Pennsylvania Attractions

Penn State University

Established in 1855, Penn State University is one of the largest and most exceptional public colleges in Pennsylvania.

Travel to the central region of the state and visit State College, home of Penn State. You can embark on a campus tour, check out the area highlights, or enjoy some college sports action. 

Penn State has campuses across the state, but the flagship campus is found in State College. A major draw at Penn State is the athletics department. The Penn State Nittany Lions compete within the Big Ten Conference across a wide range of sports.

On your next visit, head to the Pegula Ice Arena for Nittany Lions hockey, Beaver Stadium for football, and the Bryce Jordan Center for basketball.

University Park Airport

The Happy Valley area of central Pennsylvania is not only home to Pennsylvania State University, but also a fine airport. The University Park Airport was established in the 1950s, on land that was leased from the university, north of State College.

In 1972, Penn State took over the management of the airport and its property. Throughout the years, the airport expanded with a terminal building, a general aviation hangar and renovations to the runway.

The fixed based operator located at the airport provides charter services, flight instruction, hangar rental space, a pilot's lounge, conference rooms, catering, aircraft maintenance, aircraft fuel and pilot supplies. Three commercial airlines provide commercial flights to Detroit, Wasshington-Dulles, and Philadelphia.
