The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania is home to nearly 13 million residents, making it the 5th most populous state in the U.S. PA offers a very high quality of life. With its diverse array of towns, cities, residents, architecture, cultural attractions, and entertainment, it’s no wonder that so many former New Jersey residents call the Keystone State home.

In 2018, New Jersey became the #1 state to move away from, according to data collected by United Van Lines (67% of moves were outbound versus 33 percent inbound). Why the mass exodus? New Jersey happens to have the highest property taxes in the United States. In the same study, far more younger people moved to Pennsylvania than moved out (41.03% vs. 29.22%). What makes PA such a great option? For one, it’s the perfect place to start a family. Pennsylvania has a bustling economy, excellent school systems, globally recognized universities, and world-class cities. And that’s just the beginning.
