Jim Cheney, writer of UncoveringPA.com

Hello, I’m Jim Cheney, a traveler, writer, photographer, and resident of Pennsylvania.

As a traveler, I’ve climbed over ancient temples in Cambodia, ridden the rails through Siberia, explored ancient man-made caves in Turkey, trekked to hidden mountain temples in South Korea, and so much more. These experiences have shaped me and helped me to understand the needs to travelers around the world.

But now that I’m a resident of Pennsylvania, I started UncoveringPA.com in August 2013 to help uncover the best things to see and do in Pennsylvania. My goal is to provide you with honest information about the best place to visit and those that you might want to skip.

Did you know that the local visitor bureaus can’t tell you what they really think of a place? Did you know that some reviewers on TripAdvisor.com have a hidden agenda or just get upset really easily?

Because of these factors, it’s hard to find honest travel advice to help you plan your trip.

That’s where UncoveringPA.com can help you!

My goal with this site is to bridge the gap between what the visitor’s bureau’s can tell you, and what you can find on sites like TripAdvisor.com.

From Philadelphia to Pittsburgh and from Harrisburg to Erie, I plan on leaving no stone unturned in my quest to uncover the best things to do in Pennsylvania.

I hope that you’ll follow along on my adventures. Whether you are a first-time visitor or frequent traveler in Pennsylvania, I hope that you’ll find something to inspire your next trip to this great state.
