Student Travel In Philadelphia

(Planning Student Group Trips to Philadelphia)

Philadelphia

NOT ONLY IS PHILADELPHIA THE LARGEST CITY IN THE COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA,

BUT IT IS ALSO THE FIFTH-MOST-POPULATED CITY IN THE ENTIRE UNITED STATES.

Home to several large museums as well as historical attractions, such as the Liberty Bell and Eastern State Penitentiary, Philadelphia is also a great stopover city between New York City and Washington, D.C. While many consider it a college town, Philadelphia once played a key role in the history of our nation during the American Revolution – it is where both the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were signed into action.

We recommend the following activities when traveling with your group in the beautiful city of Philadelphia.
