The city of Philadelphia, or 'Philly' as it's affectionately known, is positively brimming with history.
Founded by British Quaker William Penn at the end of the 17th century, it stood at the heart of the War for Independence a century later, and was eventually where the Declaration of Independence was signed. Today visitors to this World Heritage City can explore its fascinating past through visits to landmarks and institutions such as the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall and the National Constitution Center.
Your city sightseeing needn't be limited solely to Philadelphia's historical attractions, however. There is a wide range of other things to do and see in Pennsylvania’s largest city, from art galleries and botanic gardens to aquariums and tours on double-decker buses. The elegant neighbourhood of Society Hill draws many visitors with its quaint cobbled streets and red brick Georgian houses, while Fairmount Park offers 2,000 acres of walking trails, woodlands and riverside views. Be it history, culture or nature, enjoy the best of the USA’s northeast on our bus tours from Philadelphia to New York and beyond.
Delight your sweet tooth with a taste of whoopie pie.
Said to have originated within the Pennsylvania Amish community, this dessert, made with two soft chocolate cookies with a white creamy filling, is one of the state's favourite sweet treats.
Enjoy a casual lunch on your tour of Philadelphia with one of the city's specialities - the South Philly cheesesteak. This much-loved sandwich consists of thinly sliced roast beef topped with melted cheese.
Want to get a taste of Philly's local produce? One of the largest public markets in the US, the Reading Terminal Market has been operating since 1893 and is a great place to sample cheeses, seafood and meats.
