Nestled on a peninsula between the Delaware and Schuylkill rivers, Philly is the birthplace of American’s modern democracy and is home to cobbled streets, the beloved Liberty Bell and Independence Hall.  Contrasting to its historical past, Philadelphia also has an incredible and diverse nightlife and food scene, from outdoor music festivals to foodie paradise, Reading Terminal Market.
