The City of Brotherly Love

Steeped in cultural and historical heritage, Philadelphia is known as the birthplace of U.S. democracy, as it was once the meeting place for the country's Founding Fathers. As Pennsylvania’s largest city, Philadelphia serves as the state’s nucleus of commerce and tourism. The city is made up of several distinct city boroughs sprinkled with historic 18th-century monuments, stately brick buildings, and colonial charm. Recall the American Revolution at the site of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, or visit the Franklin Institute Science Museum, honoring the work of Benjamin Franklin. Home to a vibrant retail and restaurant scene, Philadelphia is also famous for Philly cheesesteak and the soft pretzel, classic comfort foods. Use our United States vacation trip planner to arrange your visit to Philadelphia and other destinations in United States.
