State College’s chief draw is the Pennsylvania State University. It’s one of the largest in the US with over 80,000 students and you can wander around the campus at your leisure looking at the fine old buildings and many modern ones too. The students of the university spill out in mid-summer to present the city’s Festival of the Arts, a rousing and riotous affair accompanied by music, food and drink. The city is also renowned for its Independence Day fireworks which attract people from all over the state. Outside the city you can enjoy the beautiful Pennsylvanian countryside by hiring a car in the city.
