Welcome to Pennsylvania!
We were born and raised in southwestern Pennsylvania in a small town known for being the home of Rolling Rock, Arnold Palmer, and Mister Rogers! Any guesses? Correct Answer: Latrobe!
Since we're from Pennsylvania, we have spent LOTS of time exploring what PA has to offer. As travel bloggers, it's easy to forget that people might be visiting your hometown region from out of town, out of state, or even from out of the country! So we've dedicated a significant portion of our blog to Pennsylvania content. Why not write about the places we know best? With a local perspective, we're here to provide you with everything you need to know about our home state, particularly the southwestern region! In our guides, we include the top things to do in cities and towns across Pennsylvania.
When people think of PA, most people either think of Pittsburgh or Philadelphia and then everything in between is mountains and Amish Country. Pennsylvania is a really unique state in the sense that you can experience so much that you can't find in other states. We experience all 4 seasons, so we have things to do during every season. Pennsylvania is one of the oldest states, so it's rich in American history with historic sites, museums, and national parks. We have a beach in Erie. And PA is quite accessible through driving, the Amtrak passenger train system, and multiple major airports in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia. So where in Pennsylvania would you like to go?!
