The East Coast boasts numerous great cities such as Atlanta, Washington, D.C., Boston and New York. However, the Philadelphia, PA area may be the best at giving its residents a small-town feel with all of the conveniences and culture that a big city brings. Part of this is because of Philadelphia’s history and well-defined neighborhoods.
