Introduction

Along the Delaware and Schuylkill rivers, just beneath New Jersey, Philadelphia is the "city of brotherly love" - quite literally if you look at the name in Greek. Philadelphia was the country's temporary capital from 1790 and 1800, and it was the location of the signing of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution - historical sights abound.

Philadelphia is known for and extraordinarily proud of its cheesesteaks, but Matador has some other places to dine in case you don't want a cheesesteak every night of your stay. It's also on Matador's lists for best burger in America and best ice cream shop.

The city has an eclectic art scene: galleries and the Magic Gardens on South Street, the Rodin Museum, the thousands of murals, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
