Pennsylvania Ranked A Top State To Visit This Summer
A new poll is out from gambling.com ranking the best states to visit this summer, and Pennsylvania is ranked in the top 10. When states get ranked for things Pennsylvania usually gets shafted. It seems that things are changing for PA in the summer of 2023. The usual summer vacation spots, New Jersey, North Carolina, Maryland, South Carolina, Florida, are all in the top 20, but seeing Pennsylvania ranked above some of them is surprising.
Pennsylvania does have a lot going for it in terms of things to do in the summer, so it makes sense that it is ranked in the top 10. The landscape is gorgeous throughout the state. It has great spots to hike camp, fish, hunt. Rolling hills with small towns, lakes, trails and some great breweries to try. If you are a history buff then Old City Philadelphia is the place for you. Check out this article about a Philadelphia landmark that is a must see in the US.
The list was created by giving each state a score in 5 categories that were then combined to give a full “Summer Vacation Score”. The categories were: room availability score, room affordability score, crime rate score, sunlight score and attractions score. The types of categories they are using to rank these states might be skewing this list a bit. I say that because Iowa, Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky are not high on my list of summer vacation spots. The category scores are bringing these states into the top 10 when in actuality you don’t have any plans on visiting them.
