I truly hope there is something quaint left to see on the LH. I've scanned maps online to see where to avoid suburban sprawl and where it looks like nice rural or small town routes. We are not not touristy types (ie, no outlet malls, Amish buggy rides, theme parks). We're interested in diners or local cafes with clean, fresh, good food (not low quality greasy roadfood), historic inns with truly original or fine food, quaint clean older motels with reasonable rates, or cool places worth splurging on. We have two days in Philadelphia to start out (art museums, BYOB high end restaurants), will stay in Pittsburgh a night or two (the inclines, see various neighborhoods, ride the inclines), a stopover in Gettysburg for history's sake, and probably book a Fallingwater tour on the western end of things.
Any don't miss suggestions for routes, food, lodging? Thanks, road warriors!
