Happy Day Road Trips

In 2016, the Pennsylvania Tourism Office launched a new slogan and challenge to travelers — “Pennsylvania. Pursue Your Happiness.” This mantra captures the spirit of the Keystone State, echoing the famous call to “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness” from the Declaration of Independence penned in Philadelphia in 1776.

The new slogan says that in Pennsylvania, a vacation or getaway is an active, self-styled adventure — a pursuit. Where should you begin?
