Williamsport Travel Guide
Corner of West 4th and Walnut Streets
Little League Baseball playing field
If you like mid-sized towns with beautiful Victorian architecture (and Little League Baseball), you're gonna love it here!
Too many hillbillies and narrow-minded folks.
In a nutshell
Very interesting old town with character and untouched potential.
Ride the Hiawatha! Paddleboat fun!
How often do you get a chance to ride a paddleboat these days? You can here! The Hiawatha is a nifty little Williamsport icon. You can spend a leisurely two hours, chugging up and down the Susquehanna River and listening to a pre-recorded narrative of the history of...
Mom's front garden
Look at the beautiful azaleas and rhododendrons! Each spring the garden comes alive, and soon will overtake the entire house!
My Mom's House!
This charming 3 bedroom house is located on a quiet street not far from the town center. Near schools, a football stadium, and has a large side yard for playing sports.
Home of the Little League World Series, this ballpark is situated on the side of a mountain, with fantastic views of the Susquehanna Valley. A truly inspiring locale for the boys to show their skills.
Little League Baseball Headquarters and Museum
Each August, hundreds of boys from around the world gather in this small town and play their hearts out, in the Little League World Series. What I love about this is that it is truly a 'world' series, with teams from many countries, unlike the so-called Major League World...
Genetti Hotel And Suites
2 Reviews and 126 Opinions OK, first, I have to state that I've never stayed here, but I have seen the rooms and they're great....
33 East: 33 East is the best FINE DINING in the region
the service was fast and really good, the food was chef prepared and just outstanding, the place was very classy inside, the had a cocktail lounge, and banquet facilities.
Parma Proscuitto, Crispy calamari w/ basil infused tomato sauce, Roasted Arctic Char caramelized...
Franco's Lounge: Authentic Italian Food With Cool Ambience, Daddy-O
I'll be writing more soon (I need to do more "research"!), but for now I want to say that the staff are fantastic, the women's restroom is the best-decorated in town (I haven't seen the men's!), the wall of celebrities will get you and your friends talking, and if you...
BullFrog Brewery: Microbrewery....
Interesting Local Brewery with some award winning brews. Better menu than the typical brewery burger joint, very flavorful menu.Centrally located and just across the street from the Genetti Hotel it is a good choice, and often the music is loud so I wouldn't recommend going...
Le Chocolat: Unique Chocolates & Good Conversation
This is an interesting little shop that has a variety of chocolates from around the world and novelty gifts.
The husband and wife team that runs this store is very interesting and are very active members in the community and are full of interesting information about the town.
All items in the store are very fresh and are of excellent quality, located in the downtown area and they can give you additional information about the town.
What to pay: Depends on what you want.

Pennsylvania is the only state I'm aware of that has opening day of the hunting seasons as declared holidays. All businesses get in on the action.

Corner of West 4th & Campbell Streets - EEK!
Just avoid it after dark, especially in front of the sandwich shop/bar entrance on the eastbound side (you'll know you've found the spot I'm talking about when you see the clusters of people just standing there on the sidewalk). This area is notorious for drug activity and...
Confusion Corner - A Driver's Non-Delight!
If you rent a car, be sure to get thee to Brandon Park at some point (and Brandon Perk for coffee!). However, be warned that directly in front of the park entrance is the most ridiculous intersection in town, dubbed "Confusion Corner" by the locals. Three separate roads...
Remember to wear orange, even in the city
Here's an example of a local custom, smack in the middle of the downtown residential area. Rather grim to see, especially while watching children playing right next door.
Rent a Canoe! (Or skis! Or ice skates!)
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...
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....
The surrounding farmlands
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.
North of Williamsport, you enter the Endless Mountains region. The mountain ridges here are very long, since the chain is actually made of a plateau cut away by streams and rivers. During the last few ice ages, the southernmost extent of continental ice sheets reached the...
South Williamsport View, 4/19/06
Five days later, we passed the same viewpoint while heading south. This time the views were truly expansive. The sky was blue, and the trees were budding. If you happen to pass through Williamsport on a clear day, this viewpoint is not to be missed.
South Williamsport View, 4/14/06
We passed through Williamsport while heading north on US 15 on April 14, 2006. Just south of the town, there is a very panoramic viewpoint. However, the weather that day was rainy and thunderstorms, so the views weren't too broad. A good amount of trees were still in...
