Scranton is the 6th largest city in Pennsylvania, with a population of roughly 75,000 people. Together with the city of Wilkes-Barre (pop. 41,000) it makes up the major cultural and administrative center of Northeastern Pennsylvania.
Scranton is the site of numerous exhibits commemorating the region's past mining history, including the Anthracite Heritage Museum, Lackawanna Coal Mine Tour and Steamtown National Historic Park. Scranton is also the home to Montage Mountain ski resort, the Scranton-Wilkes Barre Yankees minor league baseball team and Wilkes Barre-Scranton Penguins minor league hockey team.
The region also features numerous state parks which are excellent for hiking, camping, fishing and hunting.
Of course, Scranton is perhaps best known as the home of Dunder-Mifflin Paper Company, yet, sadly, neither Hooter's nor Chili's is located within the city limits.
