Pennsylvania State Travel Guide


Pennsylvania is the 33rd-largest state by area and the Appalachian Mountains run right through the state. The capital is Harrisburg but the two largest cities are Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. The state is one of the 13 original colonies and it came into being in 1681 as a result of a royal land grant to William Penn, the son of the state’s namesake. It was the second state to ratify the United States Constitution, on December 12, 1787.

Pennsylvania has 27 National Park Units that include National Parks, National Historical Sites & Parks, National Historic Trails, National Heritage Areas, National Wild & Scenic Rivers and more.
