Fallingwater

Perched on a rock above a gushing waterfall, this historic house was built for a Pittsburgh family by architect Frank Lloyd Wright in the 1930s, ingeniously designed to blend harmoniously into the tranquil and beautiful woods around it.

Reviewed By D P - Wellington, New Zealand

Designed by one of the US’s most iconic architects this place really was one of his masterpieces and a turning point in architecture around the world.
Not cheap to get in and also very popular I recommend you book a tour well in advance especially in the busier seasons.
Well worth a look around both inside and from the grounds around it.
Interesting house with great guides to tell you all about the who’s and whys things were done as they were.

Kentuck Knob

Reviewed By bvlesterdesign - Washington DC, District of Columbia

Honestly found this property more compelling a creation than the famous Fallingwater.
Once discovering that Wright actually never saw the finished product makes it that much more brilliant.
Filled with custom furniture and otherworldly interactive details, it’s an absolute marvel!
Take the opportunity to photograph yourself amongst the beautiful mountainous backdrop in the rear of the property

West Overton Village & Museums

Reviewed By GRNEYEDgirl3201 - Latrobe, Pennsylvania

We visited West Overton Village & Museums over the past weekend. It is located in Scottdale, PA, easy to find off of 119 or through Mt. Pleasant. The admission for adults is $8.00. "Entertainment" books usually have a coupon for this attraction.This local history attraction is an example of a Pre-Civil War industrial village, and is a stop on the American Whiskey Trail. There is a very interesting museum depicting the whiskey industry in this little town, created and run by Abraham Overholt. There is a small film, tour through the museum, the Overhold Homestead and a couple of the outbuildings. The Springhouse is where Henry Clay Frick was born. The village had some very successful enterprises back in the day, weaving coverlets, distilling Rye Whiskey, coking coal, farming, coopering and livestock husbandry. Museum was well done with an informative tour guide thoughout and through the mansion on the property. There is a small gift shop in the museum and other non-tourable brick buildings along the street to view along with a couple of shops set up in original buildings of the town. This site also is popular for wedding ceremonies and receptions. We witnessed one outdoor ceremony at the end of our visit. A nice little outing for Western PA natives looking to learn more about their history.

Evergreen Drive-In Theatre

Reviewed By Richard S - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

First time to the Evergreen Drive-in. Very nice place. Great place to take the kids. Two movie showings for only 9 dollars a piece for adults. All three of my kids were free (under 5). Very nice concession stand, that was pretty inexpensive. Clean bathrooms, and a lot of room for your vehicle. a lot better than going to the movie theater. Also, they show new movies. will go again.

Geyer Performing Arts Center

Reviewed By shadster643 - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

We spent an enjoyable evening watching the play "RUMORS." The actors were very good for a small-town venue.

I was surprised at the audience participation. The locals really support this establishment. They served free refreshments during intermission (ice cream and iced tea) which was so hospitable!

Sorry I wasn't aware of this theatre soon enough to catch "Cats." West Side Story and Little House of Horrors are scheduled for the fall so we'll catch those instead.

(The Geyer Opera House was built in 1900 by Andrew Geyer. The Geyer Opera House was later converted into a movie theater and renamed the Strand Theater. The Strand Theater closed around 1971.

The building was renovated in the 1980’s and reopened in 1988 as a community theater. In 1995 the name was changed to the Geyer Performing Arts Center or GPAC for short.

Wilderness Voyageurs has been taking river & cycling trips out for the past 40+ years and it shows. We travelled all the way from Australia to ride the GAP Trail. Frank & Rich were not only wonderful guides but solid, friendly people. The ride itself was great but enhanced substantially by the guides, their culinary ability and the magnificent accomodation on offer.
The GAP Trail is an iconic journey - the only way to do it is as a guest of WV! Thanks WV.

From the start, we weren't exactly sure where to check-in. After being told directions in the gift shop, we were still unsure, but there was another White Water employee there, that was nice enough to explain it again. Guides were amazing with a great sense...MoreThank you for choosing White Water Adventurers for your rafting adventure. Please come back to see us again soon.

Ohiopyle Trading Post

Reviewed By anb219 - Baltimore, Maryland

I called over a month prior to my reservation to cancel due to an expected medical condition. I had made my reservation by phone and was not told of any cancellation policy. When I called to cancel my reservation, I was told that they will only refund 90% (they kept $9) due to the $1.50 charge they get for running a credit card and because it costs them money when people call their 1-800 number. I explained that no one had told me this when I booked the reservation on the phone and that I never called their 1-800 number; I had called their local number. The woman assured me that the man I spoke to told me the policy (was she there when I made the reservation? No!) even when I told her that he had not. What a horrible business practice. If you can't afford a 1-800 number then don't have one. I would never sign up for this again or recommend it to anyone. I only cancelled due to a medical condition and they refused to fully refund me and then called me a liar on top of it.
