A Few Things To Do and See In Philadelphia
The Liberty Bell
The Liberty Bell was originally used to call the Pennsylvania Assembly to meetings. It has long been used as a symbol by abolitionists, suffragists and Civil Rights advocates. The bell is free to visit year-round and draws people from around the nation.
Hello, Rocky—Philadelphia Museum of Art
Since Rocky’s triumphant run, the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art have become an international destination. Visitors often jog up the stairs, pumping their fists in the air like Rocky and enjoying the spectacular view. At the bottom of the stairs is a bronze statue of Rocky, created for the movie Rocky III. It’s a perfect photo op.
Get A Philly Cheesesteak
The Philly cheesesteak is inarguably the city’s most famous food, chopped (or thinly sliced) steak and a choice of cheeses and/or fried onions on a hoagie roll. Want to sound authentic? Order your cheesesteak: American (or provolone or Whiz) and “wit” or “without” (onions). There are tons of places to get that unique Philly experience, like the corner of South 9th Street and Passyunk Avenue, where Geno’s Steaks and Pat’s King of Steaks feed the masses daily.
Independence Hall Tour
In 1776, the Founding Fathers signed the Declaration of Independence in Independence Hall's Assembly Room. Just 11 years later, representatives from a dozen states met here to lay the framework for the U.S. Constitution. Today, the building is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is the centerpiece of Independence National Historical Park.
Franklin Institute Science Museum
The Franklin Institute has a wide appeal because of its interactive displays on everything from physics to astronomy. Don’t miss The Sports Challenge, which explains the science behind sports like surfing and rock climbing with the help of simulators. Or explore space without ever leaving the ground at the Fels Planetarium.
