Best Attractions In Philadelphia Discover The Must-Visit Attractions In Philly's Center City


As the largest city in the state and the 6th largest city in the country, Philadelphia is brimming with wealth, technology, history, higher education, innovation, art and horticulture. With its centralized East Coast location, more than half of the country’s population is within a two-hour flight of the city. Even if you’ve never set foot on its city streets, you’ve heard a tale of mouthwatering Philly cheesesteaks, the iconic Liberty Bell, the Rocky Steps and a city filled with brotherly love. 

With the summer months just around the corner, you may fantasize about a road trip to Philadelphia. It would be impossible to explore this robust city in just a few days, but if you have to keep your trip short, we recommend planning a stay during the week. By shifting your travel dates from a weekend getaway to a weekday escape, you can score major discounts on area hotel rates and avoid overcrowding. 

Check out the best hotel in Center City for a weekday escape and the best attractions in Philadelphia to visit during the week!
