Why It's Worth It

Philadelphia is a city of history and heart. Go to Independence Hall and you’ll see where American democracy was born. Take a snap of Robert Indiana’s iconic statue reproduction, and you’ll feel the love. Stroll through Fairmont Park and relish North America’s largest urban green space (9,200 acres). World-class museums, top-notch universities, striking street art, a fun waterfront, and sports galore are other reasons to visit—not to mention the cheese steaks. —Maureen Littlejohn
