Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, popularly known as “The City of Brotherly Love,” is also the birthplace of America. It was in this city that the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States were drafted and signed – two documents which allowed 13 independent states to form the most successful republic in world history.
