Pennsylvania is a State of amazing history within the American context. Art, politics, religion, economics, culture - it is all here and it has all happened for hundreds of years now. The stories contained within the many sites scattered throughout the State make your visit worthwhile by themselves. For those non-historically inclined, there are plenty of other things to keep you occupied. I give you a smattering of tips scattered throughout the State with the main exception of the far eastern area of the State where I have only spent a limited amount of time - unless you want to count the hours spent waiting at the Philadelphia airport as US Air cancels another one of my flights.

    Lots of interesting stories about these many places in Pennsylvania. I never knew about the Horseshoe Curve that was built by the Pennsylvania Railroad in 1854. Interesting to compare with the one in Semmering, Austria. (I remember reading your page.)

    As usual, you have an excellent page here. FWIW, I'm familiar with the "canyon" the Pirates are experiencing; the Red Sox had one 86 years wide. Right now, they are fighting to win their third World Series title in 5 years on the far end of it... 8)
