Look Up, Pennsylvania! Walking Tours of 50 Towns in the Free Stateby Doug Gelbert
Pennsylvania has towns that were founded by the British, towns that were founded by the Germans, towns that were founded by the French. Pennsylvania has towns built in the mountains, towns built on a Great Lake, towns built on great rivers. Pennsylvania has towns built on lumber, towns built on iron, towns built on coal, towns built on oil, towns built on railroads. Heck, Pennsylvania even has a town built on chocolate.
There is no better way to see Pennsylvania towns than on foot. And there is no better way to appreciate what you are looking at than with a self-guided walking tour.
A walking tour can be many things. Interested in heritage tourism? Looking for an educational day trip for the kids? Need a fun exercise plan? Want to find subjects to take great pictures? Whether you are visiting a new town or just out to look at your own town in a new way, a Pennsylvania walking tour from walkthetown.com is ready to explore when you are.
Each of the 55 walking tours in LOOK UP, PENNSYLVANIA! describes a mix of historical, architectural, cultural and ecclesiastical landmarks. Street addresses and step-by-step directions lead the way. A quick primer on identifying architectural styles seen on Pennsylvania's streets is included.
So look twice before crossing the street and get out and look up, Pennsylvania!
