Where to stay in Wilkes-Barre

About Wilkes-Barre

Set on the Susquehanna River, Wilkes-Barre is a paradise for outdoor lovers, offering kayaking, white-water rafting and a huge network of hiking trails. The former coal town was founded in 1770 and is studded with historic architecture, while a flourishing arts scene lures in creative types.

Things to do

Easy access to four state parks makes Wilkes-Barre a top destination for outdoor enthusiasts. The Luzerne County Levee Trail hugs the banks of the Susquehanna River and is a fantastic place to spot local birdlife. Nearby, the Seven Tubs Recreation Area is dotted with crystal-clear streams, cascading waterfalls and lush gorges.

Creativity plays an important role in shaping Wilkes-Barre, with much of the action centred along the "Art Block" on South Main Street. The district is home to the Sordoni Art Gallery, an innovative exhibition space showcasing works from students studying at Wilkes University.

Mohegan Sun Pocono is Pennsylvania's premier destination for casino entertainment. The enormous complex boasts over 2,000 slot machines and almost 100 tables spaced across a 7,600 square-metre gaming floor. You can also enjoy luxury shopping, upscale dining and an indulgent day spa.

Beer lovers can head to Lion Brewery Inc, a local institution that's been pouring pints since 1905. It's housed in a century-old brew house and is known for its full-flavour pilsner brewed with domestic hops. For dinner, make reservations at Cork Bar & Restaurant, a casual bistro serving great food, premium wines and craft cocktails.

Getting around
