Williamsport, Pennsylvania is a charming city that's also the birthplace of Little League Baseball. Immerse in its artsy vibe and Victorian architecture, and an interesting history dating back to the 1700s. The city experienced a lumber boom in the 19th century and then its growth slowed down a bit, so it feels like it has stood still in time—in a good way! Today, Williamsport is a quiet city with an old-town feel and also home to both Pennsylvania College of Technology and Lycoming College.
