In Pennsylvania, Conde Nast named the Delaware Water Gap the most beautiful place in the state. 

The Delaware Water Gap, a National Recreation Area, is formed by Middle Delaware River's passage between forested mountains and rocky mountain ridges. The 70,000-acre park in Bushkill offers historical experiences, hiking, camping, water adventures and more. Click here to learn more about the parking, including details on camping and hiking.

According to the National Park Foundation, the site is home to Native American archaeological sites. Some structures remain from early Dutch settlement and the colonial contact period. Additionally, there are historic rural villages on the New Jersey side.
