Many of the County Links
on the left will keep you specifically in Sunbury and Northumberland County in the Susquehanna Valley
of PA. We add new listings and links on a regular basis.
Northumberland County is located about an hour north of Harrisburg along the Susquehanna River in the heart of the Susquehanna Valley. Northumberland's most visible attributes are its waterways and forests. Streamside, anglers enjoy some of the best fishing on the East coast. The West Branch of the Susquehanna is recognized as a superb bass fishery while smaller streams, like White Deer and Penn's Creek as excellent trout streams.
Boating on the Susquehanna has become popular and the Fish Commission has developed access ramps at many locations along the river. The impoundment of the north and west branches of the Susquehanna at Sunbury is a busy boating area complete with marina and boat rentals.
Hunters flock to this region each fall to stalk whitetail deer, black bear and wild turkey. Increasingly more and more people are taking advantage of opportunities to stalk wildlife with cameras instead of rifles and shotguns.

With the beuatiful weather it's time to be thinking "outdoors"! So we put together something for you called our PA Hiking page. It's basically a sampling of the information you can find in any PA county under our "What to do" category. After tasting the sample start hitting the various regions and counties. One of our favorite things is "rafting" in Fayette County. You'll find Fayette County in southwestern PA. If the names of the counties intimidate you try finding things by towns. This feature will take you to the right county. Try it! You can't get lost and you will be pleasantly surprised.
