Schuylkill County is the hub of the wheel - the center from which you can venture forth for a multitude of activities. World-class shopping, cultural events, restaurants, tourist attractions and recreational activities are all within a few hours’ drive from any point in Schuylkill County.

You can go to historic Philadelphia in the Southeast and shop, visit the tourist attractions or attend a sporting event. There is always some type of event going on with Philadelphia being the home of the Eagles (football), Phillies (baseball), 76ers (basketball) and Flyers (hockey). You can spend the day enjoying the city ­and still be home, safe and snug in your own bed, at the end of the day.

Southwest will land you in Hershey (the sweetest place on earth and home of Hershey Park), the Amish country of Lancaster as well as Harrisburg - our state capital.

Southeast will find you at­ the malls of the Allentown area, as well as Dorney Park. Just beyond Allentown is Historic Bethlehem. Head to the North and visit the many attractions of the Greater Scranton / Wilkes-Barre metropolitan area.

One of the best amusement parks in America is only a short trip. Knoebel’s Amusement Park is consistently rated as one of the best family amusement parks in America, and famous for their hometown attractions and world class wooden roller coasters, with the Phoenix consistently making the top 10 list of wooden roller coasters.

Just a short drive south and you will be in Hamburg - home of Cabela’s - or venture a little further and enjoy the cultural events, food, shopping malls and outlets of the Reading area.

Schuylkill County affords you the opportunity to enjoy the low crime rate and laid back pace of rural living along with the opportunity to enjoy some of the better aspects of metropolitan life.
