Having Fun in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
As a major player in the American Revolution, Philadelphia has many claims to fame. The city was the country's largest until New York City claimed the title in 1790. The Founding Fathers of the U.S. signed the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution here. Philly served as America's temporary capital while Washington, D.C. was under construction.
Enjoy a walking tour to navigate the city's enthralling history. You can step back in time and witness a superior overview of Independence National Historical Park and visit more than 20 historic sites.
The food of Philadelphia is ready to melt in your mouth. Cheesesteak anyone? Get out of the house this weekend and join the Flavors of Philly Tour with friends. After your cheesesteak, chow down on soft pretzels and tomato pie. Between spots, your guide will point out some highlights of Philadelphia's architecture.
You can test out the Underground Donut Tour, celebrating a variety of treats here. Locals also love the city's Stromboli, roast pork sandwich, and Irish potato candy. Take your friends and family to Philadelphia's oldest continuously operated tavern. McGillin's Olde Ale House opened in 1860, the same year Abraham Lincoln won the presidency. Savor a timeless meal at The City Tavern, a replica of a historic 18th-century building that opened in 1773. In 1776-1777, Continental and British troops used the building to house prisoners of war. In 1777, City Tavern celebrated the first 4th of July. Today, the Tavern serves authentic 18th-century recipes in period dining rooms, wine cellars, and an outdoor garden.
