Seniors Discover Washington County

I just received the 80-page 2013 Official Destination Guide on Washington County, PA. It is full of information that senior travelers will enjoy. They quote, “Bring the energy. Bring yourself.”  Senior visitors will discover 21 covered bridges still standing. They seem to be everywhere. And you’ll find just over 200,000 happy folks living in Washington County .

My wife and I would always choose to head for the center of any city first to discover it’s treasures and historical significance. Washington is no different. This illustration will point out some of the major sites to visit. Senior travelers can send for a Washington Coungy Destination Guide or even better yet, thumb through it online and you’ll see what I reviewed.

Senior Historians Attracted to Washington County

The historic Washington County Courthouse is one historic building among many in this county.  Washington County is the home of the PONY Baseball and Softball International Headquarters and is the home of the Pennsylvania Trolley Museum. It’s also famous for its Rock Shelters at Meadowcroft Village, which are some of the best preserved and oldest Pre-Clovis Native American dwellings in the country.

The Whiskey Rebellion culminated in Washington. The home of David Bradford, one of the rebellions leaders, is located in Washington and is a national landmark. Just a couple blocks away is the F. Julius LeMoyne House, also declared a National Historic Landmark, which serves as the headquarters of the Washington County Historical Society. Their Roots Web is fun to explore if you are interested in geneology.

So put some of these on your itinerary and plan on staying a few days in Washington County PA. I even found a very nice hotel for senior citizens to consider called, strangely enough, the George Washington Hotel. And you oenophiles, the C.T. Miller Vineyards might add a few hours onto your stay.

You’ll find out that you can play, shop, dine, stay and even live in Washington. It’s all there. Washington County looks like a good one to be on my “bucket list”.  jeb
