Just 100 miles to the south of NYC lies 'Philly', as it is fondly known amongst the natives. With a rich history that helped shape the outline of present day USA, it offers much more in terms of gastronomy, architecture, culture, sports, and arts. From the famous Liberty Bell to the momentous Independence Hall, history comes alive in Philadelphia. It is renowned for boasting many of U.S' firsts including the first library, first hospital, first Capital, first stock exchange and even the first zoo!
Being the only World Heritage City in the country, this is not just another consolidated metropolitan. Sleek skyscrapers, wide roads and lush green parks compliment narrow residential streets, churches and historical buildings with sophisticated accuracy. The city is known to enchant any visitor with its never-ending charm of busy days and exotic nightlife.
Philly is both modern and historic, as oxymoronic as it sounds.
