Founded by William Penn in 1682, Philly, as it’s affectionately known, is steeped in US history and is the home of many “firsts.” Philly hosted the First Continental Congress of 1774; it also had the first hospital, the first stock exchange, the first zoo, the first university–the list goes on. It was also the first capital of the United States during colonial times. With so much history tied into our national identity, a walk along Philly’s narrow streets and a trip through one of its many museums could fill a vacation. But there’s so much to Philadelphia besides its past. Besides its thriving science and financial sectors, Philly is home to the arts and has a nightlife all its own.
