Philadelphia

Steeped in history dating back to the first English colonists, Philadelphia's elegant colonial architecture has been preserved and restored for visitors and residents alike, with monuments like the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall. Once the capital of the United States during the American Revolution, Philadelphia was home to residents like George Washington, Benjamin Franklin and the First Continental Congress. Today, it's home to the world's largest landscaped urban park, Fairmount Park, and is also known for quirks like its cheese steak sandwiches and numerous public art installments. For eco-minded and health-conscious visitors, Philadelphia was recently named the 5th most walkable city major city in the U.S. by Walk Score.
