Once upon a time, the main draw surrounding the best things to do in Philadelphia had lots to do with Revolutionary War history. Although that’s still a great reason to visit town, exciting new urban development projects, restaurant and bar openings and a burgeoning community of innovators, artists and chefs have made this Pennsylvania city much more than a twirl around the Liberty Bell.
There are oh-so-many things to do here: a revamped shopping and fashion district has found its footing at Market East, whereas the boom of entertainment hotspots has taken over the Delaware River waterfront. Culinary fiends will undoubtedly appreciate the local food scene, which has been nabbing international buzz—and then some (we’ve got the best Philly cheesesteaks right here).
