Steeped in cultural and historical heritage, Philadelphia is known as the birthplace of U.S.
Let the collections at Philadelphia Museum of Art and Eastern State Penitentiary capture your imagination. Take a break from the city and head to Valley Forge National Historical Park and Cape May County Park & Zoo. Change things up with these side-trips from Philadelphia: Atlantic City Boardwalk (in Atlantic City), Longwood Gardens (in Kennett Square) and Wildwood Beach (in Wildwood). There's much more to do: get a sense of history and politics at Independence Hall, enjoy the sand and surf at Ventnor City Beach, admire the masterpieces at Barnes Foundation, and wander the streets of Rittenhouse Square.

To find traveler tips, other places to visit, ratings, and other tourist information, you can read our Philadelphia trip maker website .

In August in Philadelphia, expect temperatures between 85°F during the day and 69°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 14th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
