Pennsylvania is a state located in the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States. Officially a commonwealth – one of four U.S. states to be considered one – Pennsylvania is home to a population of over 12.87 million residents, making it the 6th-largest state by total population. Pennsylvania was one of the founding colonies of the United States and was first settled well back in the mid-17th century when colonization was at its peak. At over 46,055 square miles, Pennsylvania also ranks as the 33rd-largest state by total area, and has a population density of 284 residents per square mile, which ranks 9th among the 50 states.

By far the largest city in the state of Pennsylvania is Philadelphia, which is also the fifth-largest city in the United States by population and anchors the sixth-largest metropolitan area in the country. Philadelphia is the only consolidated city-county in the state of Pennsylvania and is currently home to over 1.56 million residents in the city proper and 6.1 million in the surrounding metro area. Philadelphia was founded in 1682 to serve as the capital of the Pennsylvania Colony and quickly grew into a regional powerhouse; by the outbreak of the American Revolution, less than a century later, Philadelphia had become a vital meeting place for the Founding Fathers and played a crucial role during the formation of the United States.

Getting around Pennsylvania is usually best achieved via the Interstate Highway System and the state has a plethora of them to choose fro44 and out of the eastern regions, which also tends to see less snow and ice during the winter months. Auto transporters prefer to run routes into and out of major metro areas that don’t see a lot of severe weather, and that’s definitely something you see in Pennsylvania, particularly Philadelphia which is one of the most popular auto transport locations in the entire country.
