The “chimney” of Pennsylvania might be one of the state’s most versatile regions. Large cities, a great lake, colleges and universities, open woods, beaches and historic lake and farm houses all make up the face of this region.

Highlights of Northwestern Pennsylvania

Lake Erie

Arguably Pennsylvania’s greatest natural resource, Lake Erie has the charm of a small Midwestern lake and the size of, well, a great lake. Beaches, parks and lakeside homes all make Lake Erie a sight to behold.

Presque Isle

One of the main attractions along the shore of Lake Erie, Presque Isle State Park offers an undisturbed shoreline full of native wildlife species.

Downtown Erie

Resurgent, reinvented and reinvigorated have all been used to describe downtown Erie. Home to several professional sports teams, cultural institutions and large companies, downtown Erie is the state’s fourth-largest city.

Small Colleges and Universities

Northwestern Pennsylvania is home to no fewer than five colleges and universities including large urban campuses and small rural liberal arts schools.
