A museum of eclectic items and a video tour runs continuously for those not physically capable of... More

It is a bit of a misnomer in that it is not a "city" at all, but rather a geological reserve of very interesting and huge rock formations left from the ice age period. Many of the formations have names. You get to walk on small paths over very... More

quiet serine, and yet not really park like, just a nice place to walk and talk. hilly terrain so bring good hiking shoes. and pack food and drinks. more like a nature trail than a state park

We stopped here as part of our trip to northwest PA. Very nice place for a family hike, although there are some areas that require some effort, with very interesting formations. and history. it is not for the mobility impaired, but my wife says the video did an excellent job of showing what she could otherwise not see. We would... More
