The Ultimate Guide To Philadelphia
Philadelphia is known for its rich historical heritage, the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution were signed here in Philadelphia, in the Independence Hall. Philadelphia was the country’s capital before Washington, D.C., and is home to several museums, historical sites, and restaurants.
I highly recommend the Philadelphia City Tour / Big Bus Tours hop-on, hop-off service stopping at all major Philadelphia landmarks and purchasing a multi-attraction discounted pass from CityPASS. It’s a well-narrated tour and makes it easy to cover all major attractions without having to worry about finding parking at every attraction.
