Founded by William Penn in 1682 to be the capital of the Pennsylvania Colony, Philadelphia is now the center of the eight-largest metropolitan statistical area in the country. The city played a large role in U.S. history as the location at which the Declaration of Independence was signed, where the Liberty Bell was preserved, and as the temporary U.S. capital when Washington D.C. was under construction. Now, it serves as Pennsylvania’s most populous county with a large number of attractions, historical sites, and universities. See what attractions pique your interest!
