While the Eagles might be struggling, Philly boasts an incredible range of perks for interested travellers, including zoos, museums and more. So don’t be like Chip Kelly; embrace the city of Philadelphia with open arms, and they’ll welcome you. Join us, on our tour of Philadelphia for Tourists, the top 3 locations!

Please Touch Museum

We start off our tour with one for the kids! The Please Touch Museum is aptly named, as the building is aimed at encouraging the learning of children aged 7 and younger. The museum has a whole range of exhibits, all designed with the idea of children touching and joining in activities. From racing sailboats to live theatre performances, you and your kids will have an incredible time at this much loved location.

Philadelphia Zoo

Everyone loves a great zoo, and the city of Philadelphia is no exception. Philadelphia Zoo has an incredible range of animals, from lions to tigers, bats to bears, and more. Make sure you take your kids on a ride of the Rainforest Carousel, a beautifully constructed ride that replaces horses with exotic animals. Finally, you can even go on a real pony ride! There’s something for everyone, at Philadelphia Zoo.

Independence Hall

We finish our tour of Philly with a trip to one of the most historic locations in the world. Independence Hall is widely considered the actual birthplace of the USA, and today serves as a historical monument to America’s history. Make sure you check out the Assembly Room, where the Declaration of Independence was signed. Whether you love history or not, be sure to visit to this historic venue.
