Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (JOBS), The City of Brotherly Love, is the second largest city on the East Coast and ranks fifth in the US. With every Philly Cheesesteak you eat, you can get side orders of big city excitement, cultural diversity and history, and friendly hospitality.
Philadelphia is rife with American history! It's where the Declaration of Independence was signed and where the US Constitution was written, and it was the US capital from 1790 to 1800. It is the location of the Liberty Bell, Betsy Ross' House, Valley Forge, and Independence Hall.
However, there's more to Philadelphia than history. It is also the home of the Rodin Museum, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the creepy, yet fascinating, Mütter Museum at the College of Physicians of Philadelphia (to learn more, read Not Your Average Tourist Spot).
If culture is your cup of tea, besides all the wonderful museums and art galleries, there is a professional orchestra, opera company, the Philly Pops, a ballet company, and a thriving theater scene.
If major league sports are your game, you'll have MLB's Phillies, the NHL's Flyers, the NFL's Eagles, and the NBA's 76ers to root for (and that's just the professional teams, it doesn't include the college action).
And speaking of schools, Philadelphia is also a great place to get an education. It's home to the second largest number of colleges in the nation. Within the five-county region, there are 49 colleges and universities.
