gettysburg pennsylvania Pennsylvania is a middle Atlantic state whose size is more than 45,000 square miles.  The coastal plain in the southeast gives way to the Pocono Mountains of the northeast and the Appalachians of the west.  Pennsylvania was an important colony during the War of Independence; the Declaration of Independence was signed here in Philadelphia and the Continental Army encamped at Valley Forge during the difficult winter of 1777 to 1778.  Harrisburg is the capital of Pennsylvania.  Other major cities include Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and Scranton.

Harrisburg is located in south-central Pennsylvania along the Susquehanna River.  In addition to state government, its economy is bolstered by health and service-related industries and a growing tech field.  National firms headquartered in the Harrisburg region include IBM, Hershey Foods, and Rite Aid Corporation.  Downsides include a lack of entertainment and cultural amenities, but Harrisburg has a low cost of living and is located strategically along key transportation routes within the eastern U.S., with excellent roads and rail transportation.

Philadelphia lies along the Delaware River at the New Jersey border in extreme southeastern Pennsylvania.  It is known as the "City of Brotherly Love" and is the seventh-largest metropolitan area in the USA.  Philadelphia served as the first capital of the United States, and contains many museums and historical points of interest in celebration of this fact.  It functions as an important port and manufacturing center, complete with big city amenities.  Philadelphia is home to the University of Pennsylvania and Drexel University, as well as an impressive arts and culture scene.  Philadelphia is made up of many neighborhoods of varying socioeconomic status, and like many large cities, has its share of crime and urban decay.

Pittsburgh is located in west-central Pennsylvania and has a history rooted in the steel-making industry.  It currently operates as a base for headquarters of various domestic and foreign companies including PNC Bank, Bayer North America, GlaxoSmithKline, American Eagle Outfitters, and General Nutrition Centers.  Revitalization has improved once-gritty neighborhoods and created a lively arts and culture scene.  Pittsburgh is also a city of neighborhoods with much ethnic diversity.  The climate tends to be cloudy and rainy, and commute times are longer than the average, but cost of living is low.

In northeastern Pennsylvania, the small city of Scranton was originally a mining, manufacturing, and railroad center.  It has long suffered from decline, but modest urban renewal and industrial development has helped improve the downtown area.  Several local museums and proximity to the Pocono Mountains give the area some interest.  Scranton is relatively isolated from other cities and lacks a strong art and culture scene, but cost of living remains low.
