Pennsylvania: A State that is home to many mountains, and major industries such as coal and steel. Much history in this state including the Liberty Bell, yet to many a symbol of the honest, hard working class in North America. Throughout the State driving is a pleasure, be it in the back roads getting to the Ghost Town Bicycle trail or travelling north of Pittsburgh on Interstate 79 or further south in the foothills using Interstate 79 . One of my personal favorites is driving Hwy 15 that bisects the length of Pennsylvania. This one is especially scenic.
From one side of the State to the other, our baseball interests have taken us to see both the Pirates and the Phillies . Even Williamsport, home of the Little League World Series of Baseball is located in Pennsylvania.
