Trip from Al to PA. Where to go?

Planning a trip this fall from Al to PA. Only stop currently planned is in Washington DC. Last year we went to Blue Ridge Mt (stopped in Cherokee, NC also).

What other nice place is there to go?

We are both retired and just starting our trips to explore the US. We have an old Aunt which we want to visit this fall in PA.

If you like Chocolate then visit Hershey, PA. http://www.hersheys.com/chocolateworld/

If you like trains (all kinds and sizes) then Strasburg PA
Full Steam Adventure - Strasburg Rail Road
https://www.google.ca/?gws_rd=ssl#sa...pa+attractions

Gettysburg if you are a history type. http://www.gettysburgfoundation.org/

My wife and I spent the better part of three weeks wandering the railroad attractions there years ago and we always talk about going back to see the things we really liked again and also to see what we missed the first time through.

If you would like to feed fish go to Pymatuning PA yes it's the place where the Ducks walk on the fishes back. It's the only place in PA you're allowed to feed. Make sure you bring along a couple of loaves of bread.

If you have never been there it's worth a day or two to go to see the Liberty Bell and the National Park around it:

https://www.nps.gov/inde/learn/histo...ibertybell.htm

That's where the country started.

There are a lot of interesting places to go depending on what you want to see and what part of the state you are in.

How about Frank Lloyd Wrigt's incredible Falling Water home in Mill Run, PA just south of Pittsburg?

It's on on list for next year............. Have not looked into where we will stay yet.

Fort Meade has a very nice FamCamp. It's walking distance to the DC Metro.

We stayed at Kentuck Campground for visiting Fallingwater. However the road from Ohiopyle, PA to that campground is steep. Yes, I dragged a trailer up it. Take the alternate road.
In DC area try NPS Greenbelt Park. It is convenient for camping and close to College Park metro and Queenstown RV store.
Thurmont, MD has Catoctin Mountain Park, Camp David is not open for visiting.

Got to be going by some excellent distilleries on the way. Interesting tours if you are interested. A lot of history in KY and TN from when we expanded west after the Revolution. Nashville and the Opry if so inclined. What kind of things do you like?

As several people asked, in what part of PA does your aunt live? PA is pretty big. We live in Lancaster, and there's a massive amount of things to see and do within a short distance of us.

And if you haven't seen Lancaster County, you haven't seen PA!
