Discover Pennsylvania's past in historic Philadelphia

Like to see the state's best-known attractions? Choose a Pennsylvania vacation rental in Philadelphia and you'll be at the heart of it all. Visit Independence Hall, a redbrick Georgian building where the Declaration of Independence and Constitution were signed, and be sure to see the iconic Liberty Bell, a symbol of American freedom, which is now situated in the adjacent park. Cast in the 1750s and featuring a distinctive crack, the bell was last sounded in 1846 and is a must-see attraction. For a fun-filled excursion, chocolate lovers can head to the much-loved Hersheypark, which boasts roller coasters, rides for children, a water park and a factory-themed tour ride.

Sizzling summers and ski-worthy winters in Pennsylvania

The state's diverse landscape means weather conditions can vary, depending on where you choose your Pennsylvania vacation rental. For the most part, winters are chilly and summers hot and humid. Pennsylvania's mountainous interior tends to be much colder in the winter, with a greater snowfall that makes it a haven for winter sports fans. Not coming to ski?
