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.
true Pennsylvania girls rule.

land granted to william penn by king of england. the statue of william penn on city hall has him holding the charter, which just looks like he's holding a boner. home of yuengling, the band cinderella and wawa. better than most people make it out to be. the home of the simpsons.
pennsylvania is much better than new york, new jersey and delaware combined.

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?

I've lived near the Philadelphia area most of my life. I also spent about 6 weeks in northwest Texas, 8 months in Tampa Bay, and the last 5 months in Central Virginia. Compared to all of those, Pennsylvania is awesome. The big city was an hour away, the mountains were about 2 hours from where I lived, and the beach was close enough that we could make a day of it. Philadelphia may be part of a megalopolis, but you don't have to go very far before you're in the country. You get to experience the best of both worlds when you live in PA. Yes, we have attitude, but it's not like we'll never talk to outsiders. We just don't talk to them if they tell us we're all assholes when the farthest north they've ever even been is DC, which isn't even part of the North. We're actually some of the nicest people in the country, we just like to drive fast.
That place is really diverse. It's a Pennsylvania.

Pennsylvania is awesome to visit, but it sux to actually live there

Pennsylvania is underrated as a "shitty hick state". Well I know that may be true of the pittsbrugh area (even though they have awesome snowboarding mountains). Philadelphia is basically a little bit historic town and a lotta bit ghetto nation. Theres at least 2 gang shootings there a day. The suburbs of Pa are really the place to be though. I mean where else do you have rich kids, poor kids, dropouts, 11-year old seniors and drugs galore?! The weather is as unpredictable as whether or not your parents are having an affair. One day last year is snowed and the very next day the weather was 70 degrees and sunny. When I meet people out of state I usually hear things like, "Do you see the liberty bell every year for field trips?" "Are you amish?" and "Whats Wawa?" Myself, I have never seen the liberty bell and know that amish people wouldn't even go out of state due to lack of cars. As for Wawa, Pennsylvanians know its the greatest place ever invented. The amish are in Lancaster everyone knows that and there arent as many of them as people think. I don't know what to think of northern Pa, I'm starting to think it doesn't exist. I've lived here all my life and have never heard a thing about Northern Pa or met anyone who lived there. If you live there, let me know. As for the shitty roads, In the last 2 years Im pretty sure all the roads near my house have been ripped up and expanded somehow, so basically, yeah. Shitty roads. So far this is the only state I've ever seen where a hick-filled general store (which is awesome by the way) that is located less than a mile away from multi-million dollar mansions. I guess Pa is also notorious for Bam Margera. He makes appearances at Boarderline (a nearby skate park) and a lot of people say hes actually an asshole. The most annoying thing about Pennsylvania is probably Penn State. Supposedly, an awesome school, but obviously, brainwashes its students into obsessing over it. There are so many diehard Eagles and Steelers fans in this state, it is unheard of. Sure, we don't have beaches or hawt celebs, we have shitty roads and our sports teams suck, but we still own all.
Loser: "Dude, Pennsylvania is so lame."
Me: "Are there cannibalistic, child-stealing, rocksalt-shooting, circus-escaping, inbreeding clans of albinos in your state?!"
Loser: "..no"
Me: "Yeah, thats what I thought fuckface"

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.
