  1. Default New York City to Chicago - where to stop

    Driving from NYC to Chicago Thanksgiving week. Would like to drive 3-4 hours first evening. What is a good stopping point? Anywhere interesting?

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    If you're just looking to get from NYC to Chicago in a day and a half, then the State College, PA area would be about right for a place that's about 4 hours away. There should be some options closer to I-80, if you don't want to detour down into State College itself, but that's the area I'd be looking at.

    Pickings are pretty slim without going into State College - all I can find is a Quality Inn at Exit 158 in Milesburg and a Econo Lodge on Hwy 150 just south of Bellefonte. There's a whole bunch in State College, being a university town.

    Bring your EZ-Pass, it works in PA, OH, IN, and IL.

    Default Many Choices

    If you use the RTA RoadTrip Travel app at the right of this page, and enter two choices (Bellefonte and Clearfield, PA - enter them separately) you will get a couple of dozen lodging opportunities in the I-80/State College area ranging from basic econo-motels through bed and breakfasts to high-end resorts, all within 10 miles or so of the main highway. One of those should surely suit your personal needs.
