Pennsylvania’s Outdoors Haven

About 60 miles southeast of Pittsburgh and just north of West Virginia and Maryland, Farmington is a year-round retreat nestled among the rolling hills of Pennsylvania’s Laurel Highlands. Well-known as the home of the expansive Nemacolin Woodlands Resort & Spa, Farmington is also a gateway to some of the most enticing outdoor adventures on the East Coast, like whitewater rafting and miles of hiking trails within Ohiopyle State Park. The Youghiogheny River—or “Yough” for short—offers everything from calm family floats to rushing rapids for only the most advanced rafters. And in Pennsylvania’s largest cave, Laurel Caverns, more than 4 miles of passages wait to be explored.
