    Visit Philadelphia

    Beyond its historical significance, Philadelphia has more than meets the eye. Visit the iconic Rocky statue. Built in honor of Sylvester Stallone’s “Rocky III,” this statue makes for a great photo opportunity.

    The Liberty Bell is a must-see historical destination, but the lesser-known Independence Hall bears similar significance. Independence Hall is where the Declaration of Independence was signed and was the starting place for America’s Revolution against England.

    After a long day in the city, grab a bite to eat at the 127-year old Reading Terminal Market. Even if Philadelphia Cheesesteak isn’t your cup of tea, this market offers a variety of snacks and cuisine.

    Some local favorites are roasted pork sandwiches, roast duck, Amish-style soft pretzels, and Amish-style rotisserie chicken.
