Off the Beaten Path

Pinpoint: Pennsylvania is a travel and lifestyle magazine for the people and written by the people of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

It is a hiker’s collection of favorite trails in the state. It is a foodie’s review of a little-known gem of a fine dining restaurant. It is a photographer’s unique point of view of historic state landmarks. It is a collection of passionately shared memories and experiences from people just like you.

In each issue, go off the beaten path as we discover new experiences and gain different perspectives on the familiar, in areas where Pennsylvania’s offerings are rich, including Arts & Entertainment, Family Fun, Food & Drink, History, Outdoors, and Unique Places
