Did you know that I used to live in PA?

(That's Pennsylvania, for those of you who don't know. I've lived in quite a few different states and Pennsylvania is the only one where people refer to it--almost exclusively!--by it's abbreviation.)

My family moved to a suburb of Philadelphia when I was 16 and then moved away when I was a freshman at BYU--about 2 1/2 years later. I haven't been back since, but boy, would I love to take my kids to PA! I could spend a whole week there, taking my kids to all the historic stuff in Philly, showing them around my old stomping ground in Chester County, sightseeing in the Amish countryside in Lancaster County. We would eat at Shady Maple and get water ice at Rita's and have a picnic at Hibernia Park. I totally know what we would do on a vacation to Pennsylvania, but if you've never been there, you might be at a loss.

That's where pa-roadtrips from comes in!


The Roadtrip-a-Matic takes all the headaches out of planning a trip to an unfamiliar place. It answers the questions "What should we see?" "Where should we eat?" "Where should we stay?" With the Roadtrip-a-Matic, it does the planning--all you do is the packing!

When you use the Roadtrip-a-Matic, you choose one of dozens of preplanned roadtrips--each complete with attractions, maps, and option for eating and lodging, so you know that you're going to love your vacation. There's really something for everyone! I spent a long time browsing the roadtrips and I finally decided I would take my little family on the Kidsylvania: Welcome to the City of Brotherly Love roadtrip. What really sold me is the Please Touch museum. How fun!! There's so much to do and see in Philadelphia and I love the idea of showing my kids the cradle of American independence. But I would have to take a little detour to the west to Coatesville :)

Have you ever been to Pennsylvania? If you haven't, take some time to check out the Roadtrip-a-Matic--where would you go?

Awesome! With my husband being from a small farm town in Idaho, I was nervous when he was coming to visit PA for the first time but decided to show him Amish country BEFORE Philly to ease him into worked :)
