Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

For Independence Day, eScapes brings you a look at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, site of the Second Continental Congress that approved the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776.

Philadelphia is a city that has historically guided the United States towards progress. Outside of politics, the city has been a leader in industry, commerce, and, notably, tolerance. Named from the Greek for “brotherly love,” Philadelphia was early in its history a safe haven from religious persecution and later held a large African-American population during the times of slavery.
