A Philadelphia Story

Often referred to as ‘the birthplace of America’, this vibrant city is jam-packed with historical attractions – Philadelphia holidays provide the perfect place to visit if you’re looking for a dose of culture.

Considered as one of the oldest cities in the US, you’ll discover plenty of fascinating museums and interesting heritage sites. Take in a menagerie of modern and classical artwork at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and Rodin Museum or discover more of the world around you with a visit to the Franklin Institute Science Museum. Keep your eyes peeled – there is plenty more artwork to be found as you meander your way through this city - scattered on parks, squares and streets. The Magic Gardens is a must visit for culture vultures – a huge indoor and outdoor installation made entirely of mosaics.

Modern Metropolis

Aside from its cultural offerings, sport fans will find plenty to discover on holidays to Philadelphia. Catch a game at one of the city’s stadiums, whether you fancy watching the Phillies play baseball or the 76ers play basketball, it’s well worth going to experience the buzzing atmosphere of the arenas.

After all that excitement, you’ll need to refuel and a getaway to this part of Pennsylvania would be incomplete without sampling the famous Philadelphia Cheesesteak. Head to Pat’s King of Steaks for that delicious concoction of steak and cheese before taking a relaxing stroll in one of the city’s many parks. A visit to the Independence National Historic Park is well deserved on your Philadelphia city break as it is home to the Liberty Bell, one of the symbols of American independence.
