You might think of Philadelphia as all about history, and it is: as America's birthplace, it does indeed boast more historic structures and institutions than any other city. But it is also about the present: a vibrant, growing city full of exciting new ideas, places to see, and things to do. You can skateboard or play ultimate Frisbee on world-class facilities or you can explore the charisma and creativity of Benjamin Franklin; you can wander down historic Boathouse Row and watch the quiet beauty of a rowing shell as it slices through the waters of the Schuylkill, or enjoy a cutting-edge art exhibit at the world-famous Institute of Contemporary Art. Whatever you choose to do, you can't avoid the charm and culture of one of the most historically-significant cities in the world.
