Wilkes-Barre is a city in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the county seat of Luzerne County. Your inner history buff will appreciate Asa Packer Mansion and Ephrata Cloister. Get some cultural insight at Mount Hope Estate & Winery, home of the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire and Grey Towers National Historic Site. Explore Wilkes-Barre's surroundings by going to Cabela's (in Hamburg), Hershey (AACA Museum, Inc., The Hershey Story, & more) and Bushkill Falls (in Bushkill). There's still lots to do: identify plant and animal life at Hawk Mountain Sanctuary, try your luck at Mohegan Sun Pocono, take in the views from Erbs Covered Bridge, and take in the dramatic scenery at Ricketts Glen State Park.

To see traveler tips, maps, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Wilkes-Barre online day trip planner .

In October in Wilkes-Barre, expect temperatures between 65°F during the day and 45°F at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 20th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
