9 Things You Can Only Brag About If You’re From Philadelphia
We’re proud to be from Philadelphia because it’s just about the best place you can live. Do you brag about your hometown when you travel, or when people ask where you’re from? Here’s a little look into our Philadelphia Brag Book – share it to show your city pride.
1. We're known for our intense loyalty.
We show up, even when the Eagles, Phillies, and Sixers don't. Sometimes... rarely... we get rewarded with a huge winning season.
2. We're possibly the most historic city in the country.
Yes, Boston has a lot of history, as does New York... but what other city can truly claim to be the birthplace of America?
3. Our dining scene is out of this world.
Philadelphia is recognized all around the world as a top destination for foodies. From the only Tall Ship restaurant in the country at the Moshulu, to the best sandwich in America at DiNic's, Philly is foodie heaven.
4. Philadelphia is home to some truly incredible museums.
Whether you prefer the creepy Mutter Museum or the world-famous Franklin Institute, Philadelphia is the perfect city for hopping from museum to museum.
Brag about these all you want, Philly. We are the only place on earth where you can really get a good cheesesteak.
6. The best performers in the world flock to Philly.
Philadelphia has an impressive performing arts scene. The Philadelphia Orchestra is world famous, the Walnut Street Theater is the oldest in the United States, and we've got more music venues than you can imagine!
7. Philly is a really green city.
William Penn wanted Philadelphia and the surrounding area to be his "Greene countrie towne", and his dream has really come true. Philadelphia is known, among other things, as the "Cradle of American Horticulture." Amazing gardens, parks, and green spaces make Philadelphia truly one of a kind when it comes to American cities.
8. Philadelphia is America's first World Heritage City.
Our commitment to culture, arts and history earned Philly this prestigious designation in 2015.
9. We really know how to celebrate a holiday.
From the Mummers to Thanksgiving, Philly knows how to throw a parade. Maybe this year we'll get lucky and be able to celebrate the best holiday of all - a Super Bowl win.
Philadelphia is truly an amazing city – one that a visitor, or resident, never forgets. Sometimes, though, our visitors and natives clash. Read up on these
