Benefits of Living in Pennsylvania

Wherever you move, Pennsylvania offers beautiful cities and a high quality of life. Here are just a few of the things you can experience once you move.


A Football Rivalry Within State Borders

People in Pennsylvania love their sports, and nothing breeds true die-hard fans more than a good rivalry. Most sports fans in other places in the US hold contempt for a neighboring state’s team or resort to hating on the Dallas Cowboys. But in Pennsylvania, the enmity exists within the state’s own borders. Both the Philadelphia Eagles and the Pittsburgh Steelers are professional NFL teams in the state, and both teams have a band of loyal fans following their every move.

The Eagles have some of the most intense fans in the nation, with a disreputable streak for rowdiness and destructiveness. However, the Steelers have had more success with six Super Bowl wins, tying them with the Patriots for the most Super Bowl titles in the NFL (and giving them five more wins than the Eagles). Whether you decide to join in on the fun and pick or side, continue a life of ambivalence toward football, or root for a completely different team, prepare for the passionate debates ahead.


Many Historical Landmarks and Firsts

Pennsylvania is one of the most historical states in the nation, and Philadelphia even used to be the capital of the United States until the year 1800. This city is also where many of the most significant American foundational documents were written, including the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Articles of Confederation. Some of the most monumental landmarks you can see in the state include the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, the Gettysburg National Military Park, and Valley Forge National Historical Park.

Pennsylvania is also known for being a place of many firsts for the United States. While the full list includes well over 50 significant firsts, a few of the most interesting include the first hospital in America, the first abolition law against slavery, the first covered bridge, the first zoo, and the first World Series game.


A Thriving Economy and Affordable Cost of Living

Pennsylvania offers the best of both worlds with both a low cost of living and plenty of employment opportunities. The median cost of a house in the state is $180,200, and the median household income is $61,744. The cost of living index is 92.5, which means Pennsylvania is more affordable than most other states.

The state’s job market is also thriving with many Fortune 500 companies employing locals in the area. While history is still important to Pennsylvanians, the state has been generally open to change and innovation, allowing them to lead the way in technology. Historically, the unemployment rate in Pennsylvania has been very low, although the COVID-19 pandemic caused a spike in unemployment in 2020.


A Strong Emphasis on Education

Coming from New Jersey, which is ranked top in the nation for the quality of its public schools, education is likely important to you. Fortunately, there are many great schools to choose from in Pennsylvania. Overall, the state is well educated. 90.5% of adults over the age of 25 have a high school degree, and 31.4% have a bachelor’s degree.

For public schools in Pennsylvania, Radnor Township School District, Tredyffrin-Easttown School District, and Fox Chapel Area School District were ranked top in the state. The best colleges are the University of Pennsylvania, Carnegie Mellon University, Haverford College, Swarthmore College, and Leigh University. Depending on the area you move to and your field of study, there are many other top-rated colleges in the area the pursue an education in.


The Home of Hershey Chocolate

If you have the chance to visit (or possibly move to) Hershey, Pennsylvania, you certainly won’t go hungry. This city is endearingly referred to as “The Sweetest Place on Earth” as it is home to the Hershey Chocolate Company. Here is where you can enter the Hershey’s Chocolate World and spend an entire day dedicated to learning about and, of course, eating your preferred share of chocolate.

Inside you’ll find several fun activities to enjoy, like creating your own candy bar, watching a 4D movie all about chocolate, and relaxing during the automated chocolate tour (which comes with a free sample). You can also go on a trolley ride around the city of Hershey where you can learn all about the city and its heartwarming history.


A Wide Range of Outdoor Activities

Pennsylvanians get to enjoy all four seasons, with warm, humid summers and cold summers with a fair share of snow. There are many outdoor activities to enjoy all year long. When the weather is warm you can enjoy the many hiking, biking, and horseback riding trails in the area, fishing and hunting excursions, and camping or spending the night in a cabin or yurt. Skiing is a popular sport in the winter.

An affordable, fun-packed state, Pennsylvania is a great home for almost every type of person, including families with young children and retirees.
