Philadelphia, the country's first city to be declared a World Heritage Site, is also the birthplace of the United States, where our founding fathers met, discussed, debated and formed a new country. Luckily for 21st century visitors, much of Philadelphia's history has been preserved. Philadelphia is famous for the Freedom Bell, Rocky, cheesy steaks and Mummers. In addition, it is known for its revolutionary history in general, the first-class Philadelphia Orchestra and for being the “City of Brotherly Love”.
Philadelphia is also known for its well-known art scene. The city is home to the famous Philadelphia Museum of Art, also known as “The Rocky Steps,” which showcases some of the best art in the country. Philadelphia is known for the Freedom Bell, its rich American history, and the role it played in the country's independence. As one of the oldest cities in the country, Philadelphia has developed a unique and vibrant arts and cultural scene.
The city is famous for Philadelphia's delicious cheesy steak and its uniquely shaped soft pretzels. It's also one of the largest sports cities in the U.S. UU. A Frenchman, chicken man Frank Purdue, Frank Burns, from the popular sitcom “M*A*S*H, and Tug McGraw, who helped the 1980 Phillies win the World Series (his real name was Frank) all appear on the “Philly Franks” mural.
Both the Flyers and 76ers consider the Wells Fargo Center in the city center their home, while the Phillies are in Citizens Bank Park from spring to fall. The original “Phillies Franks” were, of course, frankfurters sold under that name and backed in commercials by members of the city's baseball team. Its main sports teams are the Philadelphia Phillies, Philadelphia Eagles, Philadelphia 76ers and Philadelphia Flyers. If you miss the Eagles game in the fall, you can still watch a Flyers (NHL), 76ers (NBA), or Phillies (MLB) game while you're in town.
