On The Road Again In Pennsylvania

By James Harden

The beauty of New England in the fall is legendary, but the roads can get a bit crowded that time of year. However, did you know that Pennsylvania offers the same romantic scenery along its rural highways and those roads usually have less traffic? You could spend your entire life exploring just the rural Pennsylvania countryside by car, and the rustic scenery is perfect anytime of the year for a getaway with that special someone.

One of the first places you run across driving westward out of Philadelphia is Lancaster County and the Amish Country, and there’s no shortage of info on seeing these welcoming folks and their farms but the Pennsylvania Dutch country has a great deal more, including the Dutch Wonderland Theme Park and the American Music Theater. Beautiful historic bed breakfasts are all throughout this great area.

One thing is sure, you will not have any problem reserving vacation cabin rentals, since Lancaster County has an abundant quantity of vacation rentals ranging from rustic to luxurious at the area’s numerous fine inns. For a different kind of romantic experience, check out Mechanicsburg. Found just north of the Pennsylvania Turnpike, this historic community offers a range of interests that will appeal to him as well as her.

For him, there’s the Eastern Museum of Motor Racing, which features exhibits of fully restored race cars from the initial days of competitive road racing as well as different displays. Afterwards, she will enjoy a day at the Revalations Day Spa, which provides not only accommodations but also a hot springs, massage, and mud bath for couples.

Halfway between Philadelphia and Lancaster is Chester County, which contains most of Pennsylvania’s rustic Brandywine Valley. The folks who live here have been careful about shielding their historic heritage. As a result, as you drive through the vicinity, you will encounter a number of old-world small towns that date back 250 years and more. Deciduous forests, gentle pasturelands, covered bridges over brooks and streams and more await your arrival.

More active couples who really want to see Pennsylvania ought to check out the Allegheny Passage C&O Passage, which has over 300 miles of off-road cycling paths winding from Pittsburgh all the way across the Keystone State and into Washington D.C. This is an added part of a growing system of old rail lines that are being converted into bicycling and hiking trials that are relatively flat and hard-packed with crushed limestone and gravel. For couples who are active and have the time, there’s no more desirable or more laid-back way to see the romantic Pennsylvania countryside.
