Going by car from Philadelphia to Niagara Falls looking for interesting places/stops on the way. Love scenic routes as well. Have a couple of days at my disposal.
I do not know how familiar you are with Philadelphia but going north from there you can explore Gettysburg National Military Park Museum and Visitor Center or go by way of Ephrata and visit the Cloister or go to Williamsport (Pennsylvania) which is the birthplace of Littel League Baseball and annually hosts the Little League World Seris in late summer. US 11 from Harrisburg is a scenic drive along the Susquehanna River to Williamsport. Continue up to Painted Post and visit the Corning Museum Of Glass Welcome Center which is nearby.
