16 Photos That Prove Rural Pennsylvania Is The Best Place To Live
Are you a city mouse or a country mouse? If you’ve spent time living in the Pennsylvania countryside, you might be hard-pressed to find reasons to leave. Sure, it can get a bit slow sometimes; but the gorgeous landscape around you would be difficult to part with. Here are some of the top reasons why rural PA is the place to be…
1. It's not easy to find barns as beautiful as the ones in Pennsylvania, often covered in traditional hex symbols like this one in Bucks County.
2. There's one word for everything in rural PA: quaint. Check out this peaceful roadside church and cemetery in Berks County.
3. The sky is gigantic, beautiful, and dramatic out in the country.
4. Heaven feels closer to earth (especially when the sun shines through the clouds in such a heavenly way...). This photograph was taken in Lancaster.
5. Where else can you see Amish buggies on the street? (Well, maybe Ohio. But that's beside the point.)
6. Horse and buggy crossing!
7. Pennsylvania has more covered bridges than any other state. Here is the Glessner Covered Bridge, which was first built in 1880 (then rebuilt in 1998).
8. Road trips through the Appalachian Mountains are dramatic and beautiful. Pictured is US Route 6 going through Bradford County.
9. What's more unique and quirky than barns with old school advertisements adorning their walls?
10. When you live in rural Pennsylvania, it's tough to drive more than a couple miles without seeing cows, horses, or another adorable farm animals.
11. Check out that incredible landscape. That's a view that you wouldn't trade for the world.
12. Fields on fields on fields on fields. It's nice to have space to reflect or relax.
13. Winding roads, stunning foliage, a rustic fence. Everything is a little bit more charming in the countryside.
14. County fairs can be blast with friends or family; pictured here is the Kutztown County Fair.
15. When you're living in a place that's not overrun with people, the possibility of exploration is always at your fingertips. You can discover treasures like this abandoned car, which was photographed near the Delaware River Gap.
16. Sunrises and sunsets take on a special, striking atmosphere when you see them in a pastoral setting.
