There is so much to do and see in Philadelphia, it’s hard to know where to start. For most visitors to Philadelphia, it’s best to start at the beginning. After all, this is where the “Declaration of Independence” and the Constitution were written and signed, thus signalling the beginning of American freedom and civil liberties.
Today, travellers on Philadelphia flights gear up for a whirlwind history lesson. Sure, there’s the Liberty Bell, the signing of the Constitution and Independence Place, but if you look closely you’ll find that history runs deep within the Philadelphia limits. Pay close attention to Philadelphia hotels – look closely and you’ll see a combination of old Philadelphia combined with the new world. Philadelphia is packed full of cobblestone streets, grand halls and historic homes.
Movie lovers can run up the stairs of the Capitol building – ala Sylvester Stallone in Rocky – and then stand in line for cheese steak at one of the city’s famous stands. Sports lovers book flights to Philadelphia to cheer on the Eagles, the Phillies, the Flyers and the 76ers.
