If you want to experience First Colonial life then Pennsylvania is certainly the state to visit. Not only is it the state where the Declaration of Independence was signed it is also where many historical battles were fought. It is fast becoming more than the historic country and industrial area of Pittsburgh with such attractions as zip lining as part of the adventures.

Philadelphia may be a city of struggles, excitement, and creativity, but the Poconos and northeast section of Pennsylvania is filled with zip line tours, hiking, skiing, and white water rafting. Even the Delaware River lends itself to excitement with the babbling waters around Lancaster County.

Cocktail parties, luxury hotels, and historic buildings are just a part of the enjoyments you can find in this beautiful state. The Poconos offer untouched forest land where you can ski, hike, and zip through the trees with ease. The parks are surrounded by summer getaways from luxury home rentals to top resorts with bed and breakfast feel.

In the heart of Pennsylvania there is also the Dutch countryside with the Amish communities. If that is not of interest there is always Hershey Park and the Hershey factory to tour after a morning of zip lining.
