Philadelphia has more character than your average US city. It's got lots of history for a new world city some top tier museums. The food and bar scene has developed by leaps and bounds the past few years. The outing neighborhood are also interesting due to the fact of being settled by immigrants for the past couple hundred years.

Philadelphia is one of the American cities that are full of history and character, with a long list of interesting and unique historical and cultural sites. As they say, America started here... George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, American Constitution, Declaration of Independence… the list goes on… To top it all, Philadelphia is a walkable city, filled with parks and gardens, lots of cultural sites and activities, huge number of gourmet restaurants featuring the best in international and local cuisine. There are many interesting sites within an hour or so of driving from Philadelphia – Longwood Gardens, Grounds for Sculpture, Princeton, Atlantic City, New Jersey beaches. Philadelphia is only a couple of hours (give or take) away from New York, Baltimore and Washington, D.C. – it’s a great central location to explore the best of the East Coast.

I went to grad school at Temple University, and ended up living there for 15 years. Now, when I go back to visit my father, I cannot even stand to be there. I never loved Philly, which always felt smaller and less diverse than NYC. Now, there are lots of great historical sites and museums, so it is worth a visit.

One of the US's most important cities historically. It is a must see for people interested in the early founding of the country. The city center has a lot of beautiful brown stones, and is a pleasure to walk around.
