Welcome to Pennsylvania!
The Appalachian Plateau covers more than half the area of the state. Many historic sites and parks throughout the state have been preserved and are under federal ownership, such as Gettysburg National Military Park and Independence and Valley Forge national historical parks. The Piedmont Region in the Southeast is very productive farmland and is the reason that agriculture represents one of the state’s major industries. The state continues to produce much of the nation’s specialty steel and an abundance of coal. With the addition of high technology and manufacturing, Pennsylvania is one of the most prosperous states in the U.S.
A variety of climates can be found though you can expect cold winters and humid summers throughout the region. The western areas near Lake Erie can receive over 100 inches of snowfall a year.
From tranquil farmland settings to mountains, waterfalls and woodlands, to the rich history that the state holds, Pennsylvania is the perfect place to settle in and see just what American is all about.
Major cities in Pennsylvania include Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Allentown, Erie, Reading, and Scranton.
