Book a cozy vacation home and explore the rich history of Pennsylvania
Pennsylvania is the perfect destination for travelers looking to experience a range of entertainment and sights on one vacation. The state offers both historical attractions, like Gettysburg National Military Park and the Liberty Bell, as well as natural beauty in the form of stunning forests and rolling hills. Pennsylvania is also home to the dynamic cities of Pittsburgh and Philadelphia.
With historic cities and towns like Gettysburg, and Lancaster, Pennsylvania is a haven for history buffs. When considering where to stay, keep vacation rentals in mind. For modern facilities combined with privacy and flexibility, a vacation home is ideal. From your home away from home, head to Amish sights in Pennsylvania Dutch Country, quaint yet cosmopolitan Philly, or any one of the state's scenic state parks.
Gastronomic delights in Pennsylvania
Whether you like sweet treats or salty snacks, the cuisine in Pennsylvania will satisfy your cravings. A Philadelphia cheesesteak is a local classic, and is not to be missed. Two famous spots where you can try this signature sandwich, consisting of thinly sliced, perfectly cooked steak topped with cheese on a roll, are Pat’s King of Steaks and Geno’s Steak, both in Philadelphia.
For a lighter snack, your best option might be the classic pretzel. German immigrants brought this snack to Pennsylvania in the 19th century, and it gained instant popularity. Even today, the state is credited for producing around 80% of the pretzels consumed in the US.
Famous historical attractions in Pennsylvania
The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania played a major role in the Revolutionary War. As such, Independence National Historical Park in Philadelphia is a key sight for history buffs and culture-minded visitors. The park is home to the famous Independence Hall, where the Declaration of Independence was signed.
Another historical attraction in Philadelphia is the Quaker-inspired Eastern State Penitentiary, which opened in 1829. Once regarded as the most high-tech and expensive penitentiary in the world, the jail housed notorious criminals like Al Capone and Willie Sutton throughout its history. Since 1994, it has been a museum with tours in operation.
