Fall in the northeastern United States is one of the most beautiful seasons on Earth. Students studying English in Pennsylvania at LCI Susquehanna English school will be gifted with an array of autumn activities to enjoy while they study English in the Susquehanna River Valley. Here are five of our favorite ways to experience this lovely time of year.
Red, orange, yellow and gold—view all the colors of fall as the leaves change before winter. The Susquehanna River Valley offers an idyllic setting for exploring the autumn season while you study English in Pennsylvania. From Amish farms to covered bridges, there are plenty of historic and panoramic sites to discover on scenic hikes and driving tours through dense forests of multi-colored leaves!
The American celebration of Halloween involves costumes, candy—and ghosts! Celebrated on October 31, Halloween has long been linked to spirits and specters, and although it’s now mostly a playful association, several towns in central Pennsylvania offer haunted houses and tours of “haunted” buildings. One even includes a trolley ride to the cemetery for a ghost hunt! Enjoy this eerie American tradition when you study English in Pennsylvania in fall.
Festivals are a great way to get to know local people and culture while you study English in the USA. Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania, home to Susquehanna University and LCI English school, commemorates the shift from summer with the annual Market Street Festival, featuring local art and entertainment, food, games, a petting zoo and more!
Pennsylvania is also home to over 150 wineries and more than 10 wine hiking trails—and many vineyards kick off the fall season with harvest celebrations. Enjoy grape stomping, a pig roast and live entertainment at the local Shadow Mountain Winery Harvest Festival, just a short drive from LCI Susquehanna.
Autumn Outdoor Activities
Take advantage of the perfect fall weather to enjoy many of the natural wonders and excursions for which the Susquehanna River Valley is famous. Kayak, canoe, bike, hike, fish, camp and more while you’re studying English in Pennsylvania in autumn! For seasonal outdoor activities, you can get lost in a corn maze or pick your own pumpkins for Halloween!
Visit the most unique haunted “houses” in the US! In celebration of the Halloween holiday, Lincoln Caverns and Penn’s Cave in central Pennsylvania offer spooky flashlight tours, haunted hayrides and trips through natural underground caverns and mines. Explore the crystals and rock formations while being playfully frightened by (pretend) ghouls and goblins.
