The birthplace of liberty, Philadelphia is one of the cultural and historical capitals of the US. The City of Brotherly Love is a city of firsts with America's first zoo, newspaper, and hospital founded in Philly. A key city during the American Revolution, Philadelphia is home to some significant historical sights, like the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall. But Philly isn't all about history. Opportunities for an exciting getaway are endless: tour Pennsylvania's finest art museums, chow down on a world-famous Philly Cheesesteak, or catch an Eagles game at Lincoln Financial Field.

Just make sure to wrap up warm, as spring in Philly can be a little chilly.

Things to Do in Philadelphia

Things to Do in Philadelphia

After you've settled in at one of the best RV parks in Philadelphia, you'll be ready to explore one of America's most vibrant cities. Getting around major metro areas in an RV can be tricky, so consider oversized parking options and traffic before taking your camper downtown. Philly is one of the worst cities for driving in the country, and oversized parking is sparse and expensive. We'd recommend leaving your motorhome on the outskirts and using Philly's subway and train lines to get around and avoid getting stuck in traffic.

Philadelphia is one of the oldest cities in the country, and any history buff will want to check out the Independence Hall National Historical Park. This 55-acre area is home to some of the most important buildings in American history. See where the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution were signed at Independence Hall, learn the history of the Liberty Bell, and grab a bite to eat at John Adams' favorite watering hole, the City Tavern.

Campers looking to keep their whole crew happy might want to plan a day out at the Philadelphia Zoo. First opened in the 1870s, the Philadelphia Zoo is the oldest zoo in America and is home to 1,300 species from across the globe. Come face-to-face with your favorite animals, including Amur tigers, red pandas, and Sumatran orangutans. If you're searching for some added excitement, try your hand at the WildWorks ropes course, an aerial obstacle course suspended over 30 feet above the ground.

If tourist attractions aren't your thing and you'd prefer to spend your days in the surrounding countryside, escape to Neshaminy State Park. This 330-acre park sits 30 minutes from Philadelphia along the Delaware River. There are no better places for hiking near the city, with 4 miles of riverside trails that provide breathtaking vistas of Philadelphia's skyline. Anglers will enjoy fishing for bass and catfish, and the park has a large marina in case you want to take your boat out. You can also relax with a picnic and spot some of the 75 bird species that visit the park.
