Pennsylvania

Understand

The State of Pennsylvania is a geographically diverse state with a great lake on one shore and a major seaport on the other. The climate of Pennsylvania is pleasant, with cold winters, mild to hot summers, and gorgeous springtimes.

Pennsylvania hosts a number of vital cities, from Pittsburgh to Philadelphia. The city of Philadelphia houses the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, two major national historical landmarks. The interior of the state has a number of subcultures worth exploring, including the famous Amish countryside, a religious community based in Christian Anabaptist dogma.

Pennsylvania is also host to a diverse group of people, with ethnic enclaves of black, Hispanic, and Southeast Asian populations in its major cities.

Pennsylvania

Talk

Most Pennsylvanians speak American English, although many subtle regional accents and 'dialects' do exist. There are large Latino, Spanish-speaking populations in Reading, Allentown, Pittsburg, and Philadelphia, and Philadelphia and Pittsburg have their share of Asian, European, and other languages. There will be no problem communicating with people who live in Pennsylvania, except, of course, if they resort to the famous Pennsylvania Dutch "Pennsilfaanisch Deitsch" dialect of German. Although widescale non-Amish use of the language faded circa 1950, there are pockets of young people who are learning the language as a way to preserve their heratige.

Get in

Pennsylvania

By car

Interstate highways lead most traffic into the state.

  • I-70, traffic from the midwest
  • I-78, traffic from New Jersey and New York City
  • I-80, traffic from New York
  • I-79, traffic from the Great Lakes region and West Virginia through Pittsburgh
  • I-83, traffic from Baltimore
  • I-76, the Pennsylvania Turnpike
  • I-95, traffic from Washington DC and New York
  • I-90, traffic from Cleveland to Buffalo through Erie

There also exist a huge network or backroads, state highways, and private roads that stretch along it's mostly forested and farmed rural areas. Speed limit signs are almost exclusively posted in Imperial units. To out-of-staters many of the roads in the mountainous areas of the state are treacherously winding, curving, and narrow; however, this barely slows down many of the native drivers in this area.

As conditions go, there's an old joke that Pennsylvania roads have two seasons; winter and construction. This is true for much of the state, where blizzards, ice, and excesive snowfall can 'snow in' many rural inhabitants and render many backroads impassable. It's advisable to use extreme caution after even a relatively light snow, and out of state drivers should stick to more well-travelled state roads and interstates.
