A magnificent mountainous region, the Laurel Highlands spans 3,000 square miles of Fayette, Somerset, and Westmoreland Counties in southwestern Pennsylvania. Located just east of Pittsburgh, our beautiful four-season destination offers spectacular natural scenery, outstanding outdoor recreation venues, historic sites & attractions, family activities, and world-class resorts.
The region's beauty provides a picturesque backdrop for notable attractions, such as Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater®, built over a waterfall. The AAA Five-Diamond award-winning Nemacolin Woodlands Resort provides a luxurious getaway on 2,000 wooded acres. Even George Washington documented his thoughts about the area while at Fort Necessity and Fort Ligonier.

The union of Seven Springs, Hidden Valley and Laurel Mountain offers snow enthusiasts slopes, trails, and terrain parks.
