My boyfriend and I rented a canoe from one Mr. Brad Bubb, a very nice gentleman, and enjoyed a fantastic afternoon in the water and sunshine. Apparently, Mr. Bubb also rents cross country ski equipment and ice skates for those colder days. His rates are good and you can rent the equipment for a couple of hours or a whole WEEK (ask about the 100 mile trip!).
What struck me the most about his service was that he met us at the landing dock where we'd be ending our trip, then DROVE US to the place where we'd be starting and helped us get the boat in the water! Not only that, he also gave us some good pointers on interesting things to look for and the easiest route to take. Great stuff!
Tourist-y things are great, but getting away from the fray for the day is MUCH better!
Williamsport has an immense cemetary. There are some very beautiful vaults and statues to be found in it. It sits on top of one of the low mountains and has an excellent view of the town below.
One local merchant told me that there was 26 miles of road in the cemetary alone. And there are gravestones from the early 1800's as well as several civil war grave stones.
Within a half hour of Williamsport are small roads leading into the farmlands, with picturesque barns and silos, and beautiful creeks and mountains. It is well worth the time to take a drive in any direction.
This creek just northeast of Williamsport is where I spent my summer days growing up. Beautiful mountains and crystal clear water, and my brother and I challenging each other to see who could hold their breath the longest underwater.
