PHILADELPHIA ATTRACTIONS

Said to be ‘dear to the hearts of America’s fiercest flag-wavers,’ Philadelphia offers visitors a good deal more than 300-years of heritage. However, it is a living monument to the historic ideals that gave birth to the United States of America, in particular, Independence Hall, part of Independence National Park, the home of the famous fractured Liberty Bell. Today, it is recognized as a major cultural center with world-class museums, performing arts and some stunning architecture. Even the briefest stay in Philadelphia will acquaint you with this heritage, but remember, there is a good deal more on offer in Americas fifth largest city besides history.
