About the location
Philadelphia, or “Philly” as it is just as often called, is one of my favorite cities in the Northeast. The history, culture, and people are the main reasons I have loved visiting and working in this city time and time again. It's no surprise to me that National Geographic recently named Philly as one of two American spots on their annual “Best Trips List” - one of the best cities in the world to visit in 2020.

Highlights of Philadelphia
Historical must-sees are of course in the guide, but you'll also find plenty of other gems and photo-ops.
Sure, the city is swarming with historical sites that history buffs will love! But that isn’t all Philly has to offer. The food scene is incredible, and there is always something fabulous going on, and the architecture is stunning. I constantly find myself looking up in awe of the buildings around me.
Any type of food you could possibly want you will find in this wonderful, culturally diverse city. I always feel like I never stop eating in Philly, because I just want to try all the things! Luckily, it is easy to get lots of steps in, as Philadelphia is one of the top five most walkable cities in the US. You will love exploring as you walk the beautiful streets.
Whether visiting in Spring, Summer, Winter, or Fall, you’ll find there is always something wonderful going on!
