Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Philadelphia is known as the "Real Birthplace of America." The Liberty Bell and the Declaration of Independence are notable parts of its rich history. Beyond the tourist sights lies a city of neighborhoods rich in culture. Each neighborhood has its own character and atmosphere. Philly has a vibrant food and arts scene down south, a converted fisherman's village up north and a dense commercial center. Great park systems and museums make it an ideal place for young families. The lack of parking in the city has made it the fifth most walkable large city in the nation and is also known as a "biker's paradise." Affordable urban living makes Philly and ideal choice for any homebuyer.
