Visit Harmarville, a small, historic community in Harmar Township, Pennsylvania, and enjoy the unspoiled beauty and quiet, sleepy atmosphere of an old farming town on the mighty Allegheny River. The defining landmark of the locale is Allegheny Islands State Park, a trio of wooded mounds that interrupt the wide river's eternal flow. Step out from one of the riverfront hotels in Harmarville, PA and gaze upon these natural treasures; they'll be the postcard picture of your memorable wanderings along the Allegheny.
Stay in one of the Harmarville hotels and find yourself at the confluence of mighty waterways that have defined the way of life in the rural community since its founding. Many generations before you looked out over the same scene you see today. And like those before you, you'll have to take to the water if you want to experience those wooded, and still-wild islands up close. With a boat rental, pull up to your own private beach, explore groves of sycamores and maples, and enjoy a silence broken only by the roar of the Allegheny. Sit and spot birds and beavers, or drop a line and wait as long as you desire to reel in a bite. Another way to visit one of these islands is to arrange Harmarville rental cars and drive along the Pennsylvania Turnpike, which traverses a bridge over the central island.
Journey downriver instead and check in at one of our Pittsburgh, PA hotels. You've probably heard that Pittsburgh has more bridges than Venice, but traversing a few of them will give you a new appreciation for the significance of that often-cited fact. Beholding three mighty rivers that meander through Pittsburgh's urban uprisings, see the physical manifestation of the city's connection with the wilderness and be reminded that nature remains omnipotent.
River town treasures await you outside Pittsburgh. Book Harmarville, PA hotels with Travelocity to discover them, and maybe even discover a new side of yourself. As the Greek philosopher Heraclitus mused: "No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it's not the same river and he's not the same man."
