Stretching all the way from the East Coast to the edge of the Midwest, Pennsylvania offers a wide range of experiences for those who take the time to explore. Some of the most important moments in American History took place in Philadelphia, while Pittsburgh was front and center during the Industrial Revolution. Outside the cities lies pastoral Pennsylvania Dutch Country and the deep forests of the Appalachian Mountains.
