You'll "heart" the City of Brotherly Love

The City of Brotherly Love predates the United States, settled by the Dutch around 1623 with the building of Fort Nassau. The English later conquered the area, and William Penn was granted a charter that would become the Pennsylvania Colony. From there, this important city played a major role in the fight for independence and even served as the nation's capital for a brief time. Today, Philly's rich history blends seamlessly with its modern, progressive spirit to form a city unlike any other in the US.

As one of the nation's largest cities, you'll find a variety of businesses located in Philadelphia, including Colonial Penn, CIGNA, the Philadelphia Stock Exchange (the country's oldest stock exchange), and GlaxoSmithKline. The University of Pennsylvania is the city's largest employer, along with the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

Philadelphia attracts tourists, who come to explore Independence Historical Park. This park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and contains the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall. If you enjoy older movies, you might recognize the iconic steps leading to the Philadelphia Museum of Art -- the main character in Rocky climbed them in the movie. Other notable Philadelphia landmarks include Old City, the Avenue of the Arts, and the Rodin Museum.

In addition to its historic sites, Philadelphia is famous for its art, its music, and its food (Philly cheesesteak, anyone?). Sports fans will love cheering on the NFL's Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field, the MLB's Philadelphia Phillies at Citizens Bank Park, and the NHL's Philadelphia Flyers at Wells Fargo Center.

Living in Philadelphia

  • Restaurants

    Philadelphia is about more than just cheesesteaks and pretzels. The city is also home to a number of high quality chefs and restaurateurs. Iron Chef Jose Garces has opened a number of restaurants throughout the city, including tapas restaurant Amada in Old City, upscale Mexican restaurant Distrito by the University of Pennsylvania and Volver on the Avenue of the Arts.

    If you're a vegetarian, you're in luck in Philadelphia. The town is home to Vedge, a vegan restaurant that focuses on preparing vegetables in innovative ways. If you're looking for more casual vegetarian fare, you can head to Hip City Veg, a completely vegan fast food spot.

    Of course, there are times when all you want is a cheesesteak. If you choose to live in Passyunk Square, famed rival cheesesteak joints Pat's and Geno's are just steps away. Some people swear by Jim's Steaks, over on South street, while others claim that Dalessandro’s, up in Roxborough, makes the best steak.

  • Transportation

    Many apartments in Philadelphia are within walking distance to the things you need for everyday life, from restaurants to grocery stores and from banks to movie theaters. But, the city also has a number of transit options for those times when you don't want to walk or drive. When you're renting an apartment in Philadelphia, it pays to get to know SEPTA, the city's transit system.

    SEPTA operates the buses that travel across the city and into the suburbs. It also oversees the city's two subway lines, the Broad Street Line and the Market-Frankford Line. For those times when you have to ride to the suburbs, the regional rail line will take you there in comfort. Philly is also teeming with taxis.
