One of the original 13 Colonies, the “Keystone State” contains a rich cross-section of American history, from the colonial heritage of the nation's former capital, Philadelphia, to Gettysburg and other Civil War battlefields to the original oil boomtown of Titusville.

Pittsburgh, in the southwest, has grown beyond its steel and coal industrial grittiness to include a vibrant arts and culture scene. The Andy Warhol Museum, one of four Carnegie Museums in the city, is a hub of contemporary art and popular culture.
