BREEZEWOOD, Pa. — This so-called “Town of Motels” and fast food restaurants and gas stations and semi trucks is usually a place you can’t avoid if you’re traveling between Washington, D.C., and Pittsburgh or points westward. If you’re going to or from the Pennsylvania Turnpike, you must pass through town — there’s not much of a town here to speak of — to get to or from Interstate 70 in Maryland.
This has long been an annoyance to long-distance travelers, but an economic boost to all the businesses here.
On this trip, I’m passing through Breezewood without paying any tolls thanks to sticking to the Lincoln Highway. Onward to Pittsburgh!
