Weekend and vacation homes near Penn State University (www.psu.edu) are always in demand.  Penn State alumni, hoping to re-kindle the spirit of their undergrad days or with a keen interest in Penn State sports, including Penn State football and basketball, are the primary buyers of weekend and getaway homes near Penn State University.

Buyers of weekend and vacation homes near Penn State can be assigned to several different categories including:

1.                  Those alumni that want to be as close to the Penn State campus as possible

2.                  Those alumni that enjoy the great outdoors and want to combine their weekends between Penn State athletics and all the amenities that the Central Pa outdoors has to offer.

In today's post we will focus on weekend and vacation homes near Penn State University that are close to the campus.  We will discuss point number 2 in a follow-up post.

For many alumni, it is all about Penn State football http://www.gopsusports.com/sports/m-footbl/psu-m-footbl-body.html weekends and trips to the Nittany Lion Inn and the Berkey Creamery

Appropriately named, Homecoming Ridge is located less than 2 miles to the stadium and on the CATA bus route and is a part of The Village of Penn Statehttp://www.sahomebuilder.com/communitymulti.asp?comnum=247

 Amenities include maintenance free living, new construction condo's, and a club house with swimming pool and fitness center.  Prices start at just under $200,000 and there are homes ready for immediate delivery in time for the first Penn State Football game of 2009.  About half of all buyers in Homecoming Ridge are Penn State alumni that buy homes as second homes for weekend getaways.
