Ed S, traveling from Wisconsin I would use I-80 in Pa. to exit 161 to I-99/220 to US 322 in Bellefonte, Pa. It's all 4 lane and nice road all the way to Harrisburg. And no tolls.

Oldrtrcr,
Thank you I will map this out. Are you saying taking this route there are no tolls? Mapquest has me dropping down on 76 b4 hitting the PA state line.

If you are coming from Indy or southern parts of Indiana, the shortest, least tolled route is the one I recommended before. I 70 to New Stanton PA and then the PA turnpike. Mapquest confirms that.

Starting in northern Indian, the turnpikes all the way across and lots of tolls, but it's the most direct route and, with the cost of fuel these days, possibly cheaper offsetting tolls.

I 80 and I 99 in PA are fine roads, no tolls, but Gettysburg and Lancaster are in the southern part of PA and make it a much longer trip.

No tunnel issues to worry about.

Ed S. There are tolls in Indiana and Ohio when traveling on I-80. Just west of Youngstown, OH., I-76 and I-80 intersect. You will stay on I-80 and leave the toll road. I-76 continues as the toll road. So once you hit Youngstown, OH you will be done with tolls. When you get to Harrisburg, Pa, take I-81 south to Carlisle.

Thanks for the info. I just looked at their website and it looks like a nice place. The price isn't too bad either. We may just happen to reserve there.

You stay south of Pittsburgh and avoid the first 70 miles of the Turnpike before getting onto the Tpke at the New Stanton, PA exit. You avoid those extra tolls, and some construction area.

The PA Turnpike between Pgh and Breezewood is MUCH NICER to drive nowadays. Been using it for 40 yrs now.

Enjoy Gettysburg. We usually stay at Round Top CG. OK place, close enough to town.

safe travels
jack
Round Top is one of the two or three we are seriously looking at, thanks.

I just did the "Toll Calculator" in the PA Turnpike website and it says that with 4 axles entering at I-70 and exiting at the Gettysburg Pike exit, it will cost me $21.55. While that isn't cheap, I'll deal with it, it's the price we/I pay for the convenience.
