Steeped in cultural and historical heritage, Philadelphia is known as the birthplace of U.S.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Philadelphia: Longwood Gardens (in Kennett Square), Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge (in Oceanville) and Brandywine River Museum of Art (in Chadds Ford). There's still lots to do: take a stroll through Atlantic City Boardwalk, ponder the world of politics at Independence Hall, admire the masterpieces at Barnes Foundation, and get engrossed in the history at Eastern State Penitentiary.

To see traveler tips, reviews, other places to visit, and tourist information, read our Philadelphia road trip planning tool .

In December, daily temperatures in Philadelphia can reach 48°F, while at night they dip to 35°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 28th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
