Situated half way between New York and Washington D.C, “Philly” boasts some of America’s best-preserved historic buildings, including the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall and other sites from the American Revolution. Philadelphia is where the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were signed, so history-buffs will love exploring the city’s past. Here are some things that should definitely be on your Philadelphia checklist:
Independence Hall – This historic building is where the Founding Fathers signed the Declaration of Independence and where – just 11 years later – representatives from 12 states gathered to shape the U.S. Constitution.
Reading Terminal Market – Foodies will love this farmer’s market, which is the oldest in the United States. Here you can chow down on all sorts of fresh foods, including roast pork sandwiches and duck noodle soup.
The Rocky Steps – Don’t miss a chance to recreate the famous Rocky scene and jog up the steps of the of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, pumping your fists in the air. Once you’ve done that, head to the bottom of the stairs and have your photo taken with the bronze statue of Rocky, originally created for Rocky III.
British Citizens can travel to Philadelphia for up to 90 days by applying for an ESTA online. The ESTA is valid for two years, for multiple entries. Spring (March to May) is a great time to visit since hotel rates are affordable and the weather starts to warm up after the cold, often harsh, winter. Summer (June to August) is peak season and therefore very popular with tourists, which drives hotel prices up.
We will find you special, discounted fares that are not available online. So, by the time you take your business class flights to Philadelphia, you’ll feel happy knowing that you’ve paid less than the person seated nearest to you!
