Experience Boat Tours in Philadelphia

Best things to do: A boat tour is a great way to start your Philadelphia adventure. Then it’s time to delve into the city and its historical past. You have the Philadelphia Museum of Art to explore. The Liberty Bell and Independence Hall for the history of the country. Not leaving out Philadelphia Zoo, (America’s first zoo) for a peek at the animals. Finally, why not climb the steps and raise those arms like Rocky in the movie? Shout it out, loud and proud.

Best time to visit: Head for Philly in the spring months (March to May). The cold of the winter is passing, and the city is literally springing to life! The Cherry Blossoms are gorgeous at this time.

Munch on a cheesesteak: All that touring will no doubt make you hungry, so seek out the local favourite, the Philly cheesesteak. It was invented in the 1930s and is thinly sliced beef in a crusty roll. Then add the cheese and you are ready to go! Happy munching.

• Philadelphia is a city of firsts. It hosted America’s first birthday, started America’s first daily newspaper (The Philadelphia Packet and Daily Advertiser) in 1794 and is home to America’s first zoo. Oh, and hospital and medical school!

• You’ll love the art that you can find in this city, there are over 2000 outdoor murals in the city. No wonder it’s called the “mural capital of the U.S.”

• The local culinary favourite, the cheesesteak is a Philly favourite. In 1988 the largest sandwich was created. It was the length of a football field! Yikes, that’s a lot of cheese!
