Philadelphia

Philadelphia - if not the oldest then certainly the most historically significant city in the US, this is a must-visit for history buffs, families, and city breakers. You can easily spend a whole day, if not two, in Independence National Historical Park. Home of the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, this is where both the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution were drafted and signed. First, stop by the Visitors Centre to obtain your free timed ticket for admittance to the Hall and get your bearings. There is so much to see in this most historic square mile, you won't want to miss anything!

Missing Europe? We didn't think so, but Philadelphia has a fabulous Rodin museum with the biggest collection outside France. Feeling energetic? Time to make like Rocky and head for the Philadelphia Museum of Art - don't just run the stairs - go inside - this is one of the best museums in the US. Visit the first ever zoo in the United States - by foot, or by guided bike tour.

And when you're ready for something to eat you have to sample the classic Philadelphia Cheesesteak. And where better to try one than Reading Terminal Market. This is quintessential Philly with its buzzing atmosphere, delicious smells, fresh produce stalls and hand-made jewellery stands. It's the perfect place for lunch and a spot of shopping. Speaking of shopping - there is no sales tax on clothing or shoes, so make sure you budget in some serious shopping time. Philadelphia is full of outlet stores and malls, ask us to recommend a full day's itinerary!

"I love Philadelphia. I was shocked at what a great city this is. For me, it is the cat's pajamas."
George Dzundza, Actor
