The Best City In America Is Actually Right Here In Pennsylvania

Most people know that Philadelphia has been a huge player in our country almost since Europeans first set foot on the Continent. It was the setting for much of our earliest history, and today still serves as one of the prime historical locations to visit for those interested in United States history. Philly sometimes gets a bad reputation for its culture; however — a judgment that we just don’t think is fair.

Whether or not you are a fan of city life, you’ve gotta hand it to Philly. The city has a lot to offer in terms of history, art, events, architecture, food, and much more.

I have to say that I agree with Lonely Planet’s categorization of Philadelphia as a city worth visiting — and I’m proud to claim it as one of Pennsylvania’s treasures. Do you have any interesting Philly stories?
