As beautiful as the Keystone State is, most Pennsylvania politicos spend their summer vacation in another state...preferably one with sand and an ocean. 

And Tom Ridge wasn't the first Pennsylvanian to figure that out when he campaigned for Governor in 1994 by hanging a Ridge/Schweiker banner from a plane flying along the Jersey shore.

So with the state Capitol empty, the gubernatorial campaigns making the rounds at county fairs and most staffers on a golf course, we decided to turn our attention outside the Commonwealth. 

We rated the top ten summer vacation spots where we are most likely to see some of Pennsylvania's power elite.

Hope you're having a great summer...so far!
