Pennsylvania itinerary

Jump to last reply

I am going to meet my husband in Philly after 3 days in NYC. Would you please look over my itinerary and give me feedback. It may be a bit tight and we are open to adding a day or 2 if needed. Also, if you see anything I shouldn't miss please let me know. We have done Winterthur, Longwood Gardens, etc a few years ago during October so won't do them again (loved that area).

Monday, Oct 16 arrive in Philly in the PM (4 nights)
Tues., Oct 17 Independence Hall and other sites in that area, i.e. Congress Hall, Nat'l Constitution Center etc
Wed. Oct 18 Eastern State Penitentiary and Philadelphia Museum of Art (open till 8:45 on Wed
Thurs -City Hall , Reading Terminal Market and maybe Masonic temple or just explore the city
Friday- Oct 20- pick up car- maybe Chanticleer Garden, Valley Forge and then to Lancaster County (1 night) (what about where Washington crossed the Delaware, I do not see much about that)
Saturday- visit Lancaster county, (It is not advisable to visit on Sundays) then drive to Gettysburg (2 nights)
Sunday, Oct 22- visit Gettysburg
Monday, October 23- finish Gettysburg if we need more time. Drive to Harper's Ferry then to Winchester, VA (2 nights)
Tuesday, October 24 My husband had a great great grandfather who fought in the battle of Winchester so he wants to explore the area.
Wednesday- have some time to spare and then drive to Falling Water (we can not tour the homes on Wednesday (1 night)
Thursday- tour Falling Water and probably another Frank Lloyd Wright home (s) We want to get reservations ASAP. Then possibly drive to Pittsburgh or spend another night and just drive to the Pittsburgh airport the next day.

Can't decide if we want to go to Pittsburgh for 1 night/day and will we need another day in Winchester or somewhere else. We visited Virginia a few years ago and did quite a bit.
