Once an industrail town that attracted artists, to its stone farmhouses, barns and mills, New Hope has transitioned into a favorite spot of tourists with a heritage profound in its roots in theater, art and the antiques trade.
It’s not just a spot for weekenders and couples on leaf-peeping trips, however, as its proximity to Philadelphia and New Jersey make it a popular spot for meetings and events.
Where to Stay
Corporations and businesses are often thinking of ways to lift employee morale and bring a workforce closer together, and one way to make that happen is by bringing the employees to a team-building activity at one of the many camps located throughout the state of Pennsylvania.
These camps offer a great way for people to learn to better communicate and work alongside one another effectively. Through these fun, out-of-the-office activities, employees can view one another in a different light and connect in a setting outside of work.
East Liberty is fully recharged. Nestled in Pittsburgh’s East End about 5 miles outside of downtown, the neighborhood’s energy is fueled by huge investments from the technology industry and grounded in a resilient community. East Liberty once rivaled downtown as a booming retail, transportation and culture center where the area’s elites and industrialists built grand homes and public buildings in the early 1900s to escape the city. But when suburbs began to lure residents away in the 1950s, failed attempts to retain population ended up crippling East Liberty’s economy and vibrancy.
State College is best known as the home of Penn State University, a renowned college famous for its Nittany Lions football team. But anyone who heads to central Pennsylvania will discover that there is much more to this college town than just its campus.
Whether they’re interested in sports, culture or history, visitors are sure to find plenty to do in State College. Its charming downtown offers shopping, a thriving restaurant scene and nightlife. Its location makes it ideal for companies that are organizing an event involving individuals from different parts of the state.
Just outside of Philadelphia, Valley Forge & Montgomery County is booming. “The Valley Forge region offers meeting planners versatility when selecting their meeting venues,” says Marc Kaminetsky, director of convention and tourism sales at the Valley Forge Convention & Tourism Board. “From full-service hotels to conference centers, the region has something for everyone. Montgomery County specializes in creating a memorable experience for all of your meeting attendees.”
Known as America's most historic square mile, Old City Philadelphia is flush with great architecture, timeless shops and a fascinating backstory. It also offers some wonderful meeting space that allows corporations and groups to enjoy a little history while they work.
