Things To Do In State College & Centre County

We know you want to be part of the PSU experience by visiting Happy Valley, Pennsylvania!

The most beautiful countryside in Pennsylvania! There are so many things to do in and near State College, PA the only thing you'll have to worry about is how to fit it all in! Go explore and branch out to surrounding communities such as Bellefonte, Boalsburg or others to expand on your adventures. What is nice about our community is that you can be having lunch downtown one moment and within 20 minutes you could be out on a remote hiking trail or mountain bike adventure. 

Catching the big Penn State Football game is only the beginning of all the great attractions and recreation you'll find in Centre County. You'll be amazed at the historic sites and tours, arts and entertainment, outdoor recreation like hiking and mountain biking and, of course, world-class fishing streams.
