While there may not be a real Dunder Mifflin Paper Company, the NBC television show The Office is set in Scranton, Pennsylvania – giving this small, unassuming city star status. The city has embraced the show, which often mentions real places in Scranton.
Scranton began quietly enough in 1771 and the arrival of Issac Tripp, who chose to build his home here in an attempt to prove that the area was safe for settlers. And while his granddaughter was later kidnapped by Indians, settlers soon followed his lead. The Tripp House still stands and is the oldest house in Lackawanna County.
Chosen as one of the top locations to raise a family by BusinessWeek and as one of the fastest recovering cities in the country by Forbes Magazine, Scranton has more claims to fame than a quirky TV show. In addition to historic sites, Scranton apartment renters have access to snow skiing and mountain climbing in the Pocono Mountains. They can enjoy the many vineyards, wineries and wine cellars in the area, as well as beautiful state parks. Casinos, fishing in the Lackawanna River and nearby lakes, museums, theaters, and a wide variety of community festivals and events round out the vast list of things to do in Scranton.
