Visit Scranton

Scranton is a city situated in northeast Pennsylvania. This place makes for a great day trip, where you can learn more about the Industrial Revolution and enjoy some great food.

Scranton is nicknamed The Electric City. It received this name from the revolution of electric lights that began at the Dickson Manufacturing Company in 1880. The city then was the first place in the country to have electric-powered streetcars.

The Steamtown National Historic Site is a free-to-enter park that catalogs the role steam engines and the workers who maintained them played in the American Industrial Revolution. This family-friendly site has an activity everyone will enjoy.

The Pennsylvania Anthracite Heritage Museum is another excellent place to learn about the Industrial Revolution. Here, the focus is Pennsylvania's main export: coal. The museum narrates the ups and downs of workers and companies during this time.

After a long day of fun in Scranton, try one of its many highly-rated eateries. Cooper's Seafood House, Backyard Ale House, Viewmont Diner, and Ipanema Grille are a selection of the diverse options available.
