Breezewood, PA
Region: The Alleghenies

The Town of Motels is where the Pennsylvania Turnpike, the Lincoln Highway, and Route 70 meet - and where weary travelers have rested since General Forbes widened the original Native American trail into a wagon road. The Forbes Road became the Lincoln Highway, and when the Turnpike was completed in 1940, the stage was set. After the construction of Interstate 70, Breezewood grew into the sprawling, charmingly kitschy town it is today. Families, truckers, souvenir collectors, and photographers all appreciate the visual variety and commercial convenience of this traveler's oasis. For those suffering from neon fatigue or car-weariness, the simple beauty of Felten's Mill Covered Bridge provides respite. Built-in 1892, the 100-foot bridge is not open to vehicular traffic.
