Philadelphia, also known as the City of Brotherly Love, is located on the east coast of the USA, 90-minutes’ drive south of New York and two hours from Washington DC.
While it would be easy to spend a week exploring all the wonders in Philadelphia and its surrounds, we recommend giving yourself at least two days at the bare minimum in the city.
Philadelphia is a great two- to three-day add-on to any New York City itinerary.
Not just cheesesteaks! Philadelphia is rich in history, and contemporary culture. The city is known for being the first capital of the United States, having the first university, first mint, and first department store in the U.S., and more recently, for its fabulous street art and wonderful galleries.
Visit the historical mile, home of the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, the birthplace of the U.S. Constitution. Head out to south Philadelphia and check out some of the amazing murals, the Magic Garden and the Italian market. Art-lovers must visit the Barnes Foundation and Philadelphia Art Museum!
Philadelphia has a sporting team for every season. In 2018, the Philadelphia Eagles won the Superbowl in American football. They have Australian Ben Simmons as one of the stars of the 76ers (Basketball), plus teams like the Flyers (Ice Hockey), Phillies (Baseball).
