Make the Most of Your Time in Philadelphia - America's Birthplace and Most Historic City!
Independence Hall in Philadelphia's Historic District. The final version of the Declaration of Independence was adopted by the Continental Congress at Independence Hall, the birthplace of the United States of America, on July 4, 1776. Eleven years later, Independence Hall would also witness the creation of the U.S. Constitution, on September 17, 1787.
Philadelphia is a city brimming with attractions, sports, arts, culture, and hotspots. This site is for anyone who would like to make the most of their time in the city and region- whether it's for:
or a lifetime.
We hope to make it a unique resource, for anyone traveling, studying, or living in the city or region.
If you're looking for something in particular, you can use the Google Custom Search box below, to search
of the constantly growing pages, of all Enjoying Philadelphia - there are currently 265 pages and counting.
The colony of
Pennsylvania - then consisting of only three counties - was founded by William Penn in 1682 - that is, nearly a century, before the thirteen American colonies declared their independence from Great Britain.
Accordingly, the richly textured history of Philadelphia - Pennsylvania's first and largest city - is second to none. To use only the most prominent examples:
1776, the Declaration of Independence was vigorously debated and signed here. Eleven years later, in 1787, the U.S. Constitution was debated with equal vigor, and written here.
You can visit the
Pennsylvania State House - now known as Independence Hall - where both documents were adopted. Of course, just across the street, you can also see the Liberty Bell, perhaps the most lasting symbol of the nation's freedoms.
However, the city and region have a great deal more to offer than their boundless, authentic history. They have world-class museums and cultural institutions, countless restaurants and nightclubs, and a full, year-round calendar of sporting events - to name just a few.
so many things to do in the city and region, that even a lifelong native of the area, could never hope to directly experience all of them.
And for that reason, the challenge is even
more daunting, for a visitor who is here for a day, or a week.
The mission of
Enjoying Philadelphia is to help you - the visitor, student, or resident - enjoy the city and region to the utmost. Accordingly, throughout site construction, we'll be seeking to assemble the ultimate guide to various attractions and offerings.
And hopefully, each time you visit, you'll find something else new and exciting to do, in the City of Brotherly Love.
