    Default Pennsylvania

    May I suggest that you check out Pennsylvania. There are so many historic sites, quaint towns and natural attractions in this State, that you could spend weeks there and not see it all. And it is right en-route. You could check out things like route 6, with its many attractions, the Grand Canyon of PA, Kinzua Bridge site - just some of the many attractions along that route.

    Further south there are the covered bridges of Bedford County, all accessed by a self drive tour, including Gravity Hill. There is the lovely town of Jim Thorpe nestled in the hills in eastern PA, with quite a bit of history. It is like stepping back half a century or more. Just in that region there are a large number of attractions and activities, including Boulder Fields.

    And all through PA you will come across the old rail viaduct. It is worth seeking out and seeing. A magnificent structure!

    Just google any or all of the above to get further details, and see what you think.
