People are typically proud of their home states. We Pennsylvanians have plenty about which to be proud and to love. The one thing that would make Pennsylvania even better? Having all of our friends living in the state with us. Here are 11 failproof ways to convince all of your friends to move to Pennsylvania.
1. Cook ‘em dinner.
Mmm…mmm…cook your friends a delicious meal with all of the Pennsylvania favorites – a hearty cheesesteak sandwich, handmade pierogis, scrapple, pork and sauerkraut, or a hoagie.
2. Or, take ‘em out for a meal.
How can anyone resist living in a state where there are so many places to dine out? Enjoy a homecooked meal at an old-fashioned diner. Indulge in traditional Amish fare in Lancaster. Or, turn back the clock with a visit to one of the state’s historic restaurants like King George II Inn.
3. Don’t forget dessert.
Pennsylvania hasn’t earned the title of Snack Capital of the World for nothing. We’ve got the best snacks and the best desserts. Have a scoop of Hershey’s ice cream dipped in Hershey’s chocolate. Indulge in a TastyKake. Or, have some Utz or Herr’s potato chips. And that is just the delicious beginning.
4. Love sports? PA’s the place to be.
Sports fans need only know one thing about PA. We’ve got the best sports fans in the United States. Nay, the world. And, really, there’s little wonder why. Just look at the Steelers and the Eagles. The Pens and the Flyers. The Phillies and the Pirates.
