Information about Philadelphia

Why Philadelphia? Philadelphia is Pennsylvania’s largest city and although it boasts the culture and glamour of a big city, it also retains its small-town charm. Dive into the American spirit in the city where it all began – here you can find many iconic landmarks that played a pivotal role in the establishment of the United States of America. Independence Hall was where the Declaration of Independence and Constitution was signed and is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. More of its rich history is on display at the Liberty Bell and other American Revolutionary sites. The city has a very enjoyable and walk-able downtown, distinct neighbourhoods, great restaurants, fantastic arts and culture scene, colourful outdoor life, tax-free shopping and much more. Something for everyone!
