The city of Scranton makes it the largest city in Northeast Pennsylvania and is home to the 1st Battalion of the 55th Heavy Brigade of the National Guard, and a short drive to the Tobyhanna Army Depot.
Tobyhanna Army Depot is the largest, full-service electronics maintenance facility in the Department of Defense. Tobyhanna is the recognized leader in the areas of automated test equipment, systems integration and downsizing of electronics systems. The Army has designated Tobyhanna as its Center of Industrial and Technical Excellence for command, control, communications and intelligence systems.
Tobyhanna has served our nation for over 59 years having opened on Feb. 1, 1953 following 2 years of construction. However, the Army has maintained a nearly continuous presence at TYAD since 1912, when the site was first used as a field artillery training camp.
In 1866 the first electric trolley car was introduced and Scranton was nicknamed 'The Electric City'. Now it is better known as the fictional city in the TV show 'The Office' and the home of the triple A Yankees.
Culturally, Scranton is also proud of The Scranton Cultural Center which brings the philharmonic, Broadway shows, opera, ballet, children's travel shows and concert venues to Northeastern Pennsylvania. In Downtown you can take a ride on an original steam train or travel into the depths of a coal mine. One of the places you must visit is Nay Aug Park, which has walking trails, picnic areas, kid friendly rides, 2 playgrounds, 2 swimming pools and The Everhart Museum of Natural History, along with a rock strewn gorge and waterfalls. For the active crowd Montage Mountain boasts a skiing resort, golf club, a water park, the Triple A Yankees baseball stadium, a Cineplex, an Amphitheatre (host to world renowned musicians, pop and rock groups) and the retail shops at Montage.
