Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Holidays

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania’s largest city, is notable for its rich history, on display at the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall (where the Declaration of Independence and Constitution were signed) and other American Revolutionary sites. Also iconic are the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, immortalized by Sylvester Stallone’s triumphant run in the film "Rocky."

Philadelphia Holidays

The city has a fervent sports culture, most evident when the Eagles (pro football) or Phillies (pro baseball) teams play at home. Colourful murals adorn thousands of building exteriors, the lively Delaware River waterfront offers concerts and festivals, and nearly 10,000 acres of parkland dot the city, from landscaped Rittenhouse Square to sprawling Fairmount Park. Popular neighbourhoods include arty Fishtown, Washington Square West, and Bella Vista, home to the longstanding Italian Market.
The centre of the city still boasts a downtown core of shady cobbled streets and red brick houses in the Independence National Historic Park, which is reputed to be America's most historic square mile. Independence Hall, Congress Hall and Carpenter's Hall are all here, along with the Liberty Bell.
The city boasts some outstanding art museums, including the Philadelphia Art Museum, the Rodin Museum and the Franklin Institute Science Museum which honours the life and work of Benjamin Franklin, the city's most famous ambassador. Modern Philadelphia is, of course, much more than its historic quarter and boasts some excellent museums, nightlife and entertainment.
