Why We Love It
Philadelphia, the City of Brotherly Love, is known for its role in American history. It served as the home for the convening of the Continental Congress, the signing of both the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, and was temporarily the Nation's Capital. The city holds many notable icons, such as the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, Love Park, and the Rocky Statue. It is also home to numerous city murals, die-hard sports fans, and the famous Philadelphia cheesesteak.
