Philadelphia Racks Up Accolades from New York Times, Condé Nast and more


Philadelphia’s star continues to shine and people are taking notice. After our recent collaboration with National Geographic, the city was listed #3 on the New York Times ’52 Places To Go’ list this month. Named alongside international destinations such as Milan and Chile, the article makes mention of the projects which have ‘transformed Philadelphia into a hive of outdoor urban activity’ including Dilworth Park, the Delaware River waterfront, the Spruce Street Harbor Park and the city’s bike share program which will be unveiled this spring.

Also making note of the city’s assets is Condé Nast Traveler, who named Philadelphia among its‘Best Shopping Cities in the World’, calling out the famous Reading Terminal Market among other places. Philadelphia’s food scene gets special attention in the February issue of Travel + Leisure which dubs it ‘America’s Next Great Food City’ for culinary heavyweights like Serpico and High Street on Market. And even Fast Co. magazine is taking notice, as the city made their most recent list of ‘The 10 Most Livable Global Cities for Balancing Work and Play.’

Across the country and the world, Philadelphia is being recognized as a forward-thinking, modern renaissance city where an inspired, creative culture is blooming. What better destination for your next meeting or convention!
