swing into the BWP Bat Factory in Brookville for a FREE tour and get your name laser engraved on your very own baseball bat, just like the pros use!
  • Explore the new Wildlife Center at Sinnemahoning State Park and crawl through a bear’s den, and other state-of-the-art galleries and exhibits including wildlife watching, camping, and a park ranger’s office!
  • Ice skating is a fun winter pastime! Head to Cook Forest State Park where the scenery is breathtaking and the activities are endless!  The ice skating pond can be found on River Road (approximately one mile from Route 36).  Bring your own skates or stop at Cooksburg Dry Goods for skate rental.
  • Grab some sleds and make some memories!  The sledding hill in Cook Forest State Park is perfect!  Located just behind the ice skating pond.
