Steeped in cultural and historical heritage, Philadelphia is known as the birthplace of U.S.
For shopping fun, head to Reading Terminal Market or Rittenhouse Square. Valley Forge National Historical Park and Christ Church are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Explore Philadelphia's surroundings by going to Longwood Gardens (in Kennett Square), Stroud Preserve (in West Chester) and Wissahickon Valley Watershed Association (in Ambler). There's still lots to do: identify plant and animal life at The Scott Arboretum of Swarthmore College, trek along Schuylkill River Trail, immerse yourself in nature at Fort Washington State Park, and explore the landscape on two wheels at Cynwyd Heritage Trail.
