The crime is not great, but the overall experience in terms of enjoyment, are good.

I like to go out to places where there is walking.

I loved living in Philadelphia for four years. I lived in West Philadelphia while I attended university in the city. I walked, took taxis, and took public transportation to wherever I wanted to go.

South Street is extremely fun, with a happening music scene and the beautiful Magic Garden. 30th Street Station is convenient and is a nice study in architecture. Additionally, there is an excellent fusion food scene, as well as a great brunch scene.

This is a very diverse city with many people living downtown. Unfortunately, the crime is high and the schools are poor but overall the people are friendly and try to look out for each other.

There are a lot of friendly people and activities here.

I love Philadelphia because there is so much to do there, so much history, so many firsts, and all kinds of great food.

Eating cheesesteaks, pizza, and drinking Yuengling beer.

Philadelphia is always a fun family-friendly spot. The atmosphere is welcoming and has a lot to offer. In terms of location, you have numerous places to visit, from the historical Liberty Bell to the countless museums. As a New Jersey resident, I am thankful to have Philadelphia close to me. I can visit on the weekends and indulge in the delicious Philadelphia Cheesteaks. The food options in Philadelphia are really endless - from China Town to Philly’s Little Italy, you have it all in the heart of Pennsylvania. The city of “brotherly love” and the home of the 2017 Super Bowl Champions - The Philadelphia Eagles. A visit to Penn’s Landing is also a must with the beautiful view of the Delaware River.

Philadelphia’s Penn’s Landing also has live-music and delicious food vendors. There is almost a new festival every week celebrating the different cultures of America. There is also free museums, and a whole week of fun events close to the Fourth of July. There is no place better to celebrate America’s birthday, than in Philly.
