Armstrong County Tourist Bureau

Picture rolling hills, farmlands and forests of maple, oak, cherry and beech and you are envisioning Armstrong County. Located within an hour's drive of Pittsburgh, the county has ample room for activities and events to suit every interest. Armstrong County's most popular attraction is its scenery. Sweeping views of the western Pennsylvania countryside and the Allegheny & Kiskiminetas River valleys delight young and old alike as do the numerous small towns and villages.

The county is known for its recreational opportunities. Three major lakes, in addition to the Allegheny & Kiskiminetas Rivers, and numerous small streams provide a variety of boating and fishing experiences. The Allegheny River is home to nearly every species of fish found in Pennsylvania and is considered to be one of the best walleye rivers in the east. Large and small game abound in the five state-managed game lands located in the county. Bicyclists, hikers and equestrians enjoy the county's trail network for afternoon outings, weekend trips and pleasure and endurance rides.

From the Amish in the northeastern corner of the county to the pewter-like "statesmetal" forged in the southwestern corner and everyplace in between, Armstrong County's rich history and heritage will entertain and delight you. Come. Play! Discover…the Heart of Western Pennsylvania.
