I'm going to be spending quit a bit of time in the Wilkes-Barre / Scranton, Pennsylvania area over the next few months. I will be busy during the day, but will likely have some free time to kill in the afternoons, evenings, and occasionally on the weekends. So, MeFites... what do I do? Good places to eat, shop, sightsee, tour, etc.?
Additional info about me:
- I'm from the Deep South, and haven't traveled in the Northeast at all (outside of a few brief trips to NYC)
- I will have a rental car
- I love the outdoors, but am somewhat limited in what I can do, due to a recent knee surgery. Should be back to full speed in a month or so.
- I may have the option of staying over on the weekends. Is the area close enough to big cities (Philly, NYC, etc.) to justify traveling in on the weekends?
- Anything I need to know, generally, about the history, demographics, culture (or lack thereof) of the area?
