State College Featured on National Geographic
State College is reppin’ on National Geographic’s online “Adventure Town” series, which features 100 cities and towns all across the country worth visiting. Happy Valley came in at No. 88 on the list and is one of only two PA cities to make the cut.
The profile lists the best places to “eat, play, and sleep” in our town. “Ah, to be young and live in a rugged corner of the Alleghenies. Eighteen- to-24-year-olds make up nearly two-thirds of this Penn State playground’s population—the rest just act that age. Grads land gigs at the gear shops and outfitters among the tap rooms and taverns here, and the Happy Valley continues living up to its name,” Nat Geo writes.
The profile lists the Waffle Shop, Kelly’s Steak House*, and Zeno’s as must-visit eateries and bars in the area. It also lists trout fishing, tailgating, and farming as the bee’s knees of activities in State College. You can check out the full profile here.
*Boalsburg shouldn’t count.
