“Small Town Pennsylvania”
Take a behind-the-scenes look at life in Pennsylvania’s 67 counties with this pictorial guide of attractions and events. Learn fascinating trivia about each of these small towns.
Atglen P.A. — Small towns are the best kept secret of any state and Pennsylvania is no exception. They have a unique charm, but what do we really know about them? The iconic Liberty Bell is a much visited tourist attraction, but what about visiting the seven-foot-wide Squeeze-In Restaurant in Sunbury, or the Chainsaw Carving Rendezvous in Ridgway? Have you met Rosé Ribbett, the grape-stomping frog from North East? Travel to Pennsylvania's small towns and get acquainted with the lesser-known, but no less interesting, side of the Keystone State. Along the way, you'll find "Muffler Men," a lighthouse in the forest, jumping fish, roadside art, dazzling views, and much more. Sometimes unconventional, sometimes lighthearted, sometimes irreverent, this photographic journey is both delightful and educational; a must-have keepsake for local residents, tourists, and historians.
