Landmarks in Philadelphia

As the cradle of the American Revolution, Philadelphia has many sites and tours dedicated to life and government in the colonies, most of which are concentrated in the Old City and Society Hill neighborhoods. Ride a horse and buggy through the cobblestone streets, take a look at Ben Franklin's print shop, or tour the building where the Constitution was drafted. Philadelphia also has plenty of landmarks outside of these districts, including numerous sculptures and scenic areas.
