Restaurants in Breezewood, Pa.

The 375 mile trip was uneventful, traffic was light, and so we made very good time. Our first rest stop was in Breezewood, Pennsylvania to get a bite to eat.  This area is basically a town of nothing but every kind of fast food restaurant you can think of, along with other restaurants, hotels and lots of gas stations. After we finish our meal at Wendy’s, our journey continued by getting onto the Pennsylvania Turn Pike. This is a highway through the Pennsylvania part of the Allegany Mountains, and from Breezewood to the Ohio State line only cost $10.00. There is another route you can drive which is not a toll route, but this was the most direct way to get to Akron.

The scenery was great driving through the mountains, and we had a fun trip!

Once we arrived in Akron, we found our hotel and checked in. After getting into our room, Mike and I went to the local Outback Steak House and brought us all back dinner and so Lena could watch her favorite show, True Blood on HBO. Unfortunately, my steak was extremly undercooked, so we called the restaurant and the manager will be sending a gift card to our home back in Annapolis. Maybe they knew we were watching True Blood and thought I wanted my steak rare! ;)

After dinner, we had to wait for a rollaway bed to be brought up to our room for my daughter to use. There was only one person working the desk in the lobby and he had to wait for the night person to come in so he could get a bed and bring it up to us. Finaly at 11:00 pm, the bed arrived and we all called it a night. 

Tomorrow we head to Canton, Ohio and then, Cedar Point!!
