Independence Mall

Independence Mall is said to be the birthplace of democracy and home of many iconic places in our nation’s history. While walking through “America’s Most Historic Square Mile,” you can visit Independence Hall where our forefathers signed the Declaration of Independence and then head into the Constitution Center to experience an interactive museum featuring exhibits that highlight the history of the U.S. Constitution. Don’t forget to stop by the Liberty Bell and seamstress and American flag curator, Betsy Ross’ House.

Rocky Statue at the Philadelphia Museum of Art

The Rocky Statue currently rests at the bottom of the famous Philadelphia Museum of Art steps featured in Rocky III. Every visit to Philadelphia should include a run up the steps and a photo op with fists raised in the air yelling, “Yo, Adrian!” It’s a Philadelphia rite of passage.


Always imitated, never duplicated – the best cheesesteaks in the world are found in Philadelphia. Amongst locals, there is always a passionate argument for which is truly #1. Taste test the most famous and decide for yourself which is the best between, Pat’s, Geno’s, Jim’s, Dalessandro’s, or Tony Luke’s.

Reading Terminal Market

The number one attraction in Philadelphia is its famous indoor farmer’s market, offering a wide variety of food including Amish baked goods and even the home of Oprah’s favorite mac n’ cheese. You’ll be sorry if you don’t grab a cannoli at Termini Brothers on your way out. It’s said to be the best cannoli on this side of the Atlantic.

Lincoln Financial Field

Lincoln Financial Field is the resting place of the Vince Lombardi Trophy and the home of the underdogs, the most recent 2018 Super Bowl Champions, the Philadelphia Eagles. In preparation for a visit here, everyone should watch Eagle’s player Jason Kelce’s speech at the Eagles 2018 Super Bowl parade. Fly Eagles, fly!
