1) A History Buff’s Dream

For you history nerds out there, Philly is one of the major museum headquarters of the US. Given its rich American history, dating back centuries, this makes total sense At the top of the list is City Tavern, a recreated version of the original 18th-century tavern the Founding Fathers used to drink at, which serves authentic colonial recipes today. Then there’s the Betsy Ross House, which honors the first American flag maker. The list goes on and on with the National Museum of American Jewish History, The University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, the African American Museum, the Philadelphia Mint, and the Mütter Museum, dedicated to medical history. And then there’s the ultimate Philly museum…

2) Philadelphia Museum of Art

 We can’t mention Philly without mentioning the infamous Rocky steps, now can we? Run up those steps like a champ after posing at the Rocky statue below (contrary to rumors, it’s still there, just moved to the bottom of the steps). Then enjoy over 400,000 works of art in the museum, featuring world-class art from the greats such as “Sunflowers” by Vincent Van Gogh or “Three Musicians” by Pablo Picasso.

3) Great American Food

Alright, of course, the Philly cheesesteaks are great. Checking out Pat’s, Geno’s and John’s Roast Pork is practically a rite of passage. But the City of Brotherly Love has much more tasty local goodness to offer, like their infamous soft pretzels you can find on street carts all over. There’s even a midnight Pretzel Ride for bikers. Or how about the annual Wing Bowl, the massive chicken-wing eating competition, or $1 hot dog night at Phillies stadium while catching a game in the Summer.

4) Awesome Sports Teams

Philly has a popular sports team for all four major sports. How can you possibly beat that? First, you have the 2018 Super Bowl champs the Eagles. Then you’ve got the 76ers, the Flyers, and the Phillies out at Citizens Bank Park. The city even has its own professional soccer team in the MLS, the Philadelphia Union. Five teams total.


A very little known fact to people that have never lived in Philly: it has one of the biggest bring-your-own-beer scenes in the country. The city has a whopping 200+ number of BYOB restaurants as a result of Pennsylvania’s expensive liquor licensing.
