America’s only all water cavern and wild life sanctuary! This unique cavern was formed by the bed of a shallow sea that existed millions of years ago. An immense spring of unknown origin flows into the cavern and allows you to ride the one-mile tour entirely by motorboat.
Victorian Bellefonte and the Historical Railroad
Bellefonte is listed on the National Register of Historical Places and has countless Victorian-style buildings. The Bellefonte Historical Railroad operates from the restored Pennsylvania Railroad Station and charters more than 60 miles of track.
This village provides a glimpse of iron-works plantation life in the 1800s. A refurbished iron-master’s mansion contrasts with the restored iron-workers log cabin. The rebuilt, charcoal-fueled, water powered blast furnace preserves the heritage of Pennsylvania’s metal industry.
