The City of Brotherly Love

Steeped in cultural and historical heritage, Philadelphia is known as the birthplace of U.S.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Eastern State Penitentiary and The Walters Art Museum. Discover out-of-the-way places like Independence National Historical Park and Barnes Foundation. Change things up with these side-trips from Philadelphia: Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge (in Oceanville), Hawk Mountain Sanctuary (in Kempton) and Roadside America (in Shartlesville). There's much more to do: admire the masterpieces at Philadelphia Museum of Art, browse the eclectic array of goods at Reading Terminal Market, examine the collection at The Franklin Institute, and get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports.
