Pennsylvania might not seem like an obvious choice for a vacation, but there is plenty to do and see. It isn’t the best choice if you are wanting a relaxed or sunbathing vacation. But it works well for those of you that are looking for a vacation that is full of sights, history and activities. You could visit Pittsburgh for things like the Carnegie Museums and the Andy Warhol Museums. For younger families the zoo and botanical gardens are a must see, right? If you wanted to head out further east, you could visit Philadelphia. Then you can more historic sites like the Liberty Bell and independence Hall. There are lots of civil war artifacts and battlefields in Gettysburg too. If you decided to head out to the country, then there are more active things that you could do. Outdoor pursuits like rock climbing, campfire cooking and archery would be available at outdoor centres in the area. The Blackrock Retreat is an example of a christian retreat center in that area.
Florida, at the other end of the country, is a great place for a staycation. The beaches are amazing and quite often will be quieter than their Californian counterparts. You have plenty of theme parks to choose from, especially if you choose the Orlando area. If you would like a little spot that is less touristy, then Tampa or Miami are great spots to choose. Still filled with lots of fun things for families, though.
