Philadelphia Vacations

A capital city that seems to come alive with history, Philadelphia holds a storied place in the founding of America. The “City of Brotherly Love” dates back to the 1600s and was frequented by the country's Founding Fathers—in fact, the U.S. Constitution was written and signed here, one of the most decisive events in the country’s timeline. Follow the footsteps of George Washington and James Madison as you wander timeless cobblestone streets, not only to search for past events, but also to create a new chapter in your own history book. A vacation package in Philadelphia, PA, from Travelocity will only make it that much easier to truly immerse yourself in this celebrated city.

Hotels in Philadelphia

Whether you spend your days soaking in the hundreds of years of American history or enjoying a delectable cheesesteak and handcrafted brew, you will surely need a cozy place to rest and dream of the next day’s adventures. As you browse vacation packages in Philadelphia, consider these places to stay:

  • Club Quarters Hotel Philadelphia means business, in the best way. Enjoy a fully equipped business lounge, complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi throughout the property, and even corporate and extended-stay suites, if you need some time to woo that new client. Even the exterior of this stately brick building is professional looking.
  • Loews Philadelphia Hotel has a more modern look, but you will still find plenty of history here. It is located within the first skyscraper ever built in America. Dine at the extravagant Bank & Bourbon restaurant or have fine cuisine delivered right to your door with 24-hour room service. You’ll find all you need here.
  • The Ritz-Carlton name cannot be beat when it comes to true extravagance. It is the only five-star hotel on our list, and it is worth it. With Travelocity’s Philadelphia package deals, you won’t have to worry about splurging on that fifth star—you’ve earned it.
  • At Sofitel Philadelphia, the elegance of the French-inspired décor and the haute cuisine at Liberte Lounge just may convince you that you are in France. However, walk out your door to attractions such as the LOVE sculpture and Jeweler’s Row, and there will be no mistaking where you are.

First-Class Philadelphia Attractions

Vacations in Philadelphia are not complete without visits to iconic places like the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, but there are even more attractions here that you shouldn’t pass over. It isn’t just history either, although you could surely spend your whole trip at important sites. Don’t miss the spots below—and then top off your day with a famous Philly cheesesteak.

  • Betsy Ross House and the Benjamin Franklin Museum: If you can't get enough history, make sure to visit these excellent institutions along with the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall.
  • Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Barnes Foundation: Art aficionados must stop at these acclaimed museums. The first holds classics from Degas, Duchamp, and Cezanne; the second is a renowned private collection of impressionist, post-impressionist, and early-modern paintings.
  • Eastern State Penitentiary may seem like an odd destination, but this former prison has more stories within its walls than you would imagine. Opened in 1829, it’s seen notorious criminals from Al Capone to bank robber Willie Sutton pass through.

Festivals and Events

Timing your visit to coincide with one of the city’s many festivals is a popular way to make Philadelphia vacations even better. The year begins with the excitement of the annual Mummers Parade on January 1, a costume contest which passes in front of City Hall Plaza. Fall brings the Revolutionary Germantown Festival in October, a celebration of the Battle of Germantown, complete with authentic period clothing, a reenactment, and plenty of Revolutionary War history. The holiday season offers its own spectacular revelry, including the Blue Cross RiverRink Winterfest, which transforms Delaware Riverfront Park into a winter wonderland complete with light displays, ice skating, and holiday shopping.

As the tides of history have shown, from revolution to the present, timing is everything. This surely holds true for your upcoming trip as well, and now is the time to find your cheap vacation in Philadelphia, right here on Travelocity. With our packages, you can bundle your hotel and airfare for extra savings, plus you’ll get the peace of mind that comes with having all of your plans prepared. The Founding Fathers would approve.
