Philadelphia,PA Travel Guide

by our United States expert Paul Baderman
 
Paul BadermanPhiladelphia isn’t just an historic city, it truly is the birthplace of the USA. The thriving colony established by William Penn’s 1682 Charter rapidly became a major port, trading centre and, critically, a political focus. At that stage it was the largest city after London in the then British Empire and the fight to leave that empire was led from here. Both the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were framed here – by local patriots such as Franklin and Washington. The Liberty Bell has its own visitor Center, the house of Betsy Ross who sewed the original ‘Old Glory’ still stands, Independence Hall is an active symbol of the ‘Brotherly Love’ the city’s name denotes and the Constitution’s averral that ‘all men are created equal’. The cobbled square mile of the historic city centre throws up images and associations with freedom everywhere you look.
