Philadelphia is one of the most historically-rich cities in American history, and at one point in the 1800s it was even larger than New York City and claimed the honor of being the largest city in America. A lot of important things happened here, and if you happen to be traveling to New York this year, why not reserve some of your time to take one or more day trips from NYC to Philadelphia? Hop on an entertaining and educational bus tour that will take you from New York, through New Jersey, and past Pennsylvania until you finally reach Philadelphia and all of its impressive landmarks and attractions. Your Philadelphia Day Trip will produce memories that will last a lifetime.
What Will You See?
One of the first things you will see upon arriving in Philadelphia is the culturally-rich Chinatown located in the center of Philadelphia. This bright and diverse area features some of the tastiest authentic Chinese dishes. The area is also rich with sculptures and other artwork created by Chinese artisans. After satisfying your appetite, take some time to do some window shopping or buy some cultural souvenirs.
Next, get ready to take a breathtaking ride down Benjamin Franklin Parkway, which is a scenic pathway right through the heart of one of Philadelphia’s most cultural areas. You will then have the privilege of traveling past Elfreth Alley, which claims the distinguished honor of being the oldest inhabited street in America.
Other memorable attractions included in your Philadelphia Day Trip include the Liberty Bell, Constitution Hall and Constitution Square. After you have brushed up on your constitutional history, you will have the opportunity to head over to Independence Hall, where both the Constitution and Declaration of Independence were heavily debated and eventually adopted.
Your tour will also take you to the Philadelphia Museum of Art – a grandiose building that houses more than 227,000 pieces, including decorative arts, paintings, drawings and prints. Next, prepare to spend some time in the quaint Amish marketplace in Lancaster, where you can purchase some of the freshest produce, dairy products, baked goods and more. Finally, take in the impressive sights of the Amish Farmhouse, which stretches out almost as far as the eye can see with rich farmlands and culture.
