It’s Fair To Say That Pennsylvanians Do These 11 Things Better Than Anyone Else
We can all probably agree that Pennsylvania’s a pretty amazing place, and a big reason for that is the people. Pennsylvanians are one-of-a-kind – tough, caring, friendly, the kind of people we’re happy to call our neighbors. Our uniqueness, in fact, is evident in these 10 things Pennsylvanians do better than anyone else.
1. We’re all about traditions.
Whether it’s state, city, or family, we embrace our traditions. We kick off the New Year with a traditional meal of pork and sauerkraut; gather around cookie tables at weddings, and shop at mud sales.
2. We know good food (and how to make it) when we taste it.
Life in Pennsylvania is oh-so-good and oh-so-delicious. We know good food and how to make it – from cheesesteak sandwiches and pierogis to shoofly pie and scrapple. (Okay, scrapple’s a hit or a miss. You either love it or you don’t.)
3. You won’t find better snacks anywhere.
We live in the Snack Capital of the World, so it’s fair to say that we know snacks better than anyone. From Utz to Herr’s some of the best snacks in the world are produced right here in Pennsylvania.
4. We love a good rivalry.
Steelers vs. Eagles. Phillies vs. Pirates. Wawa vs. Sheetz. We’ve got some fierce rivalries going on. No matter what side you’re on, you’ve got to admit that nothing beats a good rivalry (especially when you’re on the winning side).
5. We adapt to change pretty darn well.
One look at the moodiness of our weather, and it’s evident that we know how to deal with change. After all, when you live in a state that experiences all four seasons in a single day…we can pretty much handle anything.
6. We’ll make you feel right at home.
We love our home state, and we want you to love it, too. So come on in; have a bite to eat, and stay awhile. We’re happy to have you.
7. We won’t back down from a challenge.
Pennsylvanians are resilient and will take on any challenge that comes our way - individually and as a state.
8. We embrace the unique.
You probably won’t find a more unique place than Pennsylvania. After all, where else can you find a Space Acorn, a huge shoe that doubles as an ice cream shop (Haines Shoe House), and a larger-than-life coffee pot (Bedford Coffee Pot)? We’re all about uniqueness in Pennsylvania.
9. We’re adventurous.
Pennsylvania’s brimming with fun things to do for adventurers of all ages. From ziplining to hiking to waterfalls, we’re always up for a new adventure.
10. We’ve got your back.
Life can get pretty rough. We’ve all been there, and that’s just one of the reasons we’ve got your back. Pennsylvanians are some of the most compassionate Americans and always come through when tragedy strikes or when our neighbors need a helping hand.
