While Noxen offers plenty of old town charm surrounded by scenic mountains and countryside, there are also plenty of other beautiful towns and municipalities nearby, and there's no shortage of sights and activities to keep you busy.  Head a dozen miles north to Tunkhannock to catch Pennsylvania's Historic Route 6, (part of the nationwide span that stretches from coast to coast).  While you're there, check out some of the great local wineries or the restored Dietrich Theater.  Or, take a hot air balloon ride over Northeastern Pennsylvania.  Head to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton area for sporting events including Penguins ice hockey and RailRiders AAA baseball, plus auto racing at Pocono Raceway.  For more entertainment options you can check out concerts and shows at the Mohegan Sun Arena, the F.M. Kirby Center for the Performing Arts, and The Pavilion at Montage.  For winter fun, there's skiing at Montage Mountain, Elk Mountain, or Jack Frost/Big Boulder.

Still other attractions include the Lackawanna County Coal Mine Tour, the Lion Brewery, and the Everhart Museum.  There's also hiking, fishing, hunting, boating - plenty for the outdoor enthusiast.

There are plenty of great colleges and universities in the area as well, including King's College, Luzerne County Community College, Marywood University, Misericordia University, Penn State University's Wilkes-Barre and Worthington Scranton campuses, Wilkes University, and the University of Scranton
