The City of Brotherly Love

Steeped in cultural and historical heritage, Philadelphia is known as the birthplace of U.S. democracy, as it was once the meeting place for the country's Founding Fathers.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Reading Terminal Market and Rittenhouse Square. Venture out of the city with trips to Chadds Ford (Brandywine River Museum of Art & Chaddsford Winery) and Longwood Gardens (in Kennett Square). And it doesn't end there: try to win big at Harrah's Philadelphia, get engrossed in the history at Eastern State Penitentiary, take a stroll through Boathouse Row, and appreciate the history behind Liberty Bell Center.
