These Are the ‘Prettiest’ Towns in Pennsylvania
So many towns in Pennsylvania are simply delightful. Some could even be called pretty. I think it’s so charming to find a little town that’s pretty, with local shops and gorgeous landscapes. What’s not to like about it? Now, a new study is out naming the “prettiest” towns in Pennsylvania.
World Atlas has come out with a list of the 11 prettiest towns in Pennsylvania. They say that these special areas “exude an inviting ambiance that makes exploration a delight.” So true. They add, “Meander through cobbled streets lined with quaint boutiques, art galleries, and cozy cafes that offer delectable local delicacies.” They also mention that many of these towns have a rich history. The entire state of Pennsylvania is actually pretty. We’re known for our history.
The first town that World Atlas highlights is Gettysburg. They call it a “captivating town that offers a poignant journey into American history. Renowned for the pivotal Civil War battle, visitors can explore the Gettysburg National Military Park, which preserves the battlegrounds and offers guided tours that vividly narrate the events of the past.” Let’s not forget the cozy streets with local shops, boutiques and more. Next, World Atlas sings the praises of Milford. They really like the art community in Milford. I’m a painter, so I love a good art area. “The town boasts a vibrant arts community, and art lovers will delight in exploring the numerous galleries, notably the Artery Fine Art & Craft Gallery and Golden Fish Art Gallery, that showcase works of local and regional artists,” they state.
Other cities highlighted in the list include Johnstown, Easton, New Hope, Franklin and more. So, if you’re thinking of doing a vacation this spring or summer that doesn’t require a lot of travel, give these spots a try. Moreover, find the full list via World Atlas here.
