Coming to us for Pennsylvania travel advice? You’ve come to the right place! We’ve both been lifelong residents of the state of Pennsylvania, and we’ve extensively explored everything from the bustling big cities and the beautiful small towns across the state.

Pennsylvania also has a great network of state parks that are all free to visit! There are 124 of them spread across the state, and the bureau manages 300,000 acres of land for everyone, both residents and visitors, to enjoy. Our favorites include Ohiopyle, Trough Creek, McConnells Mill, and of course Ricketts Glen State Parks.

Whether you’re looking to try a new city restaurant or get off the grid on one of Pennsylvania’s fantastic backpacking trails, we have some great advice to share with you. Check out some of our best tips and tricks!
