Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania — Nicknamed “The Keystone State” for its important position between the heavyweight Eastern Seaboard urban centers of New York and Washington, D.C., Pennsylvania is more than just a pass-through state, as evidenced by its bustling cosmopolitan cities, quaint rural communities, and nation-defining historical sites. Rustic sylvan foothills, tranquil lakes, and sprawling pastoral meadows offer a plethora of year-round outdoor recreational opportunities, while Philadelphia and Pittsburgh are known for vibrant arts and culture scenes and spirited displays of history.

Why Go

For the historic Philadelphia streets, chocolate in Hershey, the Poconos, Gettysburg, and the steel-city of Pittsburgh.
