You’re A True Pennsylvanian If You Can Pronounce These 10 Words The Right Way

Every state has its own lingo, but none is as interesting as Pennsylvania. Ask someone if they’re going to outten the lights before they go dahntahn, and they might look at you as if you’ve sprouted a second head. We can usually spot if the other person is a tried and true Pennsylvanian by the way they speak and, in particular, how they pronounce some of those hard-to-pronounce Pennsylvania destinations.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date.
