Conde Nast Traveler featured Philadelphia on its 2021 Gold List as one of the best destinations in the world along with places like Rome and Kauai, Hawaii, writes Sarah Zlotnick for the Philadelphia Magazine.
When describing Philadelphia, Conde Nest Traveler associate editor Betsy Blumenthal recalls it as a special place where people do not care about pretense or what others think of it.
“One place I return to both in daydream and reality is Fairmount Park, behind the famed art museum, and the miles-long pathway that traces a circle around that part of the Schuylkill River,” she wrote.
Other memorable details include the Italian Market, murals, “the digestible chaos of Chinatown, the essential, if flawed, sense of American history, the beautiful, dilapidated row houses that speak to the promise of equality we haven’t yet reached as a country.”
And while the article does not come close to describing all of the beauties of Philadelphia and everything that is on offer, it is a nice invitation that allows travelers to discover the joys of the City of Brotherly Love on their own.
