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.

Seriously cold winters and humid summers suggest that anyone planning on taking cheap flights to Philadelphia do so in the fall or spring. Those unafraid of battling the crowds can aim to be in Philadelphia on the 4th of July or Independence Day as it is also known when the city throws a party for its country.
The heat of summer and cold of winter make the in-between seasons (fall and spring) the ideal times to visit. One other consideration to keep in mind when planning your cheap flights to Philadelphia is that it has some 80 universities and colleges with up to 300,000 students enrolled in post-secondary study. It makes sense to avoid the start and end of terms to avoid the mass arrival and exodus.
Winter falls into this category but there is a price to be paid for the cheap flights and hotel costs in the form of having to brave the sometimes-uncomfortably cold temperatures.
