3 retired people plan to visit Falling Waters/Kentucky Knob in early August. We will have some free time and would like to know what activities are available. We like hiking, theater, art, historic sites. I am not able to find a simple guide to the area on line listing activities in the area. Can someone point me to a web site?

Ligonier is in the Laurel Highlands. Here is the link to their website:

http://www.laurelhighlands.org/

Do be sure to check distances on a map, as it is quite a large region.

The Lincoln Highway (Rt 30) also is in the area. They have some info about the area as well:

Of course you will probably like Fort Ligonier:

I hope this helps! It is a lovely area.

Kentuck Knob and Falling Water are about 3 miles west and 4 mile north of Ohiopyle, respectively. If you want to do some hiking, Ohiopyle is a good place. There's very easy walking on the Great Allegheny Passage (a rail trail that follows the Youghiogheny River in the Ohiopyle area), and plenty of real hiking nearby. You can rent bikes (or bring your own, of course) and ride on the rail trail, and you can take a very easy rafting trip on the middle Yough or a more challenging trip on the Lower Yough if you want a bit of excitement.

While the Laurel highlands encompasses a fairly large region, Ohiopyle is only about 35 miles from Ligonier, so you could see both Kentuck Knob and falling Water and be in Ligonier by mid-afternoon if you wanted.

If you are interested in art be sure to stop at the Southern Alleghenies Museum in Ligonier, it just off Route 30 on route 711. Here is the web address http://www.sama-art.org/museum/location/ligonier.htm

We had an absolutely wonderful visit and are ready to return. 2 full days was not enough time for the area.
