South Florida Sun-Sentinel (Sunday) - - Travel & Life - By Beth J. Harpaz As­so­ci­ated Press

This year marks the 50th an­niver­sary of the clas­sic PBS chil­dren’s tele­vi­sion show “Mis­ter Rogers’ Neigh­bor­hood,” hosted by the late Fred Rogers. A new doc­u­men­tary “Won’t You Be My Neigh­bor?” has helped rekin­dle in­ter­est in his legacy.

Those who grew up watch­ing the show, which aired from 1968 to 2001, along with fans of the new film, may want to plan a trip on Pennsylvania’s Fred Rogers Trail.

The trail, pro­moted by VisitPA.com, comes with an in­vi­ta­tion to “lace up your ten­nis shoes” and “zip up your cardi­gan,” just like Mis­ter Rogers did in the in­tro­duc­tion to ev­ery episode. The three-day itin­er­ary ranges A set from the old PBS show “Mis­ter Rogers’ Neigh­bor­hood” is on dis­play at the Se­na­tor John Heinz His­tory Cen­ter in Pittsburgh.
