There is a ton of stuff here from lounging in the river to biking on the rail trail; river rafting to several Frank Lloyd Wright structures including Fallingwater. Plenty of good restaurants and tourist trinkets.

The only area I have seen tubing is the Middle Yough. Rapids are classified as Class I & II. It runs between Confluence and Ohiopyle.
