Here, groups can explore the nation’s most historic square mile at Independence National Historical Park, marvel at Philadelphia’s unparalleled collection of public art — including more than 4,000 colorful murals — view groundbreaking exhibitions at iconic museums, and enjoy waterfront vistas, community parks and miles of trails in one of the largest city-owned urban park systems in the nation.
Philadelphia is one of the country’s most walkable cities with plenty to see and enjoy with over 4,000 murals.
