All of these places offer a wide selection of food from many different cultures and areas of the world. A sample of Cajun, Korean, Mexican, Cuban, Italian, or Thai food can be tasted and don’t forget about the cheesesteak or soft pretzel.

The arts add to the culture scene in this beloved city. There are many artists that have thrived or begun their adventure here with the support of the locals and many tourists.A building’s stunning architecture adds to any city’s culture, and this city has quite a few examples of that. First, the row house is a common home for many in the city, which was first introduced in the early 19th century in Philadelphia.The row home is not the only notable bit of architecture, but the city also has more outdoor murals and sculptures than other city in the United States.

Furthermore, Fairmount Park, which is a system of parks throughout the city limits, is the largest urban park. Fairmount Park is made up of an astounding 9200 acres, compared to New York City’s Central Park’s 843.

Boathouse Row, which is situated along the Schuykill River and houses many college and community rowing clubs, makes for a delightful view. This is especially true at night, when it is lit up and visible from I-476.
