The National Pike is a nice break from the interstate. We have driven many sections of it over the years. Lots of things to see and places to stop.

The Old National Road in now US route 40. It is very scenic and runs through Maryland, Pa, and Parts of Ohio. There are many attractions mostly parks along the way and Fort Necessity. Great for a scenic Drive.

We were in the area visiting Fallingwaters and Kentuck Nob. The roads in the area are great and lots of fun, we were driving a MINI Cooper and had a blast. The road is a nice twisty road through the country.

It's not the Pacific Coast Highway or the Blue Ridge Parkway, but there is some great scenery along this old American road. Try to put in some miles, getting off the interstate, if the opportunity allows. The view down to Washington, Pa driving West is...More
