Philadelphia see + do

It may be the cradle of American history, but Philadelphia is actually a lot like Paris—a city of distinct and strongly loyal neighborhoods, from sedately elegant Society Hill to proudly Italian South Philly. The broad Benjamin Franklin Parkway is the city's Champs-Élysées and cultural spine, home to the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Franklin Institute Science Center, and other institutions. As you travel its length, take note of what locals call the "Father, Son, and Holy Ghost": works from three generations of the Calder family. Alexander Milne Calder's 27-ton, cast-iron William Penn crowns City Hall; his son Alexander Stirling Calder's Swann Memorial Fountain is at Logan Circle; and the white Ghost mobile that hangs in the lobby of the Art Museum was designed by grandson Alexander (Sandy) Calder.
