Discover the power house of the USA and experience two incredible cities that shaped a nationThe cities of Washington, DC and Philadelphia are not to be overlooked when considering your next holiday to the USA. Diverse neighbourhoods, a booming food scene and numerous historically important monuments, memorials and museums to visit that showcase just why these two cities have held such an important role in shaping the United States of today.
Packed with historically important attractions, a booming food scene and an eclectic mix of neighbourhoods, Philadelphia certainly won’t disappoint. After starting your day with a hearty breakfast it’s time to get out and explore this vibrant city with a few hours spent strolling around Independence National Historic Park. Visit Independence Hall where the Declaration of Independence was signed in 1787, before making your way to the Liberty Bell to get a first-hand look at this iconic attraction. Those with an eye for the arts will love Philadelphia’s Museum of Art which houses world-class collections, though should this not quite be your scene the museums steps alone should be enough of a draw. Climb the famed “Rocky Steps” made famous by the ‘Rocky’ movies before heading back to the bottom where you can stop to pose for a photo with the Rocky Balboa statue before enjoying a gentle stroll along the scenic waterfront back to Downtown. Of course no visit to Philadelphia would be complete without enjoying the vibrant food scene and grabbing the classic Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich.
