Philadelphia otherwise know as “Philly”, is always a great getaway with many options. With the Democratic National Convention happening next week, festivals and historic sites to visit, you can’t go wrong by choosing a quick trip to the birthplace of this nation. Historic sites such as the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, The Betsy Ross house is an incentive for going to the historic district , besides going to the famous squares in the area. The Philadelphia Museum of Art is the 3rd largest in the US and is known for its great art but also has the famous “Rocky steps” as seen in the famous movie.
We all know this the town to get a good cheese steak , but you will learn its not just about “Pat and Geno’s war”, so many other steak spots in Philly! This great city is recognized for that but the Reading Terminal Market ( the oldest farmers market in the country ) does not disappoint. Love the many types of food offered here where you can get fresh meat , poultry and fish to take home. You may also like the fruit & preserves like honey or jams and fresh bread from the Amish . Yes, of course they have the best sandwiches ever at this market! Another plus,Philadelphia has a long history with breweries since the 1800’s . Most are not open now, but it’s a hot place for beer gardens! See: best beer gardens
