Welcome to Philadelphia, the city that gave us the Declaration of Independence, the Liberty Bell, Grace Kelly, and the Philadelphia cheesesteak sandwich. Join this walking tour through the perfectly laid out streets that were established when the city was founded in 1682. Philadelphia was the nation's capital for ten years at the end of the 18th century.
It's where Benjamin Franklin lived and where the nation's first flag was probably sewn by Betsy Ross. Philadelphia is the nation's most historical city but it offers so much more...and more than anything, its friendly people. Philadelphia means "the City of Brotherly Love" in Greek, and that's exactly what it is.
