Atherton Street in the Borough of State College is a major thoroughfare that many stores and restaurants call home.
Many of these businesses are centered on North Atherton Street, which extends about four miles from Penn State's campus before its conjunction with Interstate 99.
In these four miles, grocery stores, drug stores, restaurants, coffee shops, hotels, banks and more can be found. While many are within walking distance to campus, local CATA buses are readily available to make the trip convenient for visitors and locals who may not have access to a car.
If you’ve never ridden a CATA bus, the process is simple. Our earlier blog post on that topic can be found here.
