A city rich in U.S. history, Philadelphia is the largest city in the state of Pennsylvania. This city played an instrumental role in the American Revolution as the meeting place for the founding fathers who signed both the Declaration of Independence and Constitution at Independence Hall near the Liberty Bell. Philadelphia was actually the largest city in the United States until 1790 when New York City finally surpassed the city’s population. Moreover, the city was home to many of the country’s firsts, including the first library, hospital, medical school, national capital, stock exchange, business school and zoo. Many visit the Philadelphia Museum of Art, not just for the many famous works of art on display, but for the steps outside - immortalized in the movie “Rocky” by Sylvester Stallone’s winning run. Fun for all ages, the Franklin Institute science and technology center has tons of exhibits on science and industry, physics, astronomy and history.
