Exploring in Union County

Attractions in Lewisburg and Mifflinburg

In Union County, the river connects you to one delight after another. What's around the next bend? You'll find out --- eventually. Right now you're lingering at an antique shop loaded with unique finds. And as soon as you can pull yourself away, you'll discover something just as wonderful around the corner. Perhaps it's live history taking place in one of our many museums. Or maybe you'll cross one of our historical covered bridges. Then, there's our reptile zoo, art deco movie palace, State Park, arts and heritage festivals, and another incredible view over the ridge.
