Philadelphia has something for everyone. It’s fun, wild, quirky, historic, contemplative, and inspirational all at once. It’s the metropolis that brought the world everything from the Declaration of Independence to The Roots and beyond.
Take some time during your visit to explore the off-the-beaten-path side of the city. See the parks and trails in what was ranked one of the nation’s most walkable and bikeable cities. Tour through the nation’s only helicopter museum. Marvel at the largest collection of Rodin sculptures outside of Paris. Stay at the prison that held Al Capone. Taste the best cheesesteaks you’ll ever eat. And then keep going. There’s so much more.
