A nearby mid-century modern mansion in the woods, waterfalls and water slides to wash off the summer sweat, some of the best whitewater rafting in the eastern United States, and a railroad-turned-bike path that’ll take ya all the way to DC. Yes, there is more but we’ll let you start there! The Youghiogheny River Gorge is the centerpiece of Ohiopyle, where both experienced and beginner rafters flock for an epic float or fight with Ohiopyle’s own Poseidon. A scenic bike path (converted railroad) follows the Yough’s every curve as it continues as the GAP (Great American Passage) that’ll guide ya 355 miles all the way to Washington DC.
30-foot Cucumber Falls is a must. Preferably after a leisurely (or strenuous!) 18-mile bike ride along the Yough. Another must (we know, your calendar is filling up fast) is booking a tour of one of the of the most unique homes in the world, Fallingwater by Frank Lloyd Wright. As the name suggests, the architectural masterpiece was constructed to be one with the landscape, as falling water can be viewed through a channel in the house. Close to major metropolitan areas, and offering a wealth of wanderlust and history, it’s no wonder Ohiopyle attracts millions of stoked adventurers annually!
