Only a two-hour train ride from New York, Philadelphia makes for a great weekend escape on beautiful September and October days. Philadelphia is a must-see city for its rich history and culture, but also for its more laid-back lifestyle. Come to Philadelphia to discover the early history of the United States, to discover the European-like small city vibe, to discover the famous South Street with its boutiques and alternative culture. From BYO’s to the famous Steven Starr restaurants, Philadelphia has a fantastic restaurant scene worth exploring, too. Our favorite season to visit this city is in the Fall. There’s nothing like a brisk walk around Philadelphia the autumn, when colorful trees enchant this lovely city.
