Philadelphia—Philly, Cradle of America, City of Brotherly Love (and Sisterly Affection) … no matter what you call it, Pennsylvania’s largest city has played a key role in American history.

That’s why we’ve put together the Sonnhalter Insider’s Guide to Philadelphia to help you find the best this great city has to offer.

We’ve asked some of our Philly friends for their recommendations on the best food, nightlife and the outof-the-way places only locals know about. Because sure, you want to decide for yourself who has the best cheesesteak, but this city has so much more to offer.
