I'm from UK and thinking of visiting Pennsylvania...what's it like? What's the culture like, weather
You will get all four seasons here, and they can be moderately hot or quite cold, depending on the time of the year. Beautiful rolling hills in central to south PA include the foothills of the Allegheny mountains. From the good stuff in a big city like Philly, to small towns in central PA like Hollidaysburg, to the incredible fresh water beaches of Presque Isle on Lake Erie, the environments and sights are well worth your visit here. You can find pockets of Amish and Mennonite culture in deep valleys; purchase some of their fresh picked produce that will make your mouth water! Catch a ball game: great minor league baseball teams, Major league teams of the Pirates and Phillies, and football teams Eagles and Steelers. And ethnic foods of all kinds...and the State parks and the Allegheny National Forest with miles and miles of hiking trails....is that enough to convince you?
It all depends on what you like. The people of eastern Pennsylvania are the rudest Americans on the entire continent. The countryside of western Pennsylvania is more interesting and less depressing than the cities where the culture basically consists of poor black Americans. If you're going to Pennsylvania to find a job, it's a good place to look.
Krillco gave a very detailed answer and I think it was great. Having lived in Pennsylvania all my life, I would say that, just as with anywhere else, it has it's good side and it's bad side. And there's a lot of variety in cultures in the cities. You might be in one area which is mostly Italian and walk a few blocks and be surrounded by Asian culture. As with the country as a whole, Pennsylvania can be viewed as a "melting pot" where all cultures mix and mingle. But I think most of the people are proud of their cultural heritage so they will tend to settle in areas of like backgrounds.
