Best Time to Visit Philadelphia
If there’s one season to avoid going to Philadelphia during, its summer. Known for its searing heat and sticky humidity, summer brings temperatures of up to 37℃ as well as large numbers of tourists to the city. As with any peak tourist season, you’ll have to expect long lines and inflated hotel prices during this period.
For a more pleasant Philadelphia experience, choose instead to visit in spring - from March to May the weather is a pleasant 20-26℃, and the city’s horticulture is in its prime. April also brings the Subaru Cherry Blossom Festival of Greater Philadelphia to town; enjoy a pastel-coloured floral canopy as the elusive flowers burst into full bloom at Fairmount Park, where more than 1,000 cherry blossom trees gifted from Japan were planted in 1926.
Things to do in Philadelphia
If Washington D.C is the United States’ centre of politics and New York city its cultural hub, Philadelphia must be the historical heart of the country. The city is the home of the iconic Liberty Bell, the symbol of American independence, which was last rung in 1776 to commemorate the reading of the Declaration of Independence announcing the 13 founding states’ move away from British colonial rule. Not a stone’s throw away from the Bell is the historic Independence Hall, a building which saw both the United States Constitution and Declaration of Independence discussed, approved and put into place.
