Automobiles, Exhibits, and Trails in Cumberland Valley

By Jessica Metcalf

If you are a lover of outdoor recreation, history, and even classic automobiles, then the Cumberland Valley in Pennsylvania is a perfect spot for you! Nestled within a 2-3 hour drive of major cities like Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington D.C., Pittsburgh and New York City, Cumberland Valley is a hotspot for hikers, nature lovers, artists and more!

“The Valley is a perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle,” says resident Kristen Rowe, Communications Manager at the Cumberland Valley Visitors Bureau. “Visitors can enjoy a relaxing weekend in the mountains or in a cozy downtown bed and breakfast.” The Valley provides a great setting for a peaceful day hike, a night out on the town at a great restaurant, or a day of shopping.

The Valley is also known for its nine annual auto events that are held at the Carlisle Fairgrounds each year. On this 150-acre land, the auto shows bring in almost 500,000 people! There are more specialized shows for Ford, Chrysler, and many other models, as well as a massive swap meet and auction, import and kit cars, and more.
