Driving the Laurel Highlands Scenic Byway
While you can use the Laurel Highlands Scenic Byway as a jumping off point for your own explorations on foot or bicycle, raft or rails, you will also find plenty of history and art along the way.
Near its northeast boundary, the Byway offers easy access to Fort Ligonier. Near its southern end and its intersection with the Historic National Road, it either accesses or places you within a short connecting drive of all these points of interest:
- Braddock’s Grave
- The Fort Necessity National Battlefield
- All three Frank Lloyd Wright sites in the region – Fallingwater, Kentuck Knob and the Duncan House. I am a huge Frank Lloyd Wright fan so I will definitely be checking out this historic landmark!
Put your car to good use and explore the Laurel Highlands historic driving tour! You’ll find many places of historic or artistic interest, and of course sheer beauty along the way. Lots of opportunities to get out, stretch, and breathe in the beauty of our land. And, ultimately, a lifetime of memories.
