Tourism in Philadelphia
Philadelphia was one of the main points, where the American Revolution was felt the most, with many patriotic events, and where the industrial Revolution reached its
peak. It was also the site of the first world exhibition that took place on American soil. This historical tradition has left many traditional sites to visit in this city, for instance the Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, the science institute of Benjamin Franklin, the Philadelphia Art Museum, the National Museum of Freedom, and many other museums. However, being the North American city it is, Philadelphia is not only important for its culture in all its variations, but also for the multitude of places in which to shop. Its large, clean streets filled with shop windows put the city on an equal footing with cities like New York. Other interests are leisure activities such as restaurants, cinemas or theaters, as it posses one of the oldest theaters in the country. And Philadelphia is probably one of the cities where the most diverse types entertainment can be found in all the United States. This, united with its multicultural richness and diversity of its inhabitants, gives the city a diversity that very few cities can claim.
