Planning Trip

Planning a trip to western PA September 25-26. Heading to Seven Springs Mountain Resort (Seven Springs, PA) to the first annual Mother Earth News Fair. Chickens, gardening, renewable energy, etc. (Hope they don't ask me to leave when they see my oil burner! )

Will be coming from Upstate South Carolina I-26, I-81, I-77, I-79, then 119 on the last leg. After we leave Seven Springs, we are heading to Niagara Falls. No plans after that but we'll have several days to kill.

Any "must see" things in western PA? Between there and Buffalo? Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

I also wanted ya'll to know I was headed that way in case I needed to be recued!

Thanks in advance!

Yeah.....I remember that as a kid 40 years ago. American side was trashy and the Canadian side was as clean a place as I have ever seen. We have our passports so we can cross. Is Toronto worth the time? Ever been there?

the only thing i didnt like about the falls area was it was a tourist trap. but it was really nice other than that. the wife and i took a tour bus while we were there and it was worth it.

never been up to toronto.

Wow? Didn't expect this? No one in western PA can suggest some "must see" places? Oh well?

I think I'll post the same in West VA./VA. and see if they have anything to suggest.

Thanks anyway PA.

I would recomend stopping in pittsburgh for a primanti brothers sandwich. Hershey is a neat place as well. Cooks forest, tienesta area were the first oil wel was in the country its a nice place to go this time of season. Grove city outlets which are off of I79 a good source of outlet stores for shopping. Seven springs is really nice you should have a good time there.

If you aren't towing on that trip, I'd take US50 through the mountains in WV. Its a windy mountain highway, but at the top, damn it is beautiful. And there are plenty of steep grades for you to hammer on the way up if you don't have a trailer.
