Hostelling International Tripbook for

Philadelphia

6 Entries

Known as the ‘Birthplace of America’, Philadelphia is a city steeped in history and vibrant with culture. The famous Philly cheesesteak is the city’s signature food and is made up of a fresh roll with shaved beef smothered in cheese. A trip to Philadelphia wouldn’t be complete without watching a baseball game at Citizens Bank Park. Watch the Philadelphia Phillies play and don’t forget to grab a hotdog and a beer while you’re there. Visit the Philadelphia Museum of Art in Benjamin Franklin Parkway, not just for the art, but to run up those famous steps Rocky-style. Then, head to Fairmount Park and explore some of its 9,200 acres that make up 63 individual parks where you’ll find lush forest, 200 historic buildings, outdoor concerts, a Japanese garden, and so much more that you’ll be exhausted and ready to return to your hostel at the end of a long day.
