Living near or in a city as big as Philadelphia comes with plenty of things to do, see, and enjoy. Philly has some of the best things to do in the state of Pennsylvania and you’ll never be bored. 

Let’s visit some of them. 

The Sports Complex

Philadelphia is a sports town. There is no doubt about it. Philly loves their Eagles, Phillies, 76ers, and Flyers. The sports complex is buzzing all year round. If you hit it at the right time you may even be able to check out a football or baseball game and then scoot right across the parking lot to watch the 76ers take on their next opponent. 

With having a sports district as big as the one in Philadelphia also comes other forms of entertainment. Many musical artists and bands grace the arena and stadiums with their presence.

The Philadelphia Sports Complex will always be a favorite of many locals and also those who live only a 1-2 hours away. 

Whiz or Without? 

Philadelphia is also famous for its food scene, in particular Philly cheesesteaks. Whether you visit Pat’s, Geno’s (famous for their ordering of with cheese whiz or without), or another popular cheesesteak spot, be prepared to wait in a line no matter the time of the day. 

Not only do locals hit these spots regularly, so do visitors and out-of-towners.
