Oh, the places you'll go (in PA)!


I’m the type of person to visit places in my own state -- and usually it’s the other way around.

Most people my age would prefer to visit New York, Florida, or even Maryland, but why not explore more in your birthplace?

Our first stop is Philadelphia; the homeland to the Declaration of Independence and Independence Hall. The Independence Hall hosts a tour from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm where visitors can see where the Declaration of Independence and the U.S Constitution were signed.

Most importantly, don’t forget to wear your mask.

Now, let’s get to the fun stuff.

Ricketts Glen State Park showcases large, beautiful waterfalls. Overall, the scenery is breathtaking, but the hike to the falls is rather long.

The third stop is Hersheypark, the famous park founded in 1906 by Milton S. Hershey. Hershey Park covers 110 acres of land and is filled with 70 rides and attractions. You know when you're in the right place is when you see white smoke exiting from these two big steam stacks from the Hershey factory.

Lastly, I recommend visiting Longwood Gardens, located in Kennett Square, PA.

Longwood Gardens is known for their extravagant flora and fauna, as well as fountain performances. Guests need to purchase tickets online to visit, as per the facility’s requirements.

Nonetheless, photographers often go to this garden to take pictures of the scenery or for photoshoots with models and couples. This place is a sight to see.

To me, these places seem like a great way to hang out with family or friends. No one lives forever, but making heartfelt memories last for an eternity.
