Historic Pennsylvania

American history at its best can found in Pennsylvania. The birthplace of the nation of America as we know it was at Independence Hall in Philadelphia, the fifth-largest city in the U.S. Pretty impressive, eh? 

Well, add this to the mix: the small town of Gettysburg, where the Union was preserved at the turning point of the Civil War, is also in Pennsylvania. Still not enough history for you? Also within state boundaries is Valley Forge, where General George Washington's troops braved bitter cold and miserable conditions in the fight for U.S. independence. 

In addition to all of its history, Pennsylvania cities offer metropolitan style with touches of old-world charm. Philadelphia's close proximity to other large Northeastern cities makes it a prime destination for business as well as pleasure. Philly is full of eclectic shops, diverse restaurants and dynamic nightlife. While you're there, take a look at the Liberty Bell, forget about that diet and try an authentic Philly cheese steak sandwich!
