The latest post on BackroadTraveler…
Having lived in Pennsylvania nearly my entire life, I must confess, I have tended to set my eyes on the south when it comes to travel. However, Pennsylvania has some wonderful roads that are rich with history and scenery; Rt 30 between Chambersburg and Ligonier, and Rt 6 are two of my favorites. On a recent trip to pick up furniture from a family member near Binghamton, NY, I chose, as you would probably expect, to avoid the Interstate system. As usual, it was the right choice!
I planned this trip on Furkot.com, with the only criteria being I wanted to avoid Interstates as much as possible, and I wanted to go through Towanda, PA (a trip years ago left me wanting to see it again). Of course, heading due north out of the Harrisburg area is going to involve Rt 15 in some way. Rt 15 is, in most places, similar to Interstate but there is less traffic, smaller towns, and, along most of it, a view of the Susquehanna River
