Steeped in cultural and historical heritage, Philadelphia is known as the birthplace of U.S.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Independence Hall and Christ Church. Step off the beaten path and head to Parasailing & Paragliding and Ocean City Beach. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Philadelphia: Air Mobility Command Museum (in Dover), Nemours Mansion & Gardens (in Wilmington) and Cherry Crest Adventure Farm (in Ronks). There's lots more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Jenkinson's Boardwalk, stroll through Seaside Park Beach, explore and take pictures at Point Pleasant Beach, and take a leisurely stroll along Belmar Beach.

To see photos, traveler tips, reviews, and tourist information, you can read our Philadelphia trip itinerary website .

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are Erase Me 19, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 34°C in August, and nighttime lows around 24°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 17th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
