RECOMMENDED by the Pennsylvania Visitors Network: US 15 heading north from Selinsgrove to Williamsport, (our corporate headquarters), in Lycoming County, home of Little League Baseball. Coming up the mountain into Williamsport is breathtaking! When you are in Williamsport be sure to find West Fourth Street and the beautiful drive through Williamsport's Historic District, one of the nation's largest concentrations of Victorian homes. You don't want to miss it! Then take Fourth Street right out to US 220 South and follow it to either PA 287 North or PA 44 North. Either drive is outstanding. PA 287 will take you up to Wellsboro and the Grand Canyon of PA. PA 44 will take you up into Coudersport and Potter County, God's Country. Expect mountains and wildlife (maybe even bears!) north of Williamsport. We honestly believe these two drives are what autumn is all about!

In Lock Haven, Clinton County, find PA Route 120 and take it north all the way to Emporium, Cameron County. River on the right, mountains on the left, breath-taking scenery and beautiful photography. Might even come across some elk.

The "other other side of the river" is stupendous anytime of the year but especially the fall. Find PA Route 225 from US 322 in the boro of Dauphin (Dauphin County). Follow it up over the mountain to PA Route 147. Follow 147 north to Sunbury in Northumberland County. The river is on your left all the way up. Beautiful!

With its mountain vistas, historic highways and scenic farmlands, the Laurel Highlands of Southwestern Pennsylvania is a beautiful place to visit at any time of the year. But in the fall nature puts on its firework display and the region turns into a breathtaking spectacular of colors.
A drive on almost any roadway in the Laurel Highlands will offer fabulous views of colorful foliage from mountaintops, hillsides and valleys. Usually at its peak during the 2nd and 3rd weeks in October, the Laurel Highlands Visitors Bureau suggest three routes to take-in the splendid treasures of autumn in the Laurel Highlands.

These routes offer several points of interest along the way. A trip on U.S. Route 40 from Brownsville, PA to Grantsville, MD will take the traveler across approximately 50 miles of the nation's first highway. U.S. Route 40 follows the National Road with several areas where the original road detours off the current route.

Another choice for the west/east traveler is Route 30, a perfect fall alternative to the Pennsylvania Turnpike. Route 30 also known as the Lincoln Highway offers many recreational, historical and scenic attractions along the approximate 80 miles from Irwin to Bedford.
