Pennsylvania

Provided By: 

As you travel along the route for this trip, you’ll cross the northern tier of Pennsylvania and visit four regions: the Great Lakes, the Wilds, the Northeast Mountains and the Poconos. We recommend you allow a full week for this trip, which takes you through some of the most beautiful countryside in the eastern part of the country. Put some of your favorite traveling music on the stereo and get rolling!

Linesville serves as our starting point, and is home to Pymatuning Lake. The lake rests in the middle of the 21,000-acre Pymatuning Park. You can go fishing or boating on the lake year-round, and the park makes an excellent place to go hiking or break out a picnic lunch. The Linesville Spillway is considered the second most popular tourist attraction in Pennsylvania – the Liberty Bell being number one – and is the sanctuary for thousands of oversized carp. Due to this massive congregation of fish, the Spillway is known as “The Place Where the Ducks Walk on the Fishes’ Backs.” Bring some bread to feed the fish and see just how many you can attract at one time.

Moving east on Route 6, in 15 miles you’ll come to the off-ramp for the eastbound PA-27. Take the exit and 26 miles later, you’ll come to the town of Titusville. Titusville’s claim to fame is that it’s the location of the oil well that is considered to have been the start of the modern petroleum industry. The Drake Well Museum shows the history of the oil industry through a series of exhibits, videos and operating examples of field machines. Nearby Oak Creek Park is a great place to spend a day, with the opportunity to go kayaking or canoeing, or just enjoy the fresh air.

Returning to Route 6, travel east for approximately 50 miles until you come to the exit for the northbound Highway 27; travel north on the 27 for 20 miles to the town of Bradford. Bradford is home to the Zippo Lighter Visitor Center, an offbeat attraction devoted to arguably the most famous and oldest lighter in the world. The Center features artwork comprised entirely of Zippo lighters, such as an American flag made from more than 300 red, white and blue Zippos. There’s also an exhibit dedicated to the use of the Zippo in movies such as Die Hard and many others. It’s definitely a museum unlike any other.

Returning to the eastbound Route 6, you’ll cruise through the picture-postcard beauty of the Pennsylvania countryside. This part of the trip takes you past Pine Gorge, which is known as the Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania due to its width of 4,000 feet, its depth of 1,500 feet and its length of 47 miles. It truly is one of nature’s magnificent wonders and has been named a National Natural Landmark; be sure to pull over and get some memorable photos of this incredible site.

The city of Wellsboro rests right on Route 6, and in addition to some really beautiful parks, it’s the home of the Steam Town National Historic Site. This is the only national park devoted entirely to the history of steam locomotion, and spreads acros...
