Exploring Pennsylvania is a delightful journey that encompasses the best of both worlds – from the bustling city of Philadelphia in the east to the vibrant city of Pittsburgh in the west. In Philadelphia, you can delve into American history by visiting iconic landmarks such as Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell, indulge in the local food scene with a classic cheesesteak, and immerse yourself in the arts and culture that thrive in this cosmopolitan city. On the other side of the state, Pittsburgh offers a unique blend of industrial heritage and modern innovation, with its iconic steel bridges, world-class museums, and lively neighborhoods. In between, you can venture into the serene beauty of the Pocono Mountains, hike the Appalachian Trail, or explore the picturesque landscapes of Amish country.

Please note that the estimated temperature, rainfall and recommended months of when to go are based on Philadelphia’s weather patterns
