25 Best U.S. Vacation Cities On the Cheap

#23: Philadelphia, PA

Philadelphia is jam packed with free things to do, especially in the summer. The 2009 PECO Energy Multicultural Festival season features 12 weekend festivals throughout the summer. Dance some salsa on the Delaware River and eat authentic dishes from the Caribbean, Ireland, and Mexico, then head to the heart of Philadelphia and get free tickets to tour both Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell.

Philadelphia’s Art Museum is the the best photo opportunity in the city: right beside a statue of famous movie boxer Rocky. While you’re there, enjoy the view from the steps of the museum and try to catch a glimpse of a crew team rowing down the river. If you want to grab a cheap (but delicious!) bite to eat, head to Philadelphia’s Italian Market, one of the largest open-air markets in the U.S.

Don’t Miss: You can’t leave Philly without tasting a cheese steak! Two of the most famed, Pat’s and Geno’s, are located right in the Italian Market, around South street.
