Things to do with kids in Philadelphia

About Philadelphia, PA

You'll find cobblestone alleys and rich history in the streets of Philadelphia, the fifth-most populous American city and home to Independence Hall and the signing of the Declaration of Independence. As the birthplace of the Philly cheesesteak sandwich and soft pretzels, the City of Brotherly Love has a thriving food scene, all of which can be sampled at the Reading Terminal Market. Enjoy the city's rich culture, eclectic music scene, and, for the tots, the Philadelphia Zoo, which serves as a refuge to more than 1300 animals.
