Bucknell University is a small liberal arts school located on the banks of the Susquehanna River in the town of Lewisburg, in central Pennsylvania. The beautiful campus is filled with rolling green lawns and traditional red-brick buildings. The isolated location contributes to a strong sense of community on campus, even garnering a nickname of the ”Bucknell Bubble”.
Stay: The Lewisburg Hotel opened its doors in 1834 and has been welcoming guests ever since. Located in downtown Lewisburg, the hotel prides itself on good service and spacious rooms. The Pineapple Inn is a sweet B&B located in the historic part of Lewisburg, just six blocks from Bucknell. Minutes away from campus book a room at the Comfort Suites.
Breakfast: Known as the "un-fast food place," Cherry Alley offers traditional omelets, granola and bagels along with savory crepes, tofu scrambles and breakfast burritos. Serving home cooked breakfast classics, Street of Shops is open seven days a week. Students rave about their specialty pancakes - the apple cinnamon and chocolate chip are favorites.
Lunch: Enjoy signature sandwiches, salads, soups and paninis at Pronto's. If you happen to be at Bucknell over the weekend, make sure you come here for brunch. Another option is Towne Tavern for burgers, bbq and panini’s. Get your fill of wings, burgers, nachos or healthier salads at traditional American Bull Run Tap House.
A Step Up: The atmosphere is intimate at Elizabeth's with an extensive wine list and food that never disappoints. Students say this is the best restaurant on Market Street. Reba and Poncho's is where Mediterranean meets Mexican cuisine and everything is cooked to order. Take your time and enjoy the warm, fun atmosphere.
