Imagine for the first time taking someone you feel for to your neighborhood. You would undoubtedly show her what you want most, the one that is dear to you: the city’s center, in addition to the areas of most significant interest. You can’t visit America without first learning where the country’s heart began to beat. This is Philadelphia, the New World’s pounding heart. So what do you do after you’ve landed in Philly? Simple. You would love to roam around this beautiful city with so many historical places.
It’s an elegant and lively community full of stuff to do, and it’s the hometown of Louisa May Alcott, Andy Warhol, and Grace Kelly. It was inscribed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2015, owing to its significant historical and cultural significance. To understand what to do in Philly (as we affectionately refer to it), we must first understand how the city is organized, which can be divided into two parts: the first, Old Town, is located on the Delaware River and is where the historical attractions are concentrated; the second, University City, is located across the Schuylkill River and looks much like the rest of the city.
The Park Of History
The Old City starts where Freedom National Historical Park finishes, in what has been dubbed “America’s most historically diverse square mile.” Without question, you cannot visit Philadelphia without even seeing a park with too many interesting sights. The Liberty Bell Center, where you can see the bronze bell whose toll followed the first reading of the Declaration of Independence, is the first stop I suggest. Independence Hall, Congress Hall, and the Benjamin Franklin Museum are also worth visiting compared to the Liberty Bell. In brief, there are endless items to do, and the park’s 22 hectares are a veritable museum of American history.
Society Hill and Elfreth’s Alley
The old city, along with Society Hill, an affluent suburban community of red brick homes, stately doors, and American flags fastened to the walls, established the initial core of Philadelphia. The houses date from the eighteenth century, and the streets of the area will immerse you in the city’s heritage, evoking all of the sentiments that Americans hold dear. Elfreth’s Alley, which is modeled after an English street in the 1800s and informed by the Brönte sisters, would charm you if you enjoyed Society Hill. It’s a charming cobblestone street with the dubious distinction of being America’s oldest street. Your wife would be eternally indebted to you. But there’s even a prize for men: Can you name the locations where Eddie Murphy’s funny scenes in Armchair for Two take place?
Philadelphia Zoo and Rittenhouse Square
Philadelphia is steeped in tradition, but it’s still a lot of fun. The Philadelphia Zoo, America’s largest, is located in Fairmount Park, and if you’re still not tired, Rittenhouse Square, also known as “the living room of the world,” offers countless things to do and will save you from shopping. Chris’ Jazz Bar, known for listening to live music, the Rumor, and the Fado Irish Pub are among the area’s clubs. But there are also excellent dining options, such as Le Bec-Fin, which is widely regarded as the best restaurant in town, and Mama Palmas, a small restaurant known for its wood-fired pizza.
In The End: Adventure Aquarium
What kid doesn’t fantasize about spending their birthday with the fascinating sea creatures? This fantasy will come true at the Adventure Aquarium. Not only that, but in addition to booking a birthday party, you can also celebrate your wedding in this magical place! Families will enjoy feeding the penguins and seeing the hippos nap, as well as seeing the tropical turtles and the king of the sea, the shark.
