Visiting Philadelphia can be like embarking on a primer of American history. It was here that the Declaration of Independence and Constitution were written and subsequently signed. These documents provided the basis for the US legal system and form of government, no small achievement regardless of one’s political leanings.
Among the obvious landmarks, the Liberty Bell and Independence Place stand out but it is the touch of history within a modern urban setting that sets the city apart. Visitors arriving on cheap flights to Philadelphia will have no shortage of things to do and see as can be expected of the sixth-largest city in the US, but it is the combination of new and old within the cobblestone streets of its neighbourhoods that will loom large in their memories long after they’ve returned home.
Meanwhile, film buffs and particularly those kindly disposed toward Sylvester Stallone as Rocky should make sure to visit the Capitol building where they can recreate their own take of the iconic scene of an underdog’s determination to upset the odds. Travellers kindly disposed toward professional sport can also take the opportunity to see the NFL’s Eagles, MLB’s Phillies, NHL’s Flyers or NBA’s 76ers in action.
