Williamsport & the Area

Ranked the 7th fastest growing city in the U.S.

Welcome to Williamsport, a small, uncongested, relaxed city of 35,000 situated in the Susquehanna Valley of the Bald Eagle Mountains. While the Pennsylvania tourist guide refers to the area as the region of "woods, water and wildlife," Williamsport is a bustling center for business, manufacturing, government and finance. Lycoming students are welcomed here. Many take internships and part-time jobs in the city; some even play in the Symphony.

You may already know us--we're the home of Little League Baseball. When in town, catch the spirit of America's homegrown sport at the Little League Museum and World Series complex.

Relive the colorful history of Williamsport's glory days as lumber capital of the world at the Historical Museum or by touring Millionaire's Row of 19th-century homes or the Freedom Road cemetery.

Stop at the 80-store Lycoming Mall or in downtown Williamsport--home to Franco's Lounge, unique finds at Gustonian Gifts and Patinaz, Mark Williams custom jeweler and the best coffee around at Alabaster Coffee Roaster and Tea Co.

Plus, no visit to North Central Pennsylvania is complete without a side trip to the Woolrich Woolen Mills and Outlet Store, the world famous manufacturer of casual and outdoor wear.

Just for fun, you can cheer on the minor league Crosscutters at historic Bowman Field, cruise the Susquehanna River on the Hiawatha paddleboat, tee off at White Deer 45-hole Golf Complex, or take in a touring show at the Community Arts Center. From Bill Cosby to Cats to the Beach Boys--all the best stop here.
