Pennsylvania is perhaps one of the most amazing states in the entire Union. Historically it is perhaps one of the most important states aside from maybe Boston, for several reasons: first, it housed the nation’s first capital; second, the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were both drafted and signed in the city of Philadelphia, and third, it played a major role in shaping the nation as we know it today.
The state of Pennsylvania is actually a commonwealth, not a state – its official title is the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and it is also known as the Quaker State – and not because of the motor oil. Pennsylvania was first founded by a religious sect known as the Quakers, which were a strict Christian sect looking for religious tolerance away from the persecutions of England in the early 17th century. It was originally known as Quaker Province, though as more settlers who were not Quakers began settling in the colony, it was renamed to Pennsylvania after William Penn, the first governor as well as founder of the colony.
Philadelphia is the largest city in the state and is also the home of the oldest zoo in the entire United States. The state of Pennsylvania is also the home of 121 state parks, all of which are free to enter – which makes Pennsylvania the only state in the Union to offer free admission to its state parks.
If you’re a sports fan, you’ll love Pennsylvania. Baseball, basketball, football, hockey – you name it, Pennsylvania has a sport for it more than likely. The Philadelphia Phillies and the Pittsburgh Pirates, from Major League Baseball, play in the state; the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Philadelphia Eagles both play in the National Football League, and the Philadelphia 76ers play in the National Basketball Association. In addition to those three sports, the Philadelphia Flyers and the Pittsburgh Penguins play in the state for the National Hockey League and even Arena Football has a team there – the Philadelphia Soul. All major sports teams in the state have won at least one championship in their respective leagues.
