Many call Pennsylvania the birthplace of America, and not without a reason. Philadelphia is where the Founding Fathers gathered to draft the Declaration of Independence and the first U.S. Constitution. Born as a Quaker colony that inspired religious and ethnic tolerance, today’s Pennsylvania is a welcoming place for visitors from any part of the globe. The state’s biggest cities boast Italian, Irish, Chinese neighborhoods. And the countryside is inhabited by German and Dutch communities.
Thanks to its ethnic diversity Pennsylvania has a range of dialects. So if you find yourself having trouble making sense out of certain words and expressions, remember, it’s not you. You may be conversing with someone who speaks Atlantic Midland or Appalachian.
If you have college age kids or looking to get a degree yourself, Pennsylvania is the place to be. There you will have a choice of a few high ranking colleges and universities such as Penn State, the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Pittsburgh, or Carnegie Mellon.
The Keystone State ranks among the top ten economies in the US. And if it were its own country, it’s economy would rank 19th largest in the world.
