This is a fantastic opportunity to combine two short break destinations; You’ll start in the city that never sleeps before heading to one of America’s most iconic cities Philadelphia, the city of brotherly love and surely one of the friendliest cities in the USA.
Although most of New York’s iconic attractions are very familiar to visitors from seeing them in movies or on television, nothing compares to experiencing them first hand. Take the Staten Island Ferry and sail past the Statue of Liberty. Visit Ellis Island and discover the history of the immigrants who flocked to the new world. Stroll through the West Village or relax in leafy Central Park. Visits to The Met and the Guggenheim museums are also highly recommended for culture vultures. Take in as much of New York as you can before continuing your holiday in Philadelphia.
The streets of Philadelphia are filled with history. Independence National Historical Park is an eight-block historic neighbourhood in the very centre of old Philadelphia. The birthplace of America, as it was here that the Liberty Bell in Independence Hall rang out, summoning citizens to hear the first public reading of the American Declaration of Independence. Other museums well worth a visit include the Franklin Institute Science Museum and the Philadelphia Museum of Art; don’t forget to have your picture taken with the famous Rocky statue out front!
Despite being steeped in history, Philadelphia is also a thoroughly modern, cosmopolitan city, with a lively bar and restaurant scene, funky street art, bustling food halls and markets and a shoppers dream with tax-free shopping! The perfect combo for this twin centre holiday to America!
