Renting an Alamo hire car to pick up in Pennsylvania is hassle-free, and you have the opportunity to select a model to meet you and your family or party's needs. It is the most convenient and economical way to travel while you are enjoying your holiday.
Pennsylvania is a state steeped in America's history, and it's also an established holiday area, with spas, hotels, theme parks, mountains and hundreds of square miles of countryside, so it's well set up to provide a great time for you and your family, no matter who likes to do what.
Pennsylvania's two biggest cities are Pittsburgh and Philadelphia, and these are situated at either end of the state. They've got a lot of things to offer; both very different from each other, so it's well worth hiring a car, and starting off in one city, wending your way eventually to the other. Not so much a road trip as an exploration adventure that will show you everything the state has to offer, on your own time and at your own pace. Picturesque scenery abounds along every road in the state, so you won't regret the choice.
Pennsylvania is known as the Keystone State; at the centre of the United States' history from the very first day. You can find out everything about that at Philadelphia's downtown Independence Historical National Park, and if history really is your thing, a visit to the infamous Gettysburg battlefield could be right up your street. The state is also home to the famed Amish community in Lancaster County, a unique glance into a culture that is quite different from any other in America.
For a holiday with a more 'active' slant, the Pennsylvania wilds can give you and your family loads of rip-roaring outdoors fun, and the Poconos Mountains are monumental landmarks that are perfect for hiking and great photographs.
Car hire really is the best way to go in Pennsylvania, particularly if there are more than two in your party. From taking a trip "for the kids" to one of the many amusement parks - Hersheypark, Great Wolf Lodge in the Poconos for older kids, and if you've got toddlers, Sesame Place, which is just 30 minute drive from Philly - to a skiing or sailing trip in the Poconos (where you can end each day in a heart-shaped bathtub), it's easier to absorb everything around you if you're driving through it.
The busiest airports in the state are Philadelphia International Airport and Pittsburgh International Airport, and these serve the two biggest cities in the region, however you may find that you arrive at one of the slightly smaller airports, such as Harrisburg International Airport, Erie International Airport, or even the tiny State College Airport, which is owned by the Pennsylvania State University. Luckily, you can hire a car at any of these; in fact, if you arrive in Philadelphia via railroad, you can even hire one at Philadelphia 30th Street station.
