With the rental car one-way rent across Pennsylvania
What is a one-way-rental?
A one-way rental is the term used when a rental car is returned to another drop-off point than the pick up station, i.e. it is not returned to the point of departure. In most cases, a one-way rental is slightly more expensive than a normal rental car. In some cases, however, you can also beat a bargain, for example if you drive the other way around than most tourists and the car rental company is urgently looking for people to bring their rental cars back to a certain starting point. In Pennsylvania there are many beautiful places that can be optimally combined to a road trip. Read our suggestion in the following "Roadtrip through Pennsylvania".
Roadtrip through Pennsylvania
Start your journey at Philadelphia airport. Receive your pre-rented rental car here and get ready for your Pennsylvania car rental adventure. Take 1-2 days to explore Philadelphia, the second biggest city on the east coast of the United States of America. Over 6 million inhabitants live in Philly. The state capital of Pennsylvania has a lot to offer. Here you will find the Independence National Historic Park with Charpenters' Hall, Congress Hall, Independence Hall, Liberty Bell and the Second Bank of the U.S. Additionally you can explore many cultural highlights and museums as well as trendy restaurants and bars. Then continue north. For example, make a short stop in Allenstown or drive directly to the famous Bushkill Falls, the Niagara Falls in Pennsylvania.
The Bushkill Falls lie deep in the forests of the Pocono Mountains. They are considered by many to be the most spectacular natural spectacle in Pennsylvania and are definitely worth a stop. The falls are composed of eight consecutive waterfalls. Through the forest and around the waterfalls there is a large network of hiking and mountain biking trails. From here, drive 55 miles northwest until you reach the Steamtown National Historic Site.
Steamtown National Historic Site
As the name of the place already suggests, this is a park where the history of the American railway and steam locomotive is taken up. Around the house there is a still working railway line, with which one can also make excursions and tours to the surrounding towns. We suggest that those of you who are not particularly interested in trains should drive on directly to the next view point: Wyalusing Rocks Scenic Overlook.
