Region: Philadelphia & The Countryside
The City of Brotherly Love is the birthplace of our country. Once visitors have seen the Liberty Bell, the Betsy Ross House, and Independence Hall, they can explore the city's myriad artistic and cultural offerings. Museums, exhibits, and parks present everything from Rodin to Robert Indiana, and symphonies, dance companies, theatrical groups, and pro sports teams ensure there's an activity to keep any visitor busy. Tourists can get a cheesesteak, shop at the Italian Market, check out the funky scene along South Street, or visit one of Philadelphia's many fine restaurants. On New Years' Day, the Mummers strut their stuff - 30,000 men wearing extravagant costumes and playing banjos are truly a sight to behold. Transportation to Philadelphia is easy via Amtrak’s Keystone Service that offers convenient and affordable rail service between Harrisburg and New York City via Philadelphia.
