Philadelphia; a city famous for its brotherly love and cheesesteaks. Yet this city is also known for its deep-rooted history in the formation of the United States. It is here where the foundation of the United States was laid and the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were signed. So after enjoying one of the famous cheesesteaks and taking your picture in front of the LOVE statue, take the time to explore all that historical Philadelphia has to offer. The sites chosen are places that are definite musts and can be easily done in a three day weekend.

City of Brotherly Love

Philadelphia was one of the first great cities of our nation. Not only was the Declaration of Independence signed here but it was also the United State's capital for awhile. Philadelphia now is still one of the top ten most visited cities in America.

Philadelphia is a great place to visit for both history fans and those just wanting to experience a new place. For history for go Betsy Ross's house, Liberty Bell or City Hall. For those who like to shop, explore and eat go to South Street for unique boutiques and good places to eat. If you want a cheese steak go to Pat or Geno's for a famous and delicious meal. For more chain shops such as Urban Outfitters, American Apparel and Sephora go to the Center City area near Market and Walnut Streets. If you are looking for a bar to go to at night try either Northern Liberties or South Street. Do not venture too far north because it gets bad very quickly.

Philadelphia is rising back to it's former glory by making creative fashions, food and art. It is not only a great place to go to college, like I do, but it is a fun place to visit.

I currently live in Philadelphia and it is a great city full of things to do. There are many places to go out for a drink or grab a cheesesteak. Pat and Geno's are the most famous but places to eat them can be found in almost every neighborhood. The art museum in Philadelphia is also a very good place to visit. They often have very famous exhibits such as Salvador Dali or Frida Kahlo there.

There is also great shopping in the center city area, particularly around Market and Locust Streets. There are high end shops as well as cheaper shops there for all shoppers. It is also beneficial to look at City Hall, which is right on Market Street in Center City.

Do not drive into Philadelphia though. Like most cities it is a nightmare with stop lights and there are also many backroads that have stop signs every block and it gets very frustrating.
