Pennsylvania Is Number One At All Of These Things

We’re Number One! We’re Number One? We’re Number One…

Pennsylvania is famous for its “firsts” (like the first US Capitol: Philadelphia), inventions (everything Benjamin Franklin did), and winning spirit. We rarely do anything “average,” but being Number One is not always an honor.

We went looking for all of the things Pennsylvania tops the list for. For the most part we’re awesome, and when we aren’t Number One, you better believe we are Top Three. Unfortunately, some of these lists are ones we would rather not be on…

We came across “bests” and “worsts,” “firsts” and “lasts,” “mosts” and “leasts,” and built this list to include a little bit of each, because we want to try to be Number One in honesty.

So there you have it; a list of all the things Pennsylvania is Number One at, for better or worse. Perhaps by raising attention to some of our Number One problems, we can get ourselves off of them before any new lists come out!

What “Number One” thing in Pennsylvania are you the most proud of? Are there any “Number Ones” we left off of this list? Tell us about it in the comments!
