Driving across Pennsylvania at night on most routes is terrible. Even when you're in the mountains, there's either no view or the view you DO have - is mostly dark nothing. I've done it three times and have needed frequent rest stop breaks to stay awake and entertained.

I am with you on this 100%! I've never driven on the Interstate system west of Chicago but I couldn't imagine having to endure anything worse than driving through Western Ohio and Indiana.

Most rural interstates are like that at night. Dark.

One time when I drove from PA to AZ, instead of taking I-44 to I-40, I took I-35 to Wichita, then took US 54 West through Kansas, the Oklahoma panhandle, then to Stratford, TX where I took US 287 down to Amarillo to meet up with I-40. That drive on US 287 was fascinating because it was flat with rolling hills, and it was amazing at just how far away you could see the Skyline of downtown Amarillo in the distance. It gave you hope that you were almost there back to civilization lol

Totally agree, that is seriously the most miserable stretch of nothing!

I would submit that it's people who only stick to Interstates when driving somewhere who "don't get out much."
