Philadelphia gave birth to the American experience – the life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness that defines the country. On our tour, we’ll visit the places where the American ideal came to life.
We’ll give you a taste of why Philadelphia is so vital to American history. In very real terms, pretty much everything that Americans hold dear– from personal liberty to religious freedom to inalienable rights – all came together in this city, long before America was even a country. No other American city holds the significance that Philly does. Yes, New York has its finances and its cultural offerings. Boston has its Tea Party, and D.C. has the federal government. But everything that defines the “American Experiment” … all took shape at the hands of Founding Fathers right here in Philadelphia.
