Pennsylvanians are sliding into winter by going sled riding. It’s a sport enjoyed by all ages. Little ones can venture into their backyards. If you have older children, you can pack up the car and head to a local park, perhaps take a trip to the other side of the state. Here are our favorite snow sledding spots.

1. Art Museum Steps: The Art Museum Steps located in Philadelphia is not your typical place to go sled riding. But it is one of the most iconic spots in Pennsylvania. After a big snowfall, the steps become a huge hill, and locals bring out their sleds.

2. AvalancheXpress Snow Tubing: AvalancheXpress Snow Tubing is located in York and is a top sled riding and ice skating destination. It features eight tubing lanes and two tube lifts.

3. Boulder Ridge Snow Tubing at Liberty Mountain Resort: Boulder Ridge Snow Tubing is located in Fairfield and has 15 tubing lanes. This snow tubing area is excellent for little ones, because it features a sledding spot made specifically for children ages 2-4.
