Philadelphia is not my hometown, but now that I'm here I doubt I will ever leave! There are so many reasons why I choose to call Philly home, but here are my top 5:
1) THE HISTORY-A nation was formed here, the city is so rich with architecture and culture. Where else can you walk in the footsteps of our forefathers and see the city as they did. So many streets in Olde City look as if they're untouched and have a story to tell.
2)THE FOOD INDUSTRY-Philly is on the map with it's innovative restaurants and bar scenes. So many entrepeneurs with a dollar and a dream have built successful eateries and food institutions. It makes you feel as though anything is possible
3)WALKABILITY-We are the 5 most walkable city in the country. We're doing our part to help save the environment when we park our cars and walk. Some neighborhoods just outside the city, Manayunk, East Falls, Chestnut Hill are easily accessible by train. Our public transit system is affordable and a nice alternative to driving.
4)OUR PARKS-Fairmount Park is the largest landscaped urban park in the world. It's a playground for city dwellers to run, ride bikes, or walk their dogs. Kelly and West River drives are both scenic and serene and a nice escape from the hustle and bustle.
5)THE CHEESESTEAKS-France has champagne, New England has it's chowder, Philly has cheesesteaks. You can't come to the city without getting a cheesesteak in South Philly. The competition over who sells the best one will be an on going battle. I prefer mine WIT ONIONS AND WIT WIZ!
