Each season in Cumberland Valley promises an endless array of experiences for the ultimate weekend getaway, but it’s during the fall that this region truly comes alive. Now is the perfect time to plan a vibrant escape brimming with festivals, food, fun, and more.
Whether you are seeking out a breathtaking view, looking to recharge along a quiet path, meander through a corn maze, find dazzling fall foliage, or savor craft beverages, enjoy a weekend getaway amid the quiet beauty of south-central Pennsylvania, just a short two-hour drive from Philadelphia. Your weekend is calling.
Cumberland Valley is also a flyfisher’s paradise featuring some of the world’s most sought-after fly-fishing hotspots including the Yellow Breeches Creek, LeTort Spring Run, and Big Spring Creek Greenway. Stay at Allenberry Resort, one of only three Orvis-certified fly-fishing lodges in Pennsylvania. Nearby, TCO Outdoors has all your hiking and fly-fishing needs.
After an unforgettable day of outdoor adventure, reinvigorate your taste buds and experience the unique flavors of locally-crafted beers, wines, ciders, and spirits at over 30 locations along the Cumberland Valley Beer Trail. Sign up for a free digital passport, check-in at participating locations, and start earning prizes. You will be impressed with the year-round seasonal releases, but for many, fall is the best time to enjoy some fantastic pours.
This weekend is about you, so choose your locations based on your tastes and preferences: dine inside or outdoors; try a new beer style or order distilled spirits instead; listen to live music or find a quiet, intimate location for two; or enjoy a Sunday brunch or a post-hike happy hour.
Cumberland Valley’s hotels fit every style and budget. From luxurious lodging, to comfortable and conveniently located brand hotels, to intimate and unique bed and breakfasts, your accommodations promise a perfect home base for your getaway.
