Here in central Pennsylvania, you’ll find covered bridges, tree-sheltered streams and small Victorian towns. The region’s cultural heart is peaceful Johnstown, home to a nationally recognized Folk Fest, the Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art, and a satellite campus of the University of Pittsburgh. Visitors in search of a thrill amid the sedate surroundings can take a ride up the Johnstown Inclined Plane, listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the "steepest vehicular inclined plane in the world." Built in 1891, it still provides a breathtaking view of the city.
