Counties of Pennsylvania
While encompassing the Laurel Mountains, Westmoreland County has a nice mix of things to do and see. There is strip mall shopping along route 30, restaurants, parks and a family oriented amusement/water park called Idlewild. Westmoreland allows you to get away from the big city atmosphere of Pittsburgh and enjoy many small towns with local vendors. There are accommodations that range from campgrounds, bed & breakfasts to luxury resorts. Three famous roads go right through the heart of the county – route 30, route 22 and oh yes route 66.
Take a day trip or an adventure filled weekend driving the scenic roads of Pennsylvania and the surrounding area. Travel in the fall to see the array of colors. Explore during the summer months and enjoy the many attractions along the way.
