Throw your bags in the car and be prepared to hit the open road, we’re headed for Pennsylvania! The STREETWISE® Pennsylvania Map, a complete map of the state, will guide you as you trace American history and enjoy the rolling scenery of this picturesque state.

One of Pennsylvania's main attractions is Philadelphia. An expanded area map facilitates any travel in and out of the city to visit Independence National Park, as well as the famous Reading Market and the University of Pennsylvania. Greater Pittsburgh, the hub for three rivers: the Monongahela, Allegheny and Ohio, is the home of the Andy Warhol Museum, one of four Carnegie museums. Visitors interested in the Pennsylvania Dutch Country head for Lancaster County. The area wasn’t inhabited by the Dutch, but by German immigrants fleeing religious persecution in the 18th century. Amish and Mennonite communities still exist in the area as well. The town of Gettysburg, famous for the Battle of Gettysburg, is where you’ll find numerous museums and monuments, tributes to the battle that changed the course of U.S. history. Of course, Valley Forge is another significant milestone in American history and worthy of a visit.

If you love birding, biking, or fishing, head to the Pennsylvania Wilds. See some of the most spectacular scenery in the east. River raft down the Susquehanna River, bike the Allegheny National Forest which spans across four counties and features many outdoor activities. Or head to the Pocono Mountains located in northeastern Pennsylvania, for winter skiing and summer hiking. Whatever your tastes, Pennsylvania has it within its borders.

Complete with an index of cities, towns and villages. Major Highways, state and county roads are all indicates as well as state parks, recreation areas and points of interest. Inset maps highlight the major cities of Pennsylvania.

About the Author: STREETWISE® is the first map to be designed with modern graphics and is the originator of the laminated, accordion-fold map format. We’ve set the standard that every map company has imitated but never duplicated. Our mission is to make you feel comfortable, to make you feel safe in a place where you’ve never been before and to enable you to experience a familiar place more fully.

The company was founded in 1984 by Michael Brown, who had been in international publishing for many years, setting up subsidiaries for textbook publishers. In the 1970’s, Brown traveled extensively throughout Africa, India, the Middle East and Southeast Asia. Brown would take a large paper map, cut out the city center, folded it up and slip it into his pocket, thus preventing him from looking like a tourist in areas where discretion is the better part of travel. This was his tool for surviving.

After many years on the road, Brown settled back in New York and decided to start his own business, based on the adaptations he had made to maps in his travels. His goal was to give someone the ability to navigate easily in unfamiliar terrain.

He started with a new map format: the accordion fold. Such a simple idea, but at the time it was revolutionary. No more struggling to fold an awkward, oversized paper map. This new format would enable the user to blend in like a native, instead of stick out like a tourist. Brown then added lamination to ensure that the map would be a lasting tool.

More important than the format was the design of the map itself. It had to be a map that not only succeeded above and beyond any map he had used, but was esthetically appealing as well. The look of it had to be as striking as the functionality. Color was introduced in a way that was never seen before in a map - vivid purple for water, soothing gray for the background of street grids, gold to highlight elements of the map. Clarity, conciseness and convenience in a very stylish package.

Building the business was a 24 hour job. Brown sold the maps during the day, zipping around Manhattan making deliveries on his Harley Davidson. At night he packed the orders and did the design work. More titles were added, each title requiring months of research and design.

Today, STREETWISE® produces over 130 titles for major destinations, regions and countries throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, Australia, Europe, the United Kingdom and Asia. We have grown from the back of a motorcycle to selling millions of maps around the world.

Yet each title is still painstakingly researched and updated. STREETWISE® is one of the only, if not THE only map company that conducts research by walking or driving an area to ensure accuracy. After all, what good is the map if what you hold in your hands doesn’t match what you see on the street sign? This lengthy fact checking results in superior accuracy; in effect, we’ve done the work, now you have the adventure.

In the end, it’s not about the map, it’s about getting out and finding your own authentic experience wherever you go. It’s about being in a city or a region and discovering things that you never thought you would find. You can do this if you have confidence and you have confidence if you have a great map. STREETWISE® is the great map that you need.
