Visit one of the "Most Charming Small Towns in America" when you travel a short three hours from Philadelphia to explore the history, shops, and natural beauty surrounding Ligonier.
Approximately three hours from Philadelphia, Ligonier makes you feel worlds away from life’s responsibilities. The sweet little town with an adorable little diamond-shaped town square was called by Country Living as one of “The Most Charming Small Towns in America.” There is a lot of history including Fort Ligonier, as the town was settled in the 1760s.
There are a variety of fun kid-friendly options for food and treats ranging from ice cream at the Ligonier Creamery, pizza at Jioio’s, and a candy store (O'Shea's Candies & Artisan Chocolate). For an old-fashioned diner experience, check out Ruthy’s Diner, a local favorite. Duck into Tree House, a fabulous children’s toy and clothing store at some point, it’s a memorable little boutique that’s been around a long time.
You can also find sandwiches, coffee, and snacks at Abigail’s Coffeehouse and sandwich shop which is conveniently located on the town square for your breakfast and lunch needs. Take picnic food to go when heading to explore one of the nearby state parks. Great camping options are available at Linn Run State Park & Laurel Summit State Park where you will also find a variety of easy to moderate hiking trails.
