  • Scranton is a city in northeast Pennsylvania. It’s known for Steamtown National Historic Site, with century-old locomotives set on a former rail yard. In a restored 19th-century mill, the Electric City Trolley Museum has interactive exhibits and vintage trolleys. Nearby are the 4 Scranton Iron Furnaces, relics of an 1800s iron plant. McDade Park is home to Lackawanna Coal Mine, where a mine car descends to tunnels. Since the revitalization began, many coffee shops, restaurants, and bars have opened in the downtown, creating a vibrant night-life. The low cost of living, pedestrian-friendly downtown, and the construction of loft-style apartments in older, architecturally significant buildings have attracted young professionals and artists.
