Philadelphia is one of the most historically important cities in the United States, and its storied past shines through in the present-day heart of the city. Visitors can check out Independence Hall, where both the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution were adopted. Just outside is the iconic Liberty Bell, taken from the original steeple of the Hall and serving as a symbol of American freedom for centuries.

Dive into the local Philly culture at the Magic Gardens, a massive half-block art installation by a mosaic mural artist, with an indoor gallery and a sculpture garden. This whimsical attraction took 14 years to complete, and after spending a little time admiring its details, you’ll see why. Make your way to Reading Terminal Market to sample the best local food and music Philadelphia has to offer. Be sure to grab a famous Philly cheesesteak sandwich, a crusty roll full of sliced beef, melted cheese, onions, peppers, and mushrooms.
