Roadtrip-a-Matic on Makes Pennsylvania Vacation Planning Easy

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of PA Tourism for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.


Oh, how I regret not spending more time exploring Pennsylvania’s rich history, green spaces and city streets. We were neighbors for the first 20-some years of my life yet I barely got to know the Keystone State, with exceptions of roadtrips to Titusville and seeing Drake Well and learning about the Amish. A quick business trip led me to the Mütter Museum and Liberty Bell in Philadelphia, yet, it seems I barely know this state.

Now that I’ve been living in Florida for more than 15 years, I’ve grown more intrigued of Pennsylvania’s Amish citizens, cities with grit and sophistication and hearty beer heritage. Ah yes, Pennsylvania. We’ll meet again real soon.

In fact, I’m planning a fall trip back to my Western New York hometown with a side trip to Pennsylvania. Where should I go? What should I see?

Too Busy to Plan You Pennsylvania Road Trip? There’s Roadtrip-a-Matic for That

My timing is impeccable since has recently launched the Fantastic Roadtrip-a-Matic, a collection of groovy pa-roadtrips where someone else has already done the planning. Based on interests ranging from shopping to culinary and off the beaten path to leaf peeping (some with sassy names as “Taste Buds on Tour” and “Shunpiker’s Guid’e” travelers can select which itinerary fits their interest and hit the road.

Yeah, I know when it comes to travel it’s about the journey but seriously, who has time to plan these days? Lately, I’m finding when I just hit the road and go, I end up missing really cool things, things I would have known about if I did some research.

This is why Pennsylvania’s Roadtrip-a-Matic is wonderful, it provides itineraries with addresses of activities and attractions and also provides a suggestion on where to eat and stay, based on interest and region of the state. The itineraries can be downloaded into a PDF format and packed along with your maps, or, pull up pa-roadtrips on your smartphone. Don’t forget to lookout for the nearest Auto Body Shop, it’s good to have the option should the unexpected decide to happen.

Choose Your Path: Milk a Cow, Raise a Glass

There are many neat roadtrips I’d like to try but I’m leaning toward the ‘Keystone Country: From Chow-Chow to Chardonnay” itinerary which is an agricultural drive along Dutch country roads with a suggested stay at a farm B&B where I can learn how to milk a cow! The “Taste Buds on Tour: Eat Like a Champ in Pittsburgh” sounds like a foodie’s delight with two days of chowing down in some of Pittsburgh’s best eateries. I’m thinking my parents would enjoy joining me on either one of these trips or my friend Annette, who needs a little goodness in her life.

If you’re about to hit the open road, roof mounted cargo boxes may be a good investment for your car so you can take more of your travel essentials along with you.

Go ahead and visit the PA-roadtrips itineraries and let me know which one you would enjoy. I’d like to know!

And Pennsylvania, looking forward to getting to know you better real soon.
