Philadelphia Maps and Orientation

(Philadelphia, Pennsylvania - PA, USA)

The biggest city within the whole of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia is also the seat of the county of the same name. Located alongside both the Delaware River and the Schuylkill River, on the far southeastern side of the state, Philadelphia lies next to the border with New Jersey and within relatively close proximity to Delaware.

Visitors will generally find that Philadelphia is easy to get around, with many of the principal tourist attractions, museums and hotels being reachable on foot. All of the streets heading in an east to west direction have been named, while those heading north to south are generally known by numbers.

The historic heart of Philadelphia comprises the Old City, the Independence National Historic Park and waterfront areas. Head directly to the east and you will soon encounter the Center City neighborhood and its notable landmarks, namely the City Hall and Penn Square.
