Williamsport Things to Do

  • 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 Williamsport's logging boom. (The recording is kind of hard to hear, especially if...

  • 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.

    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 appreciate garlic, this is the place to go!The decor reminds me of what I imagine...

  • 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 if you are planning on having a deep conversation during your meal.

    Le Chocolat: Unique Chocolates & Good Conversation

    by riotgirlpeeps Written Oct 18, 2004

    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.

Williamsport Warnings and Dangers

  • Corner of West 4th & Campbell Streets -...

    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 other antisocial behavior. It's not too bad in the daytime, though... Don't...

  • Confusion Corner - A Driver's...

    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 (Rural Ave., Market Street, Hepburn Street), plus the one that leads into the...

  • Remember to wear orange, even in the...

    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.


Williamsport Off The Beaten Path

  • 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 the equipment for a couple of hours or a whole WEEK (ask about the 100...

  • Graveyard Walk

    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...

  • 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.


Williamsport Favorites

  • Endless Mountains

    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 Endless Mountain Region. Some of the highlights in the area are Wellsboro, US...

  • 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 leafless winter. After about 5 days in New York State, we started heading back...
