Artisan Ways: Laurel Highlands and The Alleghenies
Artisan Ways Handmade and Road Ready

Duration: Two days and one night

Here among the meandering blacktop and handsome mountains, there's a bounty of art treasures just waiting to be discovered. Get ready for the Handmade Along the Highway tour, which combines old-world artisans with local materials into a dozen marketplace gift shops along the famed Route 30. This is where handmade means made by the hands in front of you, not a factory a continent and a slow-boat container away. Revel in sturdy, well-made goods for the home, for your house-sitter or for yourself. Just keep an eye out for the Handmade Along the Highway signs in shops, and you'll find so much handmade art you'll need more hands to get it home.
