Fishing on Yellow Breeches Creek

See & Do

Re-energize in the historic village of Boiling Springs, PA. Relax, paddle or fish along the banks of Children's Lake, a seven-acre lake with perfectly clear water that literally bubbles. Take a leisurely stroll around Lover's Walk, a hike along the famed Appalachian Trail (A.T.), or discover the village's charm and historic significance with the help of our 19-century Boiling Springs Self-Guided Walking Tour.

TIP: Stop by the Appalachian Trail Conservancy for A.T. maps and friendly volunteers to guide you in the right direction. Chances are you'll run into a thru-hiker and they always have interesting stories to share.

Visit the TCO Fly Shop for all the gear you'll need to get ready to fly fish the nearby Yellow Breeches or hike the A.T. You can also sign up for a guided fishing experience or fly-tying class. 

Find a unique treasure at the award-winning Village Artisans Gallery, which features the work of over 200 artisans, primarily from Pennsylvania. If the timing is right you may see an artist in action.


Sip a cup of freshly ground espresso at Caffe 101. Enjoy the view of Children's lake from their beautiful outside patio or get your lunch and hand-dipped ice cream to go and sit by the lake.

The historic Boiling Springs Tavern built in 1832, which serves dishes such as salmon Rockefeller, grilled polenta and roast duck, is an excellent choice for a candlelight dinner.
