Our entire family loves road trips that explore history and nature. In 2018 we decided to explore Pennsylvania’s Laurel Highlands over spring break. The Laurel Highlands are a beautiful mountainous area in western Pennsylvania not far from Pittsburgh.This area is full of fascinating history and gorgeous scenery–from the waterfalls of Ohiopyle State Park and Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater to the resilient city of Johnstown.
In Part One of this 2 part blog series, we’ll explore Ohiopyle State Park, Fallingwater, and Allegheny Portage Railroad National Historic Site. In Part Two, we’ll check out the city of Johnstown and the Johnstown Flood National Memorial.
