Philadelphia is the fifth most populous city in the United States. With an estimated population of 1,500,000 residents. Philadelphia is one of the oldest and most historically noteworthy cities in the United States. During part of the 18th century, the city was the second capital and most populous city of the United States. At that time, it eclipsed Boston and New York City in political and social magnitude, with Benjamin Franklin playing an remarkable role in Philadelphia's rise. In 1976, Philadelphia was one of the participating cities in the United States Bicentennial observances that took place nationwide. The city's name means "brotherly love" in Greek. The city�s forte today is its great energy, supported by history, strong cultural establishments and an exciting new downtown convention center.

Things to Do

No visitor should leave here without discovering "America�s most historic square mile," which covers a meager four blocks just west of the Delaware River. But it's home to such important monuments such as the famed Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, where the Declaration of Independence was prepared and signed, the Congress Hall, first seat of the new United States Congress; Carpenter�s Hall, where the delegates of the first Continental Congress met and aired their criticisms against the English king; and the Old City Hall, home to the U.S. Supreme Court from 1791 until 1800.

Take a trip to some of Philadelphia's historic and traditional museums, such as Mutter Museum, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Franklin Institute Science Museum, Rosenbach Museum, and Please Touch Museum.

If you are a sports fan check out one of many teams in Philadelphia. The Eagles, 76ers, Philly's, and the Flyers to name a few.
