Philadelphia Travel guide
Philadelphia : Michelin's recommendations
Cradle of US history, the "City of Brotherly Love" marks the country's earliest strides toward nationhood. The First and Second Continental Congresses were held here in the 1770s, setting an irrevocable course for America's separation from Great Britain. A spirit of industry and culture prevails today, and the city boasts a vibrant arts and theater scene, a wealth of fine museums, myriad upscale restaurants, three major universities and four professional sports teams.
