Central Parking of Pennsylvania is but one branch of a nationwide business that stations cars in more than 1.2 million spaces throughout 2,500 garages. The coveted spots are located in the heart of each city near renowned hotels and destinations, housing rides near Pittsburgh's Mellon Arena or the salsa-dancing shadow of Sylvester Stallone that still shades a famous set of Philadelphian steps. Commuters snag discounts on Zipcars, which take up residence in more than 100 of the parking facilities.

The attentive staff at Charlie Brown’s Airport Parking watches after visiting automobiles in a fenced and secure lot located within a half-second flight of Pittsburgh International Airport’s runways. Upon arriving, car owners surrender their metallic steeds to seasoned valets before confirming their online reservations with a courteous host at the front desk. Cars are left to bask in the sunlight of an outdoor space, and an on-demand shuttle with complimentary luggage assistance whisks passengers away to nearby airport terminals. Only 15 minutes elapse between check-in at the lot and arrival at the terminal, allowing guests plenty of time to wait in security lines or double-check if their sunscreen and inflatable palm trees are packed.
Hazelbaker's equips river riders of all skill sets with the necessary gear to leisurely float down the scenic Youghiogheny River. Bring a friend, a loved one, or a newborn clone, and embark on a three- to four-hour expedition from the bowels of a canoe or two-person kayak. Each trek begins in Dawson and ventures along 8 miles of riverbank, snaking past lush forestry, vibrant wildlife, and baby Class I flat-water currents. The easy-to-navigate flow of the river and lack of overzealous bow captains allow neophyte rowers to keep up with more experienced paddlers and more experienced paddlers to keep up with paddlefish. Each excursion ends in Layton, where new-fangled river farers can ditch their vessels and head to town to swap stories of river life with the local historian.
