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.

Spent yesterday skiing at Seven Springs. Drove to the slopes from Pittsburgh and did not stay at the resort. This was my third ski day at Seven Springs this season. The resort has the best slopes in western PA and they generally try to provide the best conditions that the weather permits, but, that come with it's own consequences. During two trips this year, the resort had full blown snow making in progress the entire day. This made for miserable skiing. I checked their website before heading to the slopes and the report did not accurately represent this condition.

The Clock Tower restaurant does not even deserve one star but I had to give a rating to write a review.

When we arrived, we were the only table in the entire restaurant including the bar. We had a brand new waitress who you could tell was not trained at all. In her defense, management clearly did not take the time to train her as she had no idea about anything.

Our drinks took entirely too long...remember the restaurant was empty. The drinks were also not full pours and if we insisted on a full pour, we were charged double for it.

Very poor service in general and no atmosphere whatsoever. No effort was made to make the place inviting for the holidays including no decorations.

Everything was expensive and over priced for the quality and experience. Do not go there.

Living Treasures Animal Park

Living Treasures Wild Animal Park, a great family experience for all ages. We have hundreds of animals almost in touching range. A large petting area features new babies that love to be hand fed. We are adjacent to Log Cabin Lodge and Suites. Come spend the day with us.

Reviewed By Russ H - Altoona, Pennsylvania

For some reason, this place doesn't really advertise. having said that, it's a fine & unusual place, with (obligatorily,) pony rides, a petting zoo containing a baby camel, little calf, goats, sheep, miniature horses (who demand attention/food by kicking the fence); there are free range chickens who occasionally let you pet them if you give them some food. In the lemur enclosure, I watched as a lemur reach through the fence & try to grab one of the hens as it wandered by. There are some unusual animals (highland cattle, orange & black pigs, a white tiger, dingoes, marmosets & lemurs, among other things. One can also participate in bottle feeding some of the babies (I watched some of the goats, the calf & the baby camel all being bottle fed). All told it was a very nice children's experience. (In the gift shop there are actual paintings one can buy done by the dingoes & the tigers)

Laurel Hill State Park

Reviewed By crutt13 - Philadelphia, PA

We recently visited the park and Laurel Hill Lake while on vacation. The park is well maintained and has lots of good trails and family areas. The first has a lot of old growth timber and was quite pretty.

The lake area is well maintained. There are places to picnic and there is a small concession stand to buy food at. There are bathrooms right on the lake and they do have available showers. The lake has a fairly large Beach area that is sand and is kept clean. There is a large designated swimming area that is roped off. The water is clear up to about 2-3 feet out which was great for small children. In the morning the mountain on the backside of the lake offers some morning shade. They also offer boat paddle board and kayak rentals. There's is also a small playground area on the the beach.

I would strongly recommend this as a nice place to get away and relax for the day.

It was just me and my 7 year old grandson. We decided to check the place out and were pleased to be able to wind down from the day with a quiet game of miniature golf. They also have a second course that is designed for the "better" golfer. There were also go carts, bumper boats, picnic tables and a small playground for toddlers.

Glades Pike Winery

Reviewed By arubaphil - Kinnelon, New Jersey

Looking for a fun day activity while visiting friends in Pennsylvania, we all decided on a winery excursion. We finished our visit to Fallingwater and chose Glades Pike Winery for our next stop. The staff was very friendly and knew their wines. We sampled five or six wines and purchased the ones we liked. After the tasting, we shared wine and shrimp, charcuterie and a vegetable platter that was available for purchase. You had the option of dining inside or on a deck overlooking the vineyard. It was an enjoyable way to spend a day.

Trillium Spa

Reviewed By Annre2 - Washington DC, District of Columbia

After a not-so-graceful encounter with a slope on the previous day, we were quite achy. However, after having a couples mud wrap with Evelyn and Julie, we then felt amazing. Highly recommend the spa and this specific offering. Greatly enjoyed the spa itself and give the sauna, steam room, relaxation room, and staff two thumbs up. Glad we ended up here. The Moor Mud Wrap was AWESOME! And, it was fun to get the wraps together in the couples room. (As a tip if you are not staying at Seven Springs - make sure you confirm the location when you book. We were staying at Hidden Valley and made the appointment by calling the number on the Hidden Valley website. Thus, we assumed that our services were at Hidden Valley. It was not until the day of our services that we realized that they were booked at the Seven Springs spa instead. In the end, it worked out as we greatly enjoyed our experience.)

Laurel Ridge State Park Cross-Country Ski Area

Reviewed By Larry W - Annapolis, Maryland

Laurel Ridge State Park encompasses a large area that stretches about 70 miles from Ohiopyle on the Youghiogheny River to the Conemaugh Gorge near Johnstown. The main feature of the park is the Laurel Highlands Hiking Trail (LHHT), providing day-hiking and semi-wilderness backpacking experiences with overnight Adirondack-style facilities. The cross-country ski area is located near Rockwood on SR653, with more than 20 miles of inter-connecting trails. During the winter months these trails are groomed for both classic (diagonal striding) and freestyle (skating) skiing. There is a concession at the trail access parking lot where visitors can obtain rental equipment, pay a small daily usage fee, and make use of the comfort facilities. The concession is operated by the Pennsylvania Cross-Country Skier’s Association (PACCSA), who also maintain a web cam at the site and daily updates of conditions - http://www.paccsa.org/lrwebcam. The concession also sells a limited selection of food items and there are picnic tables in the heated room as well as a ski waxing table. The trail system is well laid out and marked by color discs and numbered waypoints so it’s practically impossible to get lost as long as you have a trail map. Downhill runs are also marked by caution signs and there are alternate trails bypassing the hills. We were there during February and found conditions on the trails as good as can be found anywhere. The trails are all color-coded for difficulty, and one trail (orange) is designated dog-friendly, so you can even take along your best furry friend.
