Research Philadelphia Area

 

Rich in history, culture, and entertainment, Philadelphia is one of the largest and most populous cities in the United States. It is home to many venues and attractions, as well as beautiful parks and awe-inspiring scenery. Despite its size, however, it is a big city that's small enough to feel like home.

History

Philadelphia is one of the oldest cities in the United States. Both the Declaration of Independence and U.S. Constitution were signed here and, at one time, it was this nation's capital. Founded in 1682 by William Penn, the “City of Brotherly Love” was home to such famous names as Ben Franklin and Betsy Ross.
