Philadelphia

Philadelphia
Steeped in cultural and historical heritage, Philadelphia is known as the birthplace of U.S.
Visiting Hawk Mountain Sanctuary and Jenkinson's Boardwalk will get you outdoors. Step off the beaten path and head to Mount Hope Estate & Winery and Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge. Venture out of the city with trips to Ephrata Cloister (in Ephrata) and Longwood Gardens (in Kennett Square). The adventure continues: try to win big at Harrah's Philadelphia, get a sense of history and politics at Independence Hall, take an in-depth tour of Eastern State Penitentiary, and pause for some photo ops at Liberty Bell Center.
