The Pennsylvanian city of Philadelphia played a key role in the early years of the United States, and was the home of many of the country’s early leaders, including George Washington, Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson. The City of Brotherly Love still has a number of attractions which belie its historical roots, including the iconic Liberty Bell, the Independence National Historical Park and the impressively elaborate Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania Masonic Temple. History buffs can also enjoy the nation’s first prison, the Eastern State Penitentiary, and two of the finest museum in North America. Once the city’s old buildings have been exhausted, visitors can also enjoy the tranquil Fairmont Park, one of the largest green spaces in the whole of the USA.
