Pennsylvania at a Glance
Philadelphia is a city surrounded by interesting towns, which also are
considered part of the greater Philadelphia area. Despite your budget or
your interest, there is something here for everyone.
Visitors to Philadelphia can now enjoy an array of
lodging to fit all tastes and budgets. The hotel boom has created more
than 4,000 new hotel rooms, offering lodging in every part of the city.
If you can stand the crowds, Philadelphia comes alive
with patriotic frenzy and fireworks each Independence Day.
For the visitor interested in history, Pittsburgh has found a way to
develop into the future without destroying the past, and the same goes
for hotels, too.
Pittsburgh is well into its third redevelopment
renaissance, as home to nine members of the Fortune 500, with two new
sports stadiums, a planned new convention center, the Andy Warhol Museum
and a plethora of other cultural activities.
Pittsburgh Pirates baseball and Kennywood Park (home
of an historic wooden roller coaster) make Spring and Summer a great
time to try Pittsburgh. July and August averages are in the low
seventies making Pittsburgh pleasant during the mid-Summer.

From the historic district, to the Benjamin Franklin
Parkway with its many museums, to the Italian Market area in South
Philadelphia, the 'City
of Neighborhoods' can accommodate almost any interest.
The Philadelphia Cheesesteak: by Jack Curtin.
Those of you who have experienced a 'Philly
Cheesesteak' in some foreign region such as Iowa or Atlanta or
distant California (where the item in question no doubt was something
along the lines of milk-fed, free range beef, goat cheese and avocado in
a tortilla wrap) may be wondering what all the fuss is about.
Hiking The Poconos: by Priscilla Estes.
Sprawling four counties (Carbon, Pike, Monroe and
Wayne), the Pocono Mountains
boast seven state parks and 19 state forests, as well as game lands and
the 70,000-acre Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area.
