"You've Got a Friend in Pennsylvania" Top 5 Page for this destination Pennsylvania by Ewingjr98

I was born and raised in Pennsylvania.

This page will only cover the small places I have visited or places where I haven't spent much time including Marienville, Allentown, the Allegheny National Forest, and Volant. I have dedicated pages for Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Harrisburg, Cook Forest State Park, Lucinda, and Clarion.

In the 1980s the state's slogan was "You've Got a Friend in Pennsylvania." Despite the obvious flaw in that not everyone has a friend in PA--because we are friendly, but not that friendly--this is also terrible English. Was this slogan directed toward travelers from England? Why not use proper American English with "You Have a Friend in Pennsylvania?"

    Beautiful country. The fall leaves are so colorful. That is a wonderful event about the bears. The beautiful historic buildings are my cup of tea. Thanks for sharing!

    Nice job. Any congressman who served in the 107th Congress and their staff should be thankful to these people or many of them would be 7 years dead. The Capitol was likely the target of the terrorists.
