Philadelphia is a city of a several personalities. On the one hand, it is a purely urban destination. One the other, it is a colonial masterpiece and a cornerstone of American history. It is a unique combination of elegance and raw urbanity. Exploring Philly with my good friend Valerie, who grew up in a Philadelphia suburb, offered me insights to the East Coast American city—and also ended up surprising both of us. Upon exploring the city I came to the conclusion that Philadelphia is really cool and layered with different histories creating an experience similar to New York, but with a less intense visitor requirement quota.
