Between the rich colonial history, incredible food, unique traditions, and one-of-a-kind culture, the city of brotherly love has it all. Philadelphia, nestled along two rivers in between DC and NYC can be overlooked in terms of tourism, but Philly has much to offer.
As the very first capital of the USA, Philly is a go-to for history. Visit Independence Hall and see where the founding fathers signed the Declaration of Independence, view the iconic Liberty Bell up close, and wander down the perfectly maintained streets of Elfreth’s Alley. Old City is filled with cobblestone streets and red brick buildings and is great for a trip back in time.
As you head into Center City, stop by the Magic Gardens, an outdoor art space. Spring Garden, toward the west, is home to the Franklin Institute, a hands-on science museum to make any kid love learning, as well as the Art Museum, whose steps you may recognize from Rocky. Stop at Reading Terminal Market nearby for all the authentic food you need. Head to the classic cheesesteak joints -- Pat’s and Geno’s in South Philly. However, if you’re looking for the shops where even locals eat, you need to head off the main roads.
Local Philadelphians have a bit of a reputation, especially when it comes to cheering for sports teams. Ranked as one of the unfriendliest cities, locals can be a little rough at times, but if you get into a conversation with them, you may find them friendlier than you thought.
The best time to visit is in the late spring when the winter is long gone but the sweltering heat of the summer hasn't quite arrived. The fall is beautiful as well.
