Rich in history, abundant in beauty and offering a vast array of diverse attractions, the Keystone State is a great place to go hunting for out-of-the-way treasures. This updated guide has culled over 200 fascinating lesser-known sites from Pennsylvania's vast expanse, including the town of Good Intent, where they never got around to creating a Main Street, the Cathedral of Learning and its 19 nationality classrooms, and Walnut Acres, whose owners were organic farmers and environmentalists 50 years ahead of the movement.
