Philadelphia is a very historic city. Its name means ‘brotherly love’. It has been the place of many firsts in the United States, including the first hospital and medical school, the first library, first stock exchange and the first zoo. During the Revolutionary War, it was temporarily the nation’s capital. 39 million people visit the Greater Philadelphia region each year.

In particular, if you are a fan of the colonial style of architecture, Philadelphia is a good place to visit, because many buildings of this city date back to that period in history. Maybe you have downloaded some Philadelphia wallpapers from the internet that show these buildings and they are worth taking a look at in person.
The Franklin institute is one of the cities more prominent places to visit. It has a history dating back to 1824, and if you interested in science, will be sure to be of interest.
