One of the most popular and populous cities in the United States resides on the East Coast. Philadelphia is overflowing with history, food, people and things to do. One could spend a year in the city and still not experience all of it. From visiting the museums to catching a game from one of their 4 major professional sports teams, Philadelphia has it all.
The best way to secure a trip to the City of Brotherly Love is probably through a travel website such as Travelocity or Kayak. A travel website will have anything you need in order to book a long trip to Philly. The websites will have options to book a flight, hotel, car and any insurance or vacation extras. Therefore, your largest expenses and stresses are already taken care of so you can spend more time focusing on your experience in the city.
Being able to walk around the historic city, see the museums, eat the food and/or attend a game is a great feature to Philadelphia. If possible, try to plan a trip in the Spring or Fall as the Summers tend to be hot and muggy and the winters are cold, snowy and unpredictable. With many things to do and see in the city we want to start you off with the United States first International Style skyscraper, the PSFS Building, which was built in 1932. From there be sure to hit the Philadelphia Art Museum, made extra popular by the film “Rocky” as Stallone raced up the long flight of steps. In Old City, the Kimmel Center for Performing Arts is home to the Philadelphia Orchestra, one of the top 5 orchestras in the U.S. Lastly, be sure to visit the Franklin Institute, home of the Benjamin Franklin National Memorial.
When you have the need to feed, the city is known for its hoagies, soft pretzels and cheesesteak. There are plenty of spots to find any of these finger-foods while wandering the city. There are also many new Vietnamese and Asian restaurants sprouting up throughout Philadelphia. Some of these are higher end and priced as such while others are lower budget. Depending upon your palate and checkbook, you will have options.
No matter if you are a fan of sports, food or history, Philadelphia has it all. Consider getting away for a vacation or long weekend in one of the most historic cities in the United States.
