Description:

Ahh, the city of brotherly love. So why is everyone here flipping you off? Well, probably because you're wearing a Tony Romo jersey. That, or we might just be saying hello.

This is a city that prides itself on its gritty, blue-collar, anything-goes reputation. Consequently, good times at a low expense are in high demand here, making it a pefect destination for budgeted traveling.

For the humanities crowd, there are a wealth of museums and historic sites to check out in our nation's birthplace. For nature lovers, Philly boasts one of the greenest metropolitan areas in the United States, with Fairmount Park alone making up 10% of the city's land area. For sports lovers, there are few better sports experiences than catching a Phillies/Eagles/Sixers/Flyers game live in south Philly (box seat lovers and those with virgin ears need not apply).

Oh yea, and cheesesteaks. We have those too. Definitely have one here if you haven't, but don't get hung up on that - there are plenty of other great eats here, let alone the other 1,000 uniquely Philadelphian experiences the city has to offer.
