Fascinating History in Philadelphia

Having played a key role in the American Revolution, Philadelphia is a fantastic destination for history lovers. The City of Brotherly Love is home to more than 50 monumental sites, including the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall. Choose your ideal car from our huge fleet of vehicles and bring history to life by driving to prime locations such as Franklin Court and the Benjamin Franklin Museum before heading over to the Franklin Institute to discover more about one of America's most famous Founding Fathers. After picking up your Philadelphia hire car, schedule a scenic drive down Benjamin Franklin Parkway towards the Delaware river, before parking up and wandering cobbled Elfreth’s Alley, America's oldest continuously inhabited street.

Food and Culture in Philadelphia

Foodies will more than get their fill in Philadelphia. Begin by fuelling up at either of its two famous markets, Reading Terminal Market or the South 9th Street Italian Market. The food here spans a wide variety of cuisines, but make sure you try a classic Philly Cheesesteak sandwich during your trip – for the original recipe invented in 1930, drive to Pat's King of Steaks. Kids will love journeying out of the centre to visit the Please Touch Museum, while arty types should see the Magic Gardens, a fantastic collection of mosaics made with everything from bike wheels to china plates.
