Pennsylvania is a northeastern state and the birthplace of the United States. As one of the original thirteen colonies, its largest city of Philadelphia is the site of the signing of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, and home to the Liberty Bell. Pennsylvania is also home to Amish territory, farmland, forests, and mountains, and its capital city of Harrisburg sits just between the two major cities of Pittsburgh and Philadelphia. Pennsylvania is home to 12.8 million people and a popular tourist destination largely because of Philadelphia's rich American history and many museums and arts centers.
