Get Your Motor Running...
Lincoln Highway Park MapThe Lincoln Highway, U.S. Route 30 sparked a country's imagination as the nation's first coast-to-coast highway, running from New York to San Francisco and igniting a wave of automobile tourism in the early 20th century. In Pennsylvania, the Lincoln Highway Heritage Corridor extends just east of Pittsburgh to beyond Gettysburg.

...Head out on the Highway
The mountainous topography that you will encounter along the route will have you catching your breath, and stopping to take a look. The countryside will reveal a variety of quaint Pennsylvania towns — Ligonier, Schellsburg, Bedford, and McConnellsburg to name a few — where antiquing and unique shopping experiences take on an added dimension.

Looking for Adventure...
Along the way you'll pass five of Pennsylvania's impressive state parks. Laurel Mountain, Shawnee, Cowan's Gap, and Caledonia State Parks are all found along U.S. 30's historic and scenic route. If you like camping, hiking, fishing, biking, wildlife watching or just about any other outdoor adventure you're bound to find it in one of these excellent state parks.

...And Whatever Comes our Way
Continue to the Old Jail in Chambersburg, where basement dungeons were used as a stop for the Underground Railroad. For Civil War(this link will open in a new window) buffs, the road leads to Gettysburg and points beyond.
