As its name indicates, State College has deep roots in Pennsylvania academia and sports. It goes without saying that football reigns supreme here, home to Pennsylvania State University's flagship campus. The Penn State Nittany Lions paint the town blue and white with team spirit and massive tailgate parties in the autumn months. Restaurants, pubs and art venues tend to hug the campus perimeter, but there are notable exceptions, including an in-city vineyard and winery that evokes Napa Valley more than the Liberty Bell.
