As USA Today said in a recent article, this city has gone "from Rocky to rockin'."
Building on its place as the historic center of America, Philadelphia keeps adding attractions that make some call it New York City's "sixth borough"-top-notch art houses in the Barnes Foundation and the Philadelphia Museum of Art: Independence National Historic Park; the runner's paradise of Fairmount Park and its 8,900 acres; and some exceptional hotels, restaurants, and pubs.
Frommer's Philadelphia Day by Day will guide readers through this revitalized Philadelphia, quickly and with an insider's knowledge of the one-of-a-kind experiences that lurk in the city's many vibrant neighborhoods. With hundreds of color photos, dozens of annotated maps and walking tours, thematic tours for every taste and star-rated advice on where to eat, stay, shop, and have fun, this book is the perfect accompaniment to any visit to the city.
