Vote to make this city a priority

Overview

Founded by Quaker William Penn all the way back in 1682, the original capital for the fledgling United States, and home to some of the most important museums, sites, and institutions, Philadelphia's one of America's most iconic cities. From the Liberty Bell to the famous Philly cheesesteak, Philly's hometown to some of the greatest of greats in all of the world of Americana. It's a city that's always been defining greatness, and doesn't appear to be letting up any time soon.

This dichotomy of history and modernity manifests itself just about everywhere in Philly: historic cobbled streets—dotted with old taverns and chic gastropubs—give way to stunning modern architecture; modern art museums complement historic icons; indie rock wafts from clubs and classical masterpieces fill concert halls. It's a city with two sides—a city with its stunning future built on its prodigious past.
