Planning Your Visit

As you plan your visit to Grier, be sure to reference our suggestions below to find a list of recommended hotels and restaurants.  Also consider leaving room in your schedule to enjoy downtown State College, home to Penn State University, just as our students do on the weekends.  You will find great restaurants and boutiques to compliment a busy calendar of events to enjoy.

While State College offers the greatest variety of hotels, restaurants, and activities, families traveling from the west or south may find it more convenient to stay in Altoona.
