The Keystone State invites you to taste its pretzels while hiding from a licensed hunter on a covered bridge. At least that’s how your day will be if you combine all the things Pennsylvania does best.
Pennsylvania is one of the most populous of American states and also the snack capital of the world. We’re not sure if they eat anything except potato chips and chocolate bars. But at least you’ll be sated with history: the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall in Philadelphia, the Battle of Gettysburg site, and Washington’s Headquarters in Valley Forge are among the nation’s most cherished landmarks. Locals also know how to turn a whole town into a piece of art: Pittsburgh, the City of Bridges is the new cinematic mecca. Re-watch your favorite movies and see if you can spot where they were shot.
The biggest cities are home to 21 Fortune 500 companies, including Comcast, Rite Aid, and Kraft Heinz, as well as 7 top schools with the best of the University of Pennsylvania, Carnegie Mellon University, and Pennsylvania State University.
