Roadtrip Time for a roadtrip!


Philly > New York > Atlantic City > Philly

Philadelphia, aka Philly, is Pennsylvania’s largest city and is also historic af. Probably the most important piece of our nation’s history took place in Philadelphia: the making of classic film, Rocky .

Rocky Rocky was set in the City of Brotherly Love

Other important things took place there, too, such as: the signing of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. Ever heard of ‘em? From Philly, hit up NYC for some big city fun. Grab a bagel and a slice of pizza. Go nuts in Time Square. Follow your city slicker heart. Next, head down to Atlantic City and enjoy their world-famous Boardwalk or just chill on the beach. Keep away from those casinos, tho.

Pittsburgh > Washington, D.C. > Lancaster > Pittsburgh

After you’ve told the Steelers goodbye, depart from Pittsburgh and head for our fine nation’s capital, Washington, D.C. Of course you have to go visit the White House and the Lincoln Memorial,

Abe Lincoln Memorial The Lincoln memorial is absolutely stunning

but also go check out Old Ebbitt Grill, Washington’s first ever saloon, which was founded in 1856! After you’ve had your fill, keep on keepin’ on to Lancaster, PA. Lancaster is considered Pennsylvania Dutch country. Amish culture is fascinating and can offer you a glimpse of early 1800s farm life. When you’re done soaking in the farm-y goodness, grab your horse and buggy and head back home to Pittsburgh.

Scranton > Niagara Falls > Cleveland > Scranton

Scranton is a city on rise, having been ranked one of US News’ Top 100 best places to live. It’s home to Michael Scott and the rest of the gang from The Office

Scranton You can't go to Scranton and not think of the Office

and some pretty spooky ghost tours. From Scranton, head to Niagara Falls and wave across that beautiful border to your Canadian neighbors. Check out the breathtaking views, the Maid of the Mist, and the Cave of the Winds, then head out from the Falls to the Great Lakes. Cleveland has a lot to offer. From the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to the Orchestra to the amazing food , you can definitely keep yourself entertained and make sure your road trip goes out with a bang.
