The  @ Pennsylvania Road Photos
The Pennsylvania Turnpike may be one of the most popular subjects to many road enthusiasts.  There are numerous websites about the abandoned sections of the highway and the history of the Pike itself.  Naturally, I have pages that add to these numbers.  However, in the pursuit of looking at things differently, PA Road Photos features other aspects of the turnpike that is not as heavily documented.  Sit back and relax as you travel abandoned roadways, stop at an original service plaza, or get some religion turnpike style.  Be sure to visit the various other PA Turnpike sites also to complete your journey on America's First Super Highway!

If you have any photos, information, or ideas for the PA Turnpike Collection at Pennsylvania Road Photos, please e-mail me!
