Philadelphia, Pennsylvania was planned in 1682 by William Penn, a Quaker whose vision was a city based on freedom and religious tolerance. Philadelphia, which means “brotherly love” in Greek, became one of the most politically and socially important cities of its day and is now the second-largest city on the East Coast. It is hard to find a more historically significant city in the United States. Philadelphia was the nation’s second capital and played a critical role in the American Revolutionary War. The Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution were drafted here; in 1876 the city hosted the Centennial Exposition and in 1985, the Live Aid Benefit rocked the world from JFK Stadium. Visitors looking for things to do near our luxury Philadelphia, PA hotel can also run the steps leading to the Philadelphia Museum of Art – the very ones upon which Rocky Balboa trained.
