Gogobot's Las Vegas City Guide offers the best personalized guide to Sin City. The original capital of the nation, Philadelphia was laid out by William Penn Jr in 1682, on a grid system that was to provide the pattern for most American cities. It was envisaged as a "greene countrie towne," traces of which are still discernable. Just a few blocks away from the noise and crowds of downtown, shady cobbled alleys stand lined with red-brick colonial houses, while the peace and quiet of huge Fairmount Park make it easy to forget you're in a major metropolis. Settled by Quakers, Philadelphia prospered swiftly on the back of trade and commerce, and by the 1750s had become the second.
Steeped in history as the birthplace of America, outsiders have long declared Philly good for nothing more than a wholesome school field trip. But this vibrant city has more to offer than photo shoots of the Liberty Bell; recent years have seen the spiffing-up of several neighborhoods around Central City, meaning the addition of hip new eateries, boutiques and bars. A walk from South Philly's Italian Market (home to the famous cheesesteak) to the Gaybourhood in West Philly displays the full spectrum of the city's economic and ethnic diversity. Cross Schuylkill River to join studious twenty-somethings in their daytime walks across the U. Penn campus before they abandon their academic oasis in favor of drinks and cheap food. Be prepared for weather: this humid metropolis heats up in summer months and drops below freezing (sometimes accompanied by blizzards) during the long winter months
