The Pennsylvania Turnpike – Review part 3 of 6

October 16, 2009

Crossing the Susquehanna River, the flood plains of the Cumberland Valley open ahead of you for a 40 mile jaunt.  One of the most fertile regions of Pennsylvania, your journey will be flanked by grain fields and pasture, but don’t take this seemingly sedate section for granted.  Not only does this section have some of the most truck traffic due to multiple converging Interstates, but the greater region has some of the best tourist attractions for the span.  From the Gettysburg Battlefields, to The Hershey Factory and Park, to the automotive meets and Dickinson College in Carlisle, and as a gateway to the PA wilderness (including the Appalachian trail, world renowned fly fishing, and great expanses of Pennsylvania game lands), this is an excellent spot to add some time to your journey and explore off the beaten path.
