Discover Wilkes-Barre

Wilkes-Barre is a city in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania. It was first established in 1769 and formally incorporated in 1806. The discovery of coal reserves in the 19th century attracted thousands of immigrants seeking jobs at the mines, causing the city to expand rapidly. This continued until after World War II when the coal industry collapsed, and the city's economy shrank. Today the city relies on manufacturing and retail to support its economy and has developed a policy of pursuing green alternatives wherever possible, such as the installation of green lampposts. It was home to the Planter's Peanut Company from 1926 to 1961 and was the site of Babe Ruth's record home run, one of the longest in baseball history, at Artillery Park.

Book an RV in Luzerne County, and you will be one step closer to an RV vacation you will not soon forget. There are a few other towns that entertain for an afternoon (or perhaps longer). Meshoppen has one listing on the National Register of Historic Places, the Old White Mill, added in 1975. Carbondale was where the first deep vein anthracite deposit in the United States was discovered and mined. Frackville has a nickname of “Mountain City,” that was bestowed when it merged with the village of Mountain City in 1876. Danville has a number of notable people who are or were residents, including the inventor of the QWERTY keyboard configuration, Christopher Latham Sholes. Milton has been home to several notable people, such as James Curtis Hepburn who invented a system for using Roman characters to write in Japanese. Your Wilkes-Barre travel trailer rental is your invitation to see this historic area for yourself.
