Philadelphia is historic. The Liberty Bell Center, Independence Hall, the National Constitution Center. They’re all within three blocks of one another, and they all tell the story of our nation’s humble but heroic beginnings. It was on these streets where Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and others conversed, debated and ultimately formed a new nation. And in the nearby countryside, the story evolves even more at Valley Forge National Historical Park, the Brandywine Battlefield, Washington Crossing State Park and other historic sites.
Philadelphia is fun. Eating a cheeseteak. Watching the Phillies play at the new Citizens Bank Park. Splashing into the Delaware River while touring town on a World War II-era amphibious vehicle. Posing with the Rocky statue before running up the Philadelphia Museum of Art steps. Canoeing along Chester County’s Brandywine River. Sampling wines at one of a dozen countryside vineyards.
