Philadelphia, the place where it all began

There are so many wonderful cities in North America, and many are within driving distance of Toronto. I had the pleasure of spending a few days in Philadelphia over the 4th of July weekend, and was pleasantly surprised at how enjoyable my stay was.

Philadelphia is of course the birthplace of American politics, and the first capital of the 13 states that made up the United States of America. Flying there takes about an hour, but the drive, which takes about eight hours, has some pretty interesting stops along the way.
