Philadelphia Art Museum, Liberty Bell, Check out any Philly sports game while your here, and definitely pick up a cheese steak.

Check out Gettysburg. Very historic sights to see, just ask Wikipedia.

Philadelphia is a wonderful place filled with history. I attend Shippensburg University and Gettysburg is another great town to visit. This state is filled with history and is the foundation for the creation of what we have today.

I'd give a good reason, but, I moved out of state. Guess there's no reason to visit now.

In Pa if you break down on the side of the road and dont have what you need to fix it you only need to wait a few mins until someone stops to help. Dont take advantage of the locals though because most carry a gun or multiple knives.

If you like food ask the locals (politely) where their favorite diner is and what the specialty is. Back home (Macungie Pa Lehigh County) there are more diners within a 15 mile radius than there are in most counties of other states. Each has a specialty and you will be hard pressed to find anything better. Most common are Pirogies, Rubens, and Apple dumplings.

If you want good 4 wheeling there is Rausch Creek, Rock Run, and soon to come is the Northumberland County OHV park. You can also ask the locals to show you the trails.

I think there are more miles of creeks in this state than most if not all. There is good fishing in all of them. There are also some great farm pond gems hidden all over if you like bass.

Of course you cant forget about beer. Yuengling is my personal favorite beer as well as many others in the state. It is Americas oldest brewery at 181 years old. Most people from out of state either beg me to show them to the nearest beer distributor or have never heard of it.

As far as driving, once your out of the city you are going to love the view and hate the roads themselves. PennDot is always working on roads (no where near as bad as Jersey) but they only seem to make them worse. They redid a railroad crossing back home and now if you hit it over 40 mph you launch your car into the air.
