Rust belt state. Roads are pretty bad in general. Houses are old and usually stack on top of each other, even in the small towns. Little population growth. Many western PA counties and cities have been losing people since the 1930's. PA people are well... there seems to be more assholes than nice people. But overall the state is pretty with lots of hills, especially in the western part. It's very similar to many Appalachain states, (yes, we have our share of hillbillies too) but the cities and houses are alot older and the people aren't quite as nice. PA native here so I know. The smart people move out before they turn 30. I am moving out of this state SOON. Why anyone would move here is a mystery to me.
Welcome to Pennsylvania, the grittiest/roughest state north of the Mason Dixon Line.

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!


You: Orlly?

Your friend: Yarlly!

The most frightfully backwards country in all of the United States. The population consists of scumbags and life ruining fuck ups along with the cheapest and ugliest whores. It's an embarrassment to call it part of the United States and the world would be a better place if Pennsylvania never existed. The people are the plague and it's a decaying carcass that attracts maggots like a magnet. It's the complete opposite of "the friendly state". The majority of the people who live there are nothing but a lost cause. It's a dying, dirty, and dilapidated shithole. It's known as "the other death sentence" for a reason since it's such a dead place.
If you plan on living the good dream life, don't go to Pennsylvania or it will become nothing but a terrible hellish nightmare. You will lose everything and become someone you're not. Your life will get completely ruined and the world will fall apart all around you. If you're not in Pennsylvania, don't come. If you do come then prepare to abandon all hope, for your dreams and good memories will die.

A state in the Northeast that is an abosolute waste of land. Pennsylvania all it has is coal corn and cities nothing else. Let me give you some advice if you want to be a big state of shit go be greedy somewhere else.

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.
