Please be aware of this small towns entrapment set up. My partner and I were pulled over for not stopping for an "alleged" pedestrian attempting to cross. Granted the "pedestrian" was 5 feet from the road and facing opposite direction of the road. We were immediately pulled over and given a $152.00 citation. It was $50.00 fine and the other $100.00 random fees were added in ignorantly, $10.00 ems fee??? The "officer" was clueless when I questioned him about the legalities of the reason for being pulled over. This place is a rat hole that is worth passing by, when traveling in this area. If this is the type of "Welcome" that this town extends, then I will definitely keep moving when near here. Case and point of why the citation will be fought... Hey Matamoras, learn civilian rights for driving. Also, the fact that I recorded the certain "pedestrian" continually attempting to walk across the road simply out of purpose for citing visitors for driving violations verified that this is an illegal entrapment set up.

This is a great place to stop and stretch whether you leaving or entering eastern Pennsylvania on I-80. It is just a light stop off the interstate and has plenty of parking, an extensive library of state attractions, clean rest rooms, and a very dedicated and helpful staff. If you have any questions about things to do either in the local area or in the state, these folks will help you find just the right place to enhance your visit to the Keystone state.
