Located in the Northeast of the United States and the Great Lakes region, Pennsylvania is a scenic and varied state - from Lake Erie in the north to the Appalachian Mountains in the interior and a stretch of Atlantic shoreline to the south. Not only does it have stunning scenery, it also has the metropolis of Philadephia, which offers an interesting mix of architecture, world-class culture and a rich history.
Philadelphia International Airport is the state's largest, most convenient airport. It's easy to reach downtown Philadelphia via train, shuttle bus or taxi. One may want to hire a car on holiday in Pennsylvania, which is an ideal way to explore the state. The best time of year to visit is from Spring to Autumn, when many visitors come to enjoy the colourful foliage, but the weather can widely vary depending on the region, so it's best to research ahead of time. The time zone is GMT-5.
Philadelphia has an important history. It played an essential role for during the American Revolution, and was the site of the ratification of the Declaration of Independence, which visitors can learn more about at the interactive National Constitution Center. Another piece of history can be found at the Independence National Historical Park, home of the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, where the US Constitution was signed. The Philadelphia Museum of Art, which contains masterpieces from around the world, is another must-see. Here you'll find the famous steps which Sylvester Stallone ran up in the Rocky movies. In the state capital Harrisburg, visitors can tour the Pennsylvania State Capitol building, which is one of the most impressive architectural gems in the state. Nature lovers should visit the Allegheny National Forest, a protected old-growth forest with many outdoor activities, including boating and canoeing, biking and hiking trails. From nature to history, Pennsylvania holidays have something for everyone.
