Once the second largest city in the British Empire, this Mid-Atlantic city is now the fifth largest metropolitan area in the United States. Starting life under the Dutch, Philadelphia was one of the most sought after port cities for Europeans coming to the New World.
The English took it over in the late 1600s and it was one of the focal points in the Revolutionary War. So many historical and important aspects of early American government centered on Philadelphia that it is know as the Birthplace of America.Also called "The City of Brotherly Love", Philadelphia is a symbol of freedom and because it is so steeped in American history, there are many important places to view our progression toward democracy.
Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, Rittenhouse Square (one of the four squares designed by William Penn) along with sites in tribute to famous Americans like Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson.
An early cultural center, there are over a dozen top quality museums as well. From the enormous Philadelphia Museum of Art to smaller more specialized ones, the city is a haven for the tourist as well as researchers. Theatre and classical music have major facilities as do professional and college sports teams. All four major American sports are covered by championship winning teams.
Such a preserved city has historical importance for its architecture as well. While the row house was one of the most common forms of housing, there is a wealth of Georgian, Colonial, Federal and Greek Revival architectural examples as well. Choosing a Philadelphia apartment will find many options for whatever your lifestyle.
There are no official districts in Philadelphia and most locals refer to their area by neighborhood name. Because of the huge influx of immigrants from all over the world, there is huge diversity to be found. Briefly, Center City houses the museum district, upscale Society Hill, Chinatown, and more.
The city spread out from there and one finds every type of community and neighborhood imaginable. Location will be key if you choose to commute by way of the city's vast subway, bus or trolley lines so mapping out your choice will be important.
Although ethnic food is available literally everywhere, Philadelphia's best known dish is the Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich and eateries all over the city vie for the title of "best". Which is your favorite, Pat's, Geno's or Jim's? Starting at the corner of 9th and Wharton, where the sandwich is known to have been invented, cheesesteak places radiate out all over the city. Also popular are soft pretzels and scrapple (a spicy breakfast pork) but everything from the most obscure ethnic foods to mainstream chain style are available.
Philly At Night
Nightlife is so wide and varied there's a single website devoted to finding your own style. Called philly2nite.com, it's a valuable source for both locals and tourists.
