Little League World Series

Williamsport is a city in the Pennsylvania Wilds of Pennsylvania.


Some major area attractions are in communities that are separate from the city of Williamsport. Most notably, the Little League Baseball complex—including the headquarters, the museum, and the Little League World Series stadiums—is located in the borough of South Williamsport, on the other side of the Susquehanna River from Williamsport proper.

Get in[edit]

Greyhound has a daily service from Harrisburg to Williamsport.

By car[edit]

Williamsport is connected to two Interstates: I-180 and I-99. I-80, which terminates at Interstate 80 south of Williamsport, is the road you'll use if you're coming from New York or Philadelphia. From Pittsburgh, you'll use I-99, which is not entirely completed and still has some non-expressway gaps, so expect construction and some confusion. (You might spot signs saying "Future I-99 corridor" on the drive in). Points north should use US-15, which will one day be I-99. The area north of Williamsport is sparsely populated though, so there will probably be little in the way of delays, just a rather scenic mountain drive.

By plane[edit]

  • 1 Williamsport Regional Airport (IPT  IATA) (located in nearby Montoursville). The main airport servicing the area. Options are extremely limited, with only one destination served: American Airlines flies to their hub in Philadelphia. Because American has a monopoly on the airport, flying to Williamsport can be an expensive endeavor. Williamsport Regional Airport (Q8021280) on Wikidata Williamsport Regional Airport on Wikipedia
