PENNSYLVANIA

Pennsylvania is one of the original 13 colonies and is full of historic sites from the early days of the United States.  Pennsylvania is home to the first hospital in the United States that was cofounded by 1751 by Dr. Benjamin Franklin.  Philadelphia and Pittsburgh are just two of the many great cities in Pennsylvania that have fantastic eateries, wonderful attractions and entertainment options.  Hikers will want to spend some time on the legendary Appalachian Trail that runs diagonally across the state.

There is so much to see and do in Philadelphia that it would be impossible to mention it all here.  Fans of American history won't want to miss the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall and other sites in the Independence National Historical Park.  Philly has great restaurants and one of the most special is Moshulu, which was award the four diamonds by AAA and set inside a tall-ship that was launched in 1904 and is now permanently docked at Penn's Landing.  For a historical meal, step back in time at the City Tavern Restaurant and have traditional 18th century colonial meal.  For lighter fare, registered nurses go to Campo's for an authentic Philly cheesesteak sandwich.

Sports fans will have a lot to cheer about in Pennsylvania with great teams like Steelers, the Eagles, the 76ers, the Phillies and the Pirates.  If you somehow run out of things to do in Pennsylvania, remember that Philadelphia is less than two hours from New York City, less than three hours from Washington, DC and most places in Pennsylvania are within a five-hour drive of more than a quarter of the country‚Äôs population.  Philly is a great homebase for registered nurses!
