Set against the scenic backdrop of Pennsylvania’s Allegheny Mountains, Altoona is a historic railroading town. Its famous Horseshoe Curve fascinates even those who are not great train enthusiasts and gives the town the look of a miniature train set that has sprung to life. Visitors come to tour the Railroaders Memorial Museum and to ride the world’s oldest roller coaster, built in 1902, which still operates in Altoona’s Lakemont Park.

Just outside of Altoona is DelGrosso’s Amusement Park, which keeps fun accessible with free parking and entry. Those who do not wish to ride the attractions or splash in the water park may spend the day strolling through the park’s shops, dining at its restaurants, or simply people-watching.

The Blue Knob All-Seasons Resort is a 35-minute drive from Altoona, and here you’ll find great skiing on what has been billed as the “highest skiable mountain with the most challenging slopes in Pennsylvania, with the longest and sweetest rides for skiers and snowboarders.” In warmer months, the resort is also great for golfing. The entire Allegheny region is a preferred destination for hiking, biking, and whitewater rafting.  

When you’re ready to come back indoors, you’ll have the entertainment of the Altoona Symphony Orchestra, the Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art, and the live stage productions of Mishler Theater. The Penn State–Altoona campus provides the community with special events throughout the year at its Misciagna Family Center for Performing Arts.

Altoona offers excellent public and private schools and is located just 2 hours from Pittsburgh; 3 hours from Baltimore and Washington, DC; 4 hours from Philadelphia; and 5 hours from New York City.
