Apartments for Rent | Search By State | Pennsylvania Apartments

Pennsylvania is a state whose residents and cities played a major role in the events leading up to the foundation of the United States. The Declaration of Independence was written there, as well as the Constitution. Its founder, William Penn, was known for his belief in religious freedom and for advocating good relations with the Native Americans, and the state's Quaker heritage can be said to have influenced its reputation for being an egalitarian, welcoming place. The state has a strong agricultural heritage; corn, dairy cows, and alfalfa can be seen making up patchwork quilts of fields. In some areas, such as Lancaster County, Mennonite and Amish sects work the land without the help of machines. In another corner of the state, Pittsburgh, it's all about machinery and steel: the city was at one time one of the largest steel producers, and is home to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Today Pittsburgh is the site of an emerging tech industry related especially to robotics.
Philadelphia is another of the state's biggest cities and a good place to look for apartments if you value being in an area close to a number of top-tier colleges. Swarthmore, Haverford, and Bryn Mawr college are all near the Main Line section outside Philadelphia, while the University of Pennsylvania, Dickinson College, and Drexel University are a few other of the state's leaders; Pennsylvania has at least double the national average of institutions accepting financial aid from the government, and also has double the state average of both private and public universities. As such, finding apartments to rent near a good college isn't hard to do in Pennsylvania. The state is well-known as the place where Benjamin Franklin settled as a print-setter, then served as Postmaster and as a member of the Continental Congress while also writing the popular and influential "Poor Richard's Almanac." You can also find apartments for rent in Allentown, one of the biggest cities, or in Harrisburg, the capital of the state, which has a population of over 12 million.
