Steeped in cultural and historical heritage, Philadelphia is known as the birthplace of U.S.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Air Mobility Command Museum and Emlen Physick Estate. Your inner history buff will appreciate Asa Packer Mansion and Cape May Carriage Company. Venture out of the city with trips to North Wildwood Beach (in North Wildwood), Ocean City Beach (in Ocean City) and Lucy the Elephant (in Margate City). There's much more to do: brush up on your military savvy at Naval Air Station Wildwood Aviation Museum, get a sense of history and politics at Independence Hall, admire the masterpieces at Philadelphia Museum of Art, and take an in-depth tour of Eastern State Penitentiary.

For other places to visit, more things to do, maps, and tourist information, you can read our Philadelphia tour itinerary planner .

Expect a daytime high around 85°F in August, and nighttime lows around 69°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 21st (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
