No matter where you travel to in the world, there are just some places you just can’t miss: consider it a traveling rite of passage.  If you’re planning a trip to Philadelphia, also known as the “City of Brotherly Love,” then be sure to check out these must-see locations:

 

Liberty Bell

Famously known for its crack, the Liberty Bell is an iconic symbol of American independence. The bell, located near Market Street, bears the message: “Proclaim Liberty Throughout All the Land Unto All the Inhabitants Thereof.” According to the National Park Service, abolitionists, women’s suffrage advocates and Civil Rights leaders took inspiration from the inscription on this bell.

 

City Hall

With 700 rooms, Philadelphia’s City Hall is one of the largest municipal buildings in the world.  Its Second Empire Architectural style offers some amazing views and perfect shots for the gram.

 

Love Park

Speaking of brotherly love, one of the first things that should be on your to-do-list when visiting Philadelphia is heading over to John F. Kennedy Plaza for the iconic red “Love Park” statue.

Art Museum Steps

After you do it for the gram by taking a picture with the Rocky Statue, running (jogging, walking, or crawling) up the 72 stone steps before the entering the Art Museum is must!  The stairs have become known as the “Rocky Steps” as a result of the famous scene in the movies.
