Travel tip: Plan your 2019 vacation with the ‘Happy Traveler’ guide

Shirley McMarlin
The 2019 “Happy Traveler” guide from the Pennsylvania Tourism Office gives information on the state’s amusement parks in a section titled “Joy Rides.” Here, riders celebrate the 90th anniversary of the Racer at Kennywood in West Mifflin in 2017.

Vacation planning can be a little easier with the 2019 “Happy Traveler” guide from the Pennsylvania Tourism Office.

The annual guide lists fun-filled attractions, historic haunts and outdoor sites across Pennsylvania to help visitors plan their vacation bucket lists.

In a section titled “Joy Rides,” the guide explores the state’s amusement parks, many of which are more than 100 years old.

There also are sections on food and drink, arts and artists, country markets, spectacular waterfalls and other natural wonders, to name a few.

You also can use the guide to “lace up your sneakers, zip up your cardigan and follow in the footsteps of a Pennsylvania legend” — Mister Rogers, of course.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
