Philadelphia in a nutshell
Philadelphia, a dynamic place where big city excitement meets hometown charm, awaits your arrival.
Famous as the birthplace of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, the cradle of liberty offers much more than cobblestone
streets and historical landmarks. Cultural, culinary, artistic and ethnic treasures abound in this city and its surrounding countryside.
The fifth-largest city in the country, Philadelphia is a welcoming place, a city based on freedom of expression.
New and one-of-a-kind attractions, a wealth of art and culture,
renowned performing arts companies, awe-inspiring architecture,
a walkable downtown, seemingly endless shopping (with no tax on clothes) and a restaurant renaissance
that has caught the world's attention all promise to create an unforgettable Philadelphia experience.
And, of course, the greatest concentration of American history can be found just blocks away at Independence
National Historical Park, including the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall.
Best of all, Philadelphia's compact downtown places all of this and so much more within a short walk or
cab ride from the Pennsylvania Convention Center and any downtown hotel.
