Growing up in Maryland and living now in West Virginia, we often travel to Pennsylvania — to Philadelphia to tour various museums or go to the Army-Navy football game, to Hershey Park for a fun family day, to various resorts for skiing and more.
We also purchased a franchise in Philadelphia and our van in Pittsburg, and we looked at houses in a variety of small towns across the state before building our home in WV.
And yet, somehow, despite the dozens of trips we’ve made to Pennsylvania, we’ve only just begun to scratch the surface of all the state offers.
I’d love to visit Amish Country (but fear I’d be one of those gawking outsiders because I’m so fascinated with Amish life!), and as the girls get older, we’ll definitely do a more in-depth study of all the historical sites from the Revolution, the Civil War and the founding of our country.
As I think through all of the possibilities, I love the idea of choosing from the preplanned roadtrips offered by VisitPA.com so that we can focus on enjoying the trip and not get bogged down by planning it!
Just look at this variety of roadtrips offered:
- Tour d’ Art
- Taste Buds on Tour
- Trails Mix
- Small Town Charmy
- and a ton more!
Really, there’s a ton of options to suit whatever your interests may be, and you can take a trip right out of the box or modify it to fit your needs.
I’d love to take the Keystone Country tour with my family and explore the country life along I-79.
Plan a trip along I-79 to discover farm-to-table cuisine in the Steel City, barns with a story to tell in Butler, and endless relaxation along the commonwealth’s only shore in Erie.
We could explore the Strip District, a historical market with fresh produce, ethnic groceries, bakeries, arts, crafts and collectibles shops, street vendors and much more, and eat at Habitat, a restaurant known for it’s locally-sourced ingredients and light-filled dining room.
Our family also loves to drive and explore, and the self-guided driving tour to discover the barns of Butler County sounds just up our alley.
Now the only question left to worry about is…when can we go?!
Head on over to the Roadtrip-A-Matic and take a look at the pa-roadtrips available — more than 15 different tours with several variations for each. Which one do you want to do first?
