Philadelphia hosts several historic locations and objects in American history such as Independence National Historic Park, which holds Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell.
Twice a year, in Long Pond, Pennsylvania, NASCAR comes to town. The remote town overflows during race weekend.
Hiking and Camping
Pennsylvania contains 117 state parks and a half dozen national recreation areas, including the Delaware Recreation Area. At the Delaware Recreation Area, the Dingmans Campground connects with the McDade Trail, allowing easy access for hikers from the campground.
As the chocolate capital of Pennsylvania (maybe the world), Hershey contains many attractions dedicated to the chocolate such as Hershey Park, Hershey’s Chocolate World and the Spa at Hotel Hershey.
In 1863, both the Battle of Gettysburg and the Gettysburg Address occurred in Gettysburg, forever changing it. In commemoration, the Gettysburg National Military Park preserves those pivotal moments in history.
