Philadelphia: birthplace of Will Smith, the Philly Cheesesteak and the Declaration of Independence. Few cities are as important as this one. It’s where all of America’s values were brought to life, and where the finer details of the US Constitution were hammered out. With its rich history, diverse culture and the 2,090-pound, semi-cracked Liberty Bell, it’s a great starting point for getting immersed in the story that epitomises the Land of the Free.
Popular Philadelphia Holidays
It’d be mad to visit east coast USA and not factor in a trip to Philadelphia – you’ll not only be able to get up-close to the symbolic Liberty Bell, but, if you’re feeling energetic, you can run up the same 72 steps that infamous movie boxer Rocky did too! You can experience all this, and more, with our Journeys range of holidays. Flights, accommodation, transfers, experiences and guided tours are all included, and you can explore beyond the city too, as many of our itineraries also incorporate neighbouring destinations like Washington DC, Gettysburg and Baltimore. And if our holidays don’t suit you, never fear – our Travel Experts can tailor make a trip to suit you.
