Travel Info for Heartspace Events


Hotels: Quality Inn & Suites (814) 944-9661: This hotel is definitely most convenient - a very easy one block walk to/from Heartspace (you do go through parking lots, but do not have to cross any streets), where we have our workshops.

There are other hotels cheaper, like Super 8 (814) 942-5350 (which is close & folks report is perfectly adequate).

Consider a cabin at nearby Canoe Creek State Park.

Directions & Parking

Directions: see map As you approach 217 Union Ave., look for "Simington Plaza II" sign on two story brick commercial building. It is located between Dunkle Services and Medcare Express, and across street from Town & Country Real Estate and Guy Landolfi, CPA. Enter building from front, and take stairs or elevator to second floor.

Parking: Please avoid parking along the left side of our building (as you face building from road). Use the rear, right side and front parking spaces to help us cooperate with neighboring business owners. Thanks in advance for this small favor.
