Philadelphia; Historic & Beautiful

Philadelphia has been one of the many places that I have always wanted to visit.There are so many things about Philadelphia... the rich history, the Liberty bell, popular films such as Rocky, Philadelphia...and so much more.

And when I finally did manage to see it, it was so great. I just loved every moment of my trip! .

The historic buildings such as the Independence hall (declaration of independence was signed here), Congress hall, The Liberty bell, Betsy Ross's house, coupled with modern buildings, a walk through Elfreth’s alley which happens to be the oldest residential street in America (dating back to 1702), love park, and not to forget the rocky steps... made for such a memorable trip. Met some very nice people in this trip.There is sheer joy in travelling to a new place, meeting people, and learning so much more about a country!

Here are some pictures from my trip.
