Literary Pennsylvania, Writing for a New Nation
Pennsylvania was one of the states that inspired the Author Adventures site because of its vast number of important literary history sites. The Pennsylvania Author Adventures Trail, which runs east-west from Philadelphia to Pittsburgh, or you can reverse it and head from Pittsburgh to Philadelphia. Either way, you will be on interstates most of the time, with the longest ride on I-76.
If you want to stop, try Lancaster County’s shops and homemade pie stands for refreshments and souvenirs. Be sure what you buy is made in Pennsylvania to support the people helping you on your journey.
