Our area is filled with the best that Pennsylvania has to offer. CentralPennsylvania.Online is your guide to the heart of Pennsylvania.
The communities of Central Pennsylvania are situated in one of the most beautiful places in the nation. Like the gentle flow of the Juniata River (shown here), our pace is relaxed. Amish farms line the roads of many of our valleys, and their horse drawn buggies are a common sight on our streets. Ridges and valleys define our diverse geography, except in the north where high plateaus are home to sprawling forests, abundant game and the wild elk herd.
The relaxed pace doesn’t mean boring – exciting and unique events fill the local social calendar. Here you will find everything from roaring crowds, 110,000+ strong, filling Happy Valley every fall – to the best dirt track racing on the east coast. Fairs, festivals, and flea markets make the warmer months fun and social. Lakes, rivers, state parks and forests offer everyone the ideal socially-distanced destination. Active sport enthusiasts will love our endurance trail challenges (among the best in the nation), triathlons and biking events. Recharge your batteries with live music, summer theatre, wine and ale trails, regattas and hooskows.
A strong and steady economic foundation provides the engine that drives us into the future. Home to world-class businesses, educational powerhouses and cutting edge innovators, our communities are the perfect location for any business looking for a launchpad.
Central Pennsylvania Online is the perfect resource for local residents interested in learning what is beyond the horizon of your neighborhood, businesses looking to source suppliers within a manageable distance and visitors interested in learning about the perfect non-destination destination. Our partners, advertisers and online publications will provide you with free access to the best our region has to offer.
