Hi. I am going to be driving from Las Vegas to NYC in Feb. I would like to make a stop in Pittsburgh for one night and make the last leg of the trip be Pittsburgh to NYC.

Does anyone have any suggestions for routes?

Also, I might want to avoid the mountains as it will be February.

Your best bet for that drive would be to take I-40 to I-44 at Oklahoma City, then to I-70 at St. Louis and on to Pittsburgh.

After this, continue east on I-70 until you run in to 76, take that to Harrisburg, hook up with 81 going north, then to 80 east which will take you on in to NYC.

Sounds like a lot, but this sounds like the most logical, ideal drive.
Have a safe trip! I'll be doing a trip similar to that myself in february. (Savannah to Boston & Quebec, going through NYC)

You could also take US-22 East out of Pittsburgh to I-99 and run up through State College (kind of a neat area to visit set in the mountains) and hit I-80 north of there (this would also be shorter). Also, you wouldn't take I-81 to I-80, you'd exit from I-81 at I-78 just east of Harrisburg and this runs you right to NYC.

Sorry, the mountains pretty much run right through the middle of PA, there's no avoiding them! But after getting through the Rockies on your trip, the Appalachians should be a piece of cake!!
