Philipsburg is a borough in Centre County, Pennsylvania.
It does not take much to see all of the delights Centre County's villages, historic site, and shops have to offer, such as superb local cider, beer, spirits and wine that can be purchased on the Central PA Tasting Trail. Experiences such as theatrical performances or athletic events can be found in facilities ranging from small to large, depending on preference.
Centre County is bursting with beauty in any given season. Step into an ocean of greens in the spring, a carpet of gold, orange and apple red leaves in the autumn, or a beautifully frosted countryside, in the winter. There are numerous ways to travel across the area and savor its beauty, such as land (foot, car, bicycle, and even chariot) water (kayak, canoe, and other vessels) and air (glider, plane, and hot air balloon.)
Our attractions take you from high in the sky in a glider plane to down underground in one of a few caverns. You will not be left wanting for things to do in and near State College, Boalsburg, Bellefonte or other towns within Centre County as you build your itinerary. If you want to relax to have a drink, check out the Central PA Tasting Trail for unique and local beverages.
If sports are your go-to, Penn State competes in the NCAA and Big Ten Conference and the State College Spikes play in short-season Single-A baseball from June-September. In fact, our football stadium becomes the third largest city in Pennsylvania on Penn State Football game days. The Bryce Jordan Center is home to both Penn State women's and men's basketball. Other venues including Pegula Ice Arena, Rec Hall, and the White Building provide plenty of opportunities to cheer for the Blue and White.
