Philadelphia Airport Guide

Philadelphia has so many attractions it’s worth buying a PhiladelphiaPASS that gives free or reduced price admission to many of the city’s sights. That said, the biggest and best attraction is free of charge. Philadelphia has the largest collection of street art in the US and some of the pieces are awesome. Another popular attraction is the Philadelphia Magic Garden, a small bohemian neighbourhood where you can discover all kinds of folk art as well as hear music performed on the street whilst artists paint portraits. A rather macabre place to visit is the former Eastern State Penitentiary which held many of America’s most infamous criminals and which hosts special scary tours on Halloween.
