Philadelphia Links Directory and Travel Resources

(Philadelphia, Pennsylvania - PA, USA)

The state of Pennsylvania is a vast one and the city of Philadelphia sits right down in the far southeasterly corner, just over an hour from Allentown. It is even possible to reach New York (to the northeast) in comfortably under two hours by road.

Philadelphia makes the most of its East Coast setting, with its inviting dining scene, characterful neighborhoods and relative proximity to a selection of fun beaches, including those of Atlantic City (to the southeast). A series of historic buildings in the city offer a taster of its colonial past, together with its plazas and organized road gridwork. Most of the principal sights are comfortably within walking distance of each other, including the likes of the City Hall, Penn Square, the Liberty Bell Center, the National Constitution Center and the Independence National Historic Park.
