One of the shittiest countries in The United States. Although Pennsylvania has chocolate, that makes up for it's shit. Allentown, Norristown, (Lol Chuck Norris?) Philadelphia, and a bunch of other places are all in Pennsylvania. There is every sex disease known in Quakertown High School, so stay away from that. But Pennsylvania does have Dorney Park, which is pretty much 120 years old.
You: Let's go to Pennsylvania!

state with crappy roads and a town called Intercourse; the only good things about it are the sports teams of Pittsburgh; only state where people call their state by its abreviation (people commonly say "we are visiting from PA", not "we are visiting from Pennsylvania")
The Pittsburgh Steelers are the greatest thing in Pennsylvania.

Cold as hell expecially when you live in Pittsburgh- It usually sucks. But hey- the skiing/boarding is good.
Pennsylvania sucks when its -25 degrees there.

Translates into "Penn's Woods." Pittsburgh on the west, with Philadelphia on the east and Alabama in the middle. This state is part of the Apallachain Mountains and is hilly all over. It has the most rednecks of any northern state. It also has the highest Amish population in the U.S.

It's a nice state to visit but you probably wouldn't want to live there. Nice places to visit in PA include Hershey Park in Hershey, the Liberty Bell, the Phily Mint, the U.S. Constitution Center, Independence Hall, the Betsy Ross House, the Philadelphia Art Museum and the Franklin Institute. PA is the birthplace of America and is where the Declaration of Independence and Constitution were drafted in Philadelphia. When driving through Pennsylvania, you will quickly notice how idyllic it is. But you wouldnt necessarily want to live in this state. It's Rust Belt central where its cities of all sizes have been plagued by job losses in heavy manufacturing. It is not uncommon to see numerous Pennsylvania river towns plagued by air pollution due to their steel plants, especially in western Pennsylvania. The roads are also bad, especially in small towns. The roads are old, narrow and undermaintained. Even Interstates 80, 70 and 76 have no shoulder at all, so you better hope your car doesn't break down. PA probabaly has more potholes than any state, except Michigan.
Pennsylvania is a lovely, picturesque state to drive through but thats the only good thing about this state. I would NEVER live there.

Worst state ever. End of story.
You: Mom, what's the worst state ever?

Answer: Pennsylvania

The state that is the epicenter for much noteworthy United States history and home to many of the nation's great pizza shops.

It is also one of the few states where you can't buy alcohol in grocery stores (or buy alcohol on Sundays, period). The roads are arguably the worst on the planet, the speed limits are low, and the weather is famous for its ability to go from kick-ass to suck-ass in 5 minutes flat, and stay that way for decades on end. The education system is poor, most citizens are missing teeth, the major cities are shot to hell and crime-ridden, and daily drug murders happen in every town between Philadelphia and New York.
Fuck this place, I'm moving to Arizona.

Where what some consider the happiest people in America (the Amish) almost never show it, where the "gay Dutch" hate gays, where you can't find anything to eat between Philadelphia airport and Lancaster, where it takes a year to get a farmer at a market you see two or three times a week to make conversation with you, and where you get fat, get gray, and die. I gained 30 pounds in three years. Probably the snack capital of the country, with no park districts I've seen to walk those calories off (that would require foresight, education, and civic planning). None of the middle age folk I got to know gave me any sense they liked me 'til I was moving.

Go ahead, fall in love with it in December, 'cause most of PA was made for Christmas (farmhouse kitsch, anyone?), but for culture's sake, don't move there. The reverse of Narnia, it's always Christmas in Pennsyltucky, but never charmed. Even an instutution as powerful, monied, dispursed, and excellent as Penn State can't address the ignorance of the populace. Trust me. If you don't have an AARP card, don't move there.
Philadelphia hip-hoppers The Roots celebrate their city's heritage, but they get to leave Pennsylvania on tour. Home of Constitution Hall, the Pennsylvania of today hasn't seen a civil liberty it didn't try to eradicate at the polls.
