Things To Do In Philadelphia

Philadelphia, founded as a city in 1682 by William Penn, was considered the heart of commerce during the time and was the busiest port in British America until 1750, when it was surpassed by London. Much of that thriving economic mentality still lives on today in what is often referred to as “The City of Brotherly Love” or “Philly.” Philadelphia is called the “City of Brotherly Love” because of its name, which was derived from the Greek words Philos (loving) and Adelphos (brother). William Penn names his colony Philadelphia, for brotherly love, since he was looking to establish tolerance, peace, and religious freedom. King Charles II granted Penn a charter or the Pennsylvania colony, but despite this, Penn bought the land from the Lenape (Delaware) Indians on good terms, cementing peace for the new colony of Philadelphia.

Philadelphia has much to offer in the way of history, but more importantly Revolutionary Era American History. Historical facts are in abundance in this wonderful city. For example, Philadelphia was the first American Colony to have hospitals, and both George Washington and John Adams served their presidencies living in a Mansion on 6th and Market Street in Philadelphia. The Wyndham Philadelphia Historic hotel is located within walking distance of many of these prominent historical locations.
