Shopping

What better way to start your day than with some green recreation and by “green” we mean money! Or do your share of recycling and use that plastic credit card over and over again! Antiques. Local art. Pottery. Handmade jewelry. Homegrown produce. Homemade baked goods. Regional wine. The Susquehanna River Valley has it all and on any budget. Take some time to stroll through our historic downtowns where you'll discover distinct boutiques, one-of-a kind gifts and treats, or take a scenic drive through the countryside. Click here to begin planning your shopping spree!

Antiquing

If you're searching for that special knick-knack, collectible piece of furniture, or priceless estate jewelry, look no further than the Susquehanna River Valley. With so many antique mills, barns, and unique shops in the region, our Antiquing brochure makes planning a fun roadtrip with the girls easy. Contact the SRVVB to request a copy of the latest brochure. No wonder antique dealers from D.C. and Baltimore buy here – the prices are that good!

Wineries

Had an exhausting afternoon of shopping? What better way to take a break than to stop by one of our amazing area vintners to sample their delicious wines? Wine tasting and vineyard tours have become the most popular pastimes for fans of the vine. Lucky wine enthusiasts will discover that Shade Mountain Winery & Vineyard, Spyglass Ridge Winery, Fero Vineyard & Winery, Four Friends Vineyard & Winery, and Hunters Valley Winery offer some of the best wines in the commonwealth.

Chocolates, Sweets, and Ice Cream

If death must be by chocolate, what a wonderful way to go! After indulging in shopping and wine-tasting, one must cleanse the palate with something sweet… ideally chocolate. Be sure to stop by Purity Candy in Allenwood or downtown Lewisburg where the treats are made from the original 1907 recipes and dipped by hand. Have each one of your girlfriends buy a different chocolate treat for your very own chocolate buffet and enjoy some sweet sampling!  

If ice cream is your method of satisfying a sweet tooth, stop by Amy’s Frosty Freeze, Sweet Frog Frozen Yogurt Shop, or Tastecraft Cafe All are perfect spots for a refreshing cool treat that will make you feel like a little girl again.

Go Wild!

Come and enjoy the great outdoors! If you and your girls are the outdoorsy type, the river is your gateway to an endless amount of fishing, canoeing, and kayaking. Call ahead to Bic's Watersports and Outdoor Adventures who will provide transportation to designated drop-off locations on the Susquehanna so patrons can enjoy some relaxing time on the water. Upon return, relax on lounge chairs or hammocks located around on-site firepits.  You can also enjoy more than 4,700 acres of some of the most beautiful forests and parks in the state to explore, hike, mountain bike, and camp.  The Susquehanna River Valley is becoming nationally recognized as cycling destination. For a leisurely ride through beautiful Central Pennsylvania farmlands and quaint downtowns the Buffalo Valley Rail Trail is the perfect starting point. Rent bikes from Earl’s Bicycle Store to explore the 9-mile-long trail that stretches between Lewisburg and Mifflinburg. Visit the Susquehanna River Valley website for a list of other bicycle routes in the SRV
