Philadelphia, located in Southeastern Pennsylvania, is the fifth most-populous city in the United States

Philadelphia has been called the “Birthplace of America” for its role in the creation of
America’s modern democracy. Philadelphia was home to the convening of the Continental Congress, as well as the writing of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.

It is also home to the Liberty Bell and to Independence Hall, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Philadelphia has undergone a rebirth in recent decades, and is now a major city with great food and other cultural attractions.
