Philadelphia Vacation Travel Guide | Expedia

  • Published on Mar 14, 2013
    Welcome to Philadelphia, considered the birthplace of the United States.
    The Declaration of Independence was written and read publicly here in 1776. When you tour Philadelphia, you’ll get a sense of the history that permeates the city through its numerous monuments, symbols, and other landmarks, such as the First Bank of the United States and the warship USS Olympia. Don’t forget to stop by the Liberty Bell and the remains of the Eastern State Penitentiary, which housed notorious criminals like Al Capone.
    You don’t need a car to enjoy your Philadelphia sightseeing; take public transportation or rent a bike to explore the city streets at your leisure. Fairmount Park is the perfect place for a stroll, and if you’ve got kids, bring them to the Please Touch Museum, where they can enjoy interactive exhibits and displays that will educate and entertain. If you’ve still got some energy after that, visit the Philadelphia Zoo and make friends with some of the animals. Don’t forget to sample some of the delicious food available in Philadelphia, particularly the fresh goods and cooked meals at the Italian Market.
    From culinary delicacies to historical importance, Philadelphia truly has it all.

      @jep Im sure. Haven't traveled all of Pennsylvania. Just my personal opinion from what I have seen though. Also, I'm not a nature kind of person so that doesn't help

    You've done a good job fixing the music up. This is much better then when it was uploaded it had fast paced music that didn't fit. Travel videos do not need to be 'hip or chic' as the other channel thinks.

    I used to live in Pitman New Jersey, about 45 min. by bus to Philly. I used to work in Center City Philly and commute every from Pitman to Philly. I love working in Philly. People are friendly and one of my happiest working days was in Philly. Now I live on the Jersey shore and it is too far for me to commute to Philly. I still go there sometimes, and I enjoyed going there just to shop and eat at the Reading Terminal or the Gallery. I do not like to live in Philly because I love living near the water. Still, Philly is one of my favorite places to visit.

    WHAT ABOUT OUR CHEESESTEAKS?!?!?! Also died a little inside when I heard the way "reading" was pronounced. I'll be the first to admit we're not the greatest city in the world, but in the US we're second to none in our passion for our city and have some of the greatest American history.
