Whether You Want to Catch a Game or the Ballet, Philadelphia Has It

Philadelphia is the place to be when you’re looking for true entertainment. For anyone who loves sports, the Phillies, Eagles and 76ers never disappoint. If you like the competition a little wet and wild, check out the Dad Vail Regatta or the International Dragon Boat Festival. When an evening at the ballet or an aria by a world-class mezzo-soprano is part of your plans, pick up tickets to the Academy of Music. The Merriam Theater is the place to see the latest Broadway tour without the Big Apple chaos—and prices. For some great people-watching as you sip an iced café au lait, there’s just no place like historic Reading Terminal Market. And once you’ve sampled our own Bank & Bourbon restaurant, we suggest a trip to Rittenhouse Row for some fine dining.
