Between the famous sights, the city sounds, and the allure of a great cheesesteak sandwich, it's easy to get caught up in living in one of North America's most exciting cities. The City of Brotherly Love will steal your heart.
Philadelphia is first and foremost an intellectual playground. Everywhere you turn you'll learn more about how this great city shaped our nation. Learn more about the document that shapes our everyday lives as Americans at the National Constitution Center. See the famous "Thinker" at the Rodin Museum. Take a walk through the Philadelphia Museum of Art, which will remind you of the great European museums in its comprehensive approach to masters like Claude Monet, Pierre Auguste Renoir, Paul Cezanne, and Vincent van Gogh. An afternoon at the art museum in Philly is one you will never forget--though you may find yourself spending more than one to see every collection. After a day at the museum (which would also make a great DATE at the museum), be sure to snap pics in front of the famous "Love" sculpture in front.
It's not all about the grown-ups. Take the kids out for a day at the Please Touch Museum. There, through 6 themed interactive zones, they'll chuck out museum conventions and engage with the world around them (a remarkable sight in the era of the iPad). Whether they're learning about the ecosystem of a lily pond in a "Nature" exhibit, or taking tea with the Mad Hatter in the "Alice and Wonderland" exhibit, there is something here that will interest every kid: from tomboys to bookworms, and everything in between. The Franklin Institute is another place to nourish a child's love of learning. Or an adult's-- its exhibits on the human body, electricity, and geology will astound children and adults alike.
As wonderful as they are in Philly, cultural amenities and museums alone do not make a city a great place to live. Philadelphians do that. They are the heart of Philadelphia, and that's what makes it great. There are the Eagles, the Phillies, the 76ers, whose games bring everyone together. There is one of most cheeky, irreverent street cultures-- not to mention ad campaigns-- on the East Coast. Finally, there are the kind of opportunities that only a world-class city such as this one brings to its citizens. With 13 Fortune 500 companies in the area, Philly is a place where you can still dream big, shake things up, and make it happen.
