A professional writer for more than two decades, Beth has lived in nearly a dozen states – from Missouri and Virginia to Connecticut and Vermont – and Toronto, Canada. In addition to traveling extensively in the U.S. and the U.K., she has a BA in Journalism from Point Park University (PA), a MA in Holocaust & Genocide Studies from Stockton University (NJ), and a Master of Professional Writing from Chatham University (PA). A writer and editor for Only In Your State since 2016, Beth grew up in and currently lives outside of Pittsburgh and when she’s not writing or hanging out with her bunnies, budgies, and chinchilla, she and her daughter are out chasing waterfalls.
Living in PA means we’re around history all of the time, whether we realize it or not. While we can certainly discover a wealth of history in the museums that dot the state, sometimes we want to get outdoors, explore, and get a taste of history that way. That’s just what you’ll do on the Heritage Rail Trail in Pennsylvania that meanders 27 miles through history.
