Exploring in Northumberland County

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 famous amusement park, our heritage festivals, and another incredible view over the ridge.
