A state in the northeastern United States. One of the first states. Its major cities are Philadelphia in the east and Pittsburgh in the west. Central PA is filled with beautiful countryside and the capital, Harrisburg, also to several Amish farms (go to Lancaster if you want to see a good example). Although PA doesn't have the best roads in the country, it is full of beautiful scenery and friendly people. It is also where our nation began. The Declaration of Independence was signed in Philadelphia, the nation's first capital, on July 4th, 1776. Other significant states to see if you like American history would be Massachusetts and Virginia, correct me if I missed one. I don't know much about Pittsburgh, I apologize, so could someone from Pittsburgh back me up?
I have lived in Pennsylvania all my life and plan to stay here if I don't go down South.

Go Flyers!!!!

IN CONGRESS, JULY 4, 1776
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America

"When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation."

suck on that, California (and Florida too)

I think only people that live in Pennsylvania should be posting opinonated stuff on here,hmm?
I grew up next to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. Yes we have two different Super Wal-Marts and a Super Target. But we also have a couple different Starbucks incase you city slickers come by :) We also have a large array of over populated fast food restuarants,including many different McDonalds restuarants.
But we still have Starbucks :DDD
Home of the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins,Pittsburgh Steelers,Philadelphia Eagles,and Penn State Lions.

(and for the record,we have an Abercrombie,a Hollister,and a couple different American Eagles. so put that in your pipe and smoke it.)

On a side note: We aren't all trailer parks and cow farms,assholes. We have indoor plumbing. I didn't grow up picking up cow crap every morning.

Hmm. No ones brought up the fact that us Pittsburghians have an awesome accent and talk 200 miles an hour. Pittsburghese i think its called. And the scenery is amazing. PA isnt completely taken over by industry, so you can see hills rolling on for miles. And ok, so there are a lot of weird places like Eighty-four where you get absolutely no cable or phone lines (I actually have friends who live there..), but I think the people here are a lot nicer than you think.
Visit PA and take some notes, eh?

To all of you clueless people who have written embelished versions of what you think my state is, you can now return to NJ and NY., its because of the influx from these to states that property taxes & crime has risen. If you find us in bad attitude it might be because you rude monied people are taking away a simple way of life. For the record NE PA has 2 new beautiful casinos, true roads are deplorable, thats why we in PA would like to see tolls on major highways so that all you NY & NJ commuters claiming part time resident status here in PA pay your fair share.
PENNSYLVANIA MORE THAN YOU IDIOTS THINK

A nice state on the East Coast. Pennsylvania is divided into three sections..

1.) Philadelphia and the East are filled with snotty WASPs and JAPs who think that they're sooo New York.
2.) Pittsburgh and the West are filled with ethnic people with hard work ethics (from old steel mill/coal mine days).
3.) Central is an endless piece of nothing, filled with mountains (the Appalachian trail), and Penn State fans.

The suburbs of Philly are by far the nicest places in the state, and even on the East Coast. Drexel Hill, Gladwyne, and Wyomissing are the best of course.

The roads do suck, it's true, but if you put out the money to attend one of the many private or prep schools in the area, the education you'll receive is top shelf.

And you can buy alcohol on Sundays. Also home to the second biggest mall in the country, King of Prussia. (Named after *gasp* the KING of PRUSSIA).
Hey, we're not all Amish... just Lancaster!
