Philadelphia Travel Tips
Philadelphia has long lived in the overwhelming shadow of New York City, just 90 miles down the road, but this lovely city is chock-full of terrific museums, cultural centers and great restaurants. An urban renewal program kick-started in the 1970s continues to this day, revitalizing the city that was William Penn's capital and the beating heart of the Revolutionary cause.
Experience the Philadelphia renaissance by strolling through a series of spiffed-up neighborhoods, exploring glorious Fairmount Park, catching a play or symphony or a night of live music or clubbing. Oh – and, while you're at it, get a major dose of history, too.
