Philadelphia is the largest city in Pennsylvania and the 6th largest city in the United States. It is commonly known as the “City of Brotherly Love.” Established in 1682 by William Penn, the city's design was created based on a grid system with neatly organized squares and parallel streets. Penn named most of the streets that run west to east after trees. The numbered streets run north to south. There is so much to see and do in this magnificent city, so let’s get started.
