While you may know Philadelphia is the capital of Pennsylvania, did you know it was also once the capital of the United States? And that it is where the Declaration of Independence was signed? The city has a strong link to America’s independence, as well as a rich colonial history that began in 1682 and can still be experienced today. Most of your time exploring Philadelphia’s colonial history will be spent in the Old City, the nation’s most historic square mile, with many heritage sites, galleries and cultural experiences.
