“What a great road to take a Sunday drive”
Reviewed 11 September 2013

I only wish there was more open on Sundays. This is a great route to just take off on and grab a dinner along the way or hit some shops or just enjoy the view.

“More interesting than the turnpike.”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

I've driven all of PA's lincoln Highway form Philadelphia to Pittsburgh and i especially love the Heritage Corridor from Ligonier to Abbottstown. Yes it is longer and it is mostly two lane driving, but how nice to be able to take tthe time and enjoy the scenery and look to find some of the old unrestored locations along the Old Lincoln Highway. Enjoy the art from the murals on the the sides of building, arti decorated gas pumps to the Roadsid Giants created by high school students to memorialize the Lincoln Highway. It is definitely a trip back in time and for once not a highway littered with adult bookstores and fast food stops every five miles. For spedd and car jockeying take the turn pike, but you will miss Mr. Ed's Emporium and Elephant Museum, quaint towns and beautifully restored and maintained buildings.l,

“so what?”
Reviewed 26 July 2013

just a country road. tourist sights are few & very far between. your tax dollars wasted (and then some) on the old coffee pot (hotel) now moved to Bedford Fairgrounds. Ship hotel at "grandview" was burnt by arson & its former sight is interesting but nothing I'd drive more than 100 feet to see. Most of road is tedious to drive.
