Unforgettable Pennsylvania Road Trips
There’s no better way to explore the country than with the Great American Road Trip. You can take it at your own pace, set your own destinations and stop to explore whenever you feel like it…then get started again at your own leisure. At United Tire & Service, we thought you might like to know about some road trips right here in Pennsylvania you can check out with your family:
- Brandywine Valley: Extending from southeastern Pennsylvania into Delaware, the Brandywine Valley is loved for its gorgeous countryside and wineries. Be sure to stop and check out Longwood Gardens, a beautifully manicured layout of fountains and landscaping.
- Pine Creek Gorge, sometimes known as the Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania, is a 47-mile long valley carved out over the centuries by Pine Creek. It’s a great destination for outdoor aficionados and is perfect if you love hiking, the outdoors and stunning views.
- Erie may not seem like a vacation hotspot, but it’s a great place to enjoy sailing on the lake and exploring their rich local culture.
- Lancaster is in the middle of serene farm country and is home to the largest Amish community in the world. It’s a trip back in time to connect with the Amish and find out more about their simple lifestyle.
- Gettysburg is the site of the Civil War’s bloodiest battle. Today, Gettysburg is a national monument and a great destination for the history buff in your family to reflect on the men who fought and perished in that bloody conflict.
- Bethlehem, longtime home of the steel industry, features numerous year-round attractions such as the Sands Casino, the Moravian Book Shop (oldest continuously open bookstore in the world) or the Crayola Factory in nearby Easton.
- Cherry Springs State Park is a great camping spot and is far enough away from light pollution o have some of the darkest skies east of the Mississippi, making it a perfect spot for stargazers.
