Artisan Ways: The Alleghenies and Valleys of the Susquehanna
Artisan Ways The crafty side of PA

Duration: Two days and two nights

When you take a trip along the Artisan Trail known as Art Thrives on Route 45, you'll take away many things — an appreciation for handcraftsmanship, a oneness with our curvy back roads, not to mention a trunk full of some one-of-a-kind art pieces. Named for the numerous Purple Heart heroes who made this corridor home, the Purple Heart Highway celebrates their memory with a thriving trail of art with heart. Historic architecture, museums, artists and other craftspeople line Route 45, along with charming B&Bs, inns and guesthouses.
