About Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania is like a miniature America all in one state: vast stretches of rolling green farmland all across its center, with the wildly busy metropolis of Philadelphia on the eastern edge and the more laid-back culture hub of Pittsburgh to the west. Philly spans the nation's past and future, home to Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, Betsy Ross and Ben Franklin's homes,—not to mention Eagles football, brilliant soul and hip-hop music, and the giant Comcast tower. Pittsburgh has boomed in the 21st century, with new neighborhoods growing up around Carnegie Mellon University and the health care/high-tech industries while traditional local love for the Steelers and Pirates flourishes. Between the two cities, annual happenings like the PA Farm Show bring together the state's robust agricultural community.
