During the summer and fall months Wellsboro bustles with tourists of all sorts – hikers, cyclists, shoppers, and more. Those who visit in February find a Wellsboro with its own appeal to visitors who are able to quickly blend right in with the local population.
February can bring snow to Wellsboro, but the amounts vary. When snow is plentiful, winter sports enthusiasts delight. One of the most popular pastimes is certainly cross-country skiing or snowshoeing through the PA Grand Canyon along the groomed Pine Creek Rail Trail, at Hills Creek State Park, or a variety of other spots throughout the region. Snowmobiling is another popular pastime, with a large network of trails available throughout the countryside. For downhill skiing enthusiasts, Ski Sawmill is located 25 minutes from the Penn Wells. Ski Sawmill is a great place for family skiing in a laid back, uncrowded atmosphere and also has terrain to challenge the advanced skier.
When the snow melts, it only makes it easier to get to Wellsboro by car, and a bounty of activities still await. It is a great time to visit local shops and get the personalized attention that our independent retailers are known for. February brings the Festival of Oscar nominated films at the Arcadia Theatre. Stay at the Penn Wells Lodge and get caught up on all the best films you may have missed. February is also Wellsboro’s Winter Celebration weekend with ice and wood carvings, chili tastings, and more. February is also a great time to getaway on the Penn Wells Romance package. Whether Valentine’s weekend or any day, enjoy time with your special someone.
