Pennsylvania is said to be one of the premiere states for scenic views in the country. For me, it is a joy to drive along Pennsylvania's rural two (or four) lane non-expressway highways and gaze upon the mountians, hills, farm countries, and historic towns.

Which of these highways is your favorite to drive on, for any reason?

Believe it or not I am quite partial to PA 61. I have a fondness for Coal Country; even though I am not from there, I feel I partially identify with it. In the same vein I also like PA 901, expecially the segment between I-81 and PA 54.

I've always liked US 15 across the whole state; three points on the highway are significant to me: Williamsport, where I live; Sunbury (across the river from the highway) where my close friend lives; and Gettysburg where my sister goes to college. So no matter which direction on Rt 15 I go on in any part of the state, it feels like I am going somewhere good. This is boosted by the awesome river and mountian scenery seen on various parts of the highway.

Honorable mention goes to PA 32 along the Delaware in Bucks County, PA 309 over Blue Mountian (though not through the urban/suburban parts of Lehigh and Bucks County, yuck yuck yuck). Dishonorable mention goes to Rt. 222 between Reading and Allentown (terrible commute I had to endure for two years).

I like route 666 up in the north central part of PA. I am not a satin worshiper. It is actually really nice and goes through the Allegheny National Forest.

I am saying this completely tongue-in-cheek, so please take no offense, but I believe you meant to say you're not a Satan worshipper.

Satin is a slippery, smooth material. During my early childhood years I had a stuffed lion with satin behind his mane. I loved that lion and had to have it with me almost constantly, so perhaps at that time I myself could have been considered a satin worshipper.

No, I am not a Satin worshiper.

However, I am a Satan worshiper. I like to burn sheep wrapped in satin on route 666 in northern PA.

Hello, I'm a satin worshipper and my favorite drive in Pennsylvania is Pa. 5 in eastern Erie County, paralleling the lake shore.

Hmm, I wonder what ever happened to my stuffed lion. You weren't in central PA in the late 1960s or early 1970s, were you?

LOL!! Thanks for having a sense of humor.

I second the vote for evil rt. 666... windy, hilly road along Tionesta creek... big time wild Appalachian feel in there.

There are a load of other roads I love... rt. 44 along Pine Creek, rt. 120 though wild elk country, rt. 30 (I think) in the southwest, rt. 322 cutting through the mountains, rt. 62 along the Allegheny River, and of course rt. 6.

Rt 6. Northern Pa. through the Endless Mountains. I think it runs the entire length of the state.

Route 30 all the way.




Takes you through all the best places in Pennsylvania.

Loved driving it from Pitt to Philly, it takes you by the old historic abandoned PA Turnpike

It goes by tons of small attractions in this state. It's hard not to like it so much.


Other than that, Route 6 is pretty OK
