Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Unlike today"s interstate highway system, the earlier routes offered ever-changing scenes and roadside attractions. Although the Lincoln Highway crosses the entire country from New York City to San Francisco, the route it follows through Pennsylvania offers some of the most diverse and beautiful scenery. From the relatively flat terrain in the eastern part of the state to the mountains in the west, the highway passes through large cities and small towns, and almost all of these areas offered something to the motoring public. The popularity of the automobile gave rise to some of the highway"s greatest attractions, such as Bill"s Place and the S. S. Grand View Ship Hotel, which was destroyed by fire in 2001. Along Pennsylvania"s Lincoln Highway is a trip back into time, and it recalls the days when getting to a destination was half the fun.
