We go to the Liberty Bell Shrine and the Lehigh County Historical Society for day trips a lot. For $7 it's a steal! Hershey if we have a free Saturday. We enjoy Lancaster as well...last Lancaster trip we saw a run away buggy

We like to go to Presque Isle for the day..there is so much to do there!

Also, we go to Pittsburgh and hang out with the girls.  they like to just walk around and visit the shops, museums, etc.

 usually we go geocaching at a state park. Hillside farm is fun too.

There are tons of great day trip spots in the Pittsburgh area.  This summer alone we've been to the Pittsburgh Zoo, the Carnegie Science Center, a Pittsburgh Pirates game, a Washington WildThings game, Fort Necessity, Raccoon Creek State Park, Shenango River Dam and Rec area, plus quite a few community parks.

I live very close to Fort Necessity.  We love going there!
