Philadelphia – Destination Highlights
- Getting to Philadelphia is easy and affordable: 40% of the U.S. population lives within one day’s drive, and there are 1,400 daily flights through Philadelphia International Airport.
- Getting around Philadelphia is also easy and affordable: it’s currently ranked the 4th most walkable city in the United States. There are 8,924 hotel rooms within a 15-minute walk of the Pennsylvania Convention Center. Philly is also the 5th most transit-friendly city, and 4th most bike-friendly, with a citywide bike-share program launching in 2015.
- William Penn envisioned Philadelphia as a “Green Countrie Town,” and that vision remains a reality today. Over 90% of residents live within walking distance of a park, and visitors can take advantage of recreational areas that feature botanical gardens, rowing and boating, hiking trails, golf and equestrian activities, all within the city limits.
- Philadelphia is a world-class city for Arts and Culture, and offers many unique cultural tour opportunities. Philly’s Mural Arts Program is home to the largest public art program in the U.S., and with close to 3,000 works, Philly has more murals than any other city in the world. Visitors can actively participate in painting a mural during their stay in Philadelphia. Philly also has the largest collection of Renoir’s works outside Paris, and more Cézanne’s than all the Parisian museums combined.
