When WestJet flies to this destination:
Home to some of the United States' most historic events, this world-class city is over three hundred years old. Besides being the place where the Declaration of Independence and American Constitution were signed, Philadelphia is one of the country's most historically and culturally rich destinations.
Over 1.5 million people call the City of Brotherly Love home, making it the fifth largest city in the United States. Even as early as the 1750s, Philadelphia was one of the country's largest cities and busiest port of the original 13 American colonies and one of the country's most important founding cities.
Philadelphia's Fairmount Park is the largest landscaped urban park in the world and sets the precedence for more outdoor sculptures and murals than any other American city. But if you'd rather peruse the artistic and historic offerings indoors, Philadelphia's museums range in diversity, much as the city's immeasurably diverse attractions. Museums here are historic and modern, funky and elegant, large-scale and intimate. Regardless which niche you choose, The Franklin Institute Science Museum and the Philadelphia Museum of Art are heavy-hitters and are a good place to start for any museum goer.
While visiting, you'll have ample opportunity to get a taste of Philadelphia's athletic offerings. A sports-fan's paradise, Philadelphia is one of only twelve North American cities to have a professional sports team in all four major leagues, and have been boasting this for nearly 100 years.
And it's not just history and sports that Philadelphia has bragging rights on, it's also their world-class fare. Philadelphia cheesesteaks are famous, and there is no shortage of authentic restaurants to partake in this tradition. On one side of South Philadelphia's most famous cheesesteak corner, you'll find Geno's Steaks. Geno's has been serving up these sandwiches from its location on East Passyunk Avenue for over 40 years. Open 24 hours a day, foodies visit Geno's at all hours on any day of the week. On the other side of the corner, you'll find Pat's King of Steaks. This shop's claim to fame is that its founder, Pat Oliveri, invented the steak sandwich in 1930. If you want to taste an authentic Philly cheesesteak, either of these locations is at the top of the list for locals and visitors alike.
There's no shortage of action-packed activities to partake in while visiting Philadelphia. For further details about this great city, go to visitphilly.com.
