Long heralded for its healing waters and restorative environs, the Omni Bedford Springs Resort’s origins date back to 1796 when its seven original mineral springs lured guests for a healing cure. A classic “springs resort” with many of the original buildings and architectural elements still in place, the restored and expanded Omni Bedford Springs Resort features the 30,000 square foot Springs Eternal Spa, five restaurants, meeting and banquet space, retail shops and a variety of recreational activities. The resort is three miles off the Pennsylvania Turnpike, a scenic drive from many major metropolitan areas: Pittsburgh (90 minutes), Washington, DC (two hours), Baltimore (two hours), Philadelphia (three hours) and New York City (four hours). Several major airports are also within a two-hour drive: Pittsburgh International, Reagan National, Dulles International and Baltimore/Washington International (BWI).
If you are inclined to think at the scale of mega-regions, then is there any doubt about the geographic advantage Pittsburgh possesses?
