Thanks to Benjamin Franklin, one of the founding fathers of the United States, the ideas and actions leading to the American Revolution were formed in Philadelphia, and for this reason the city is known as "The Birthplace of America". Philadelphia was the center of the 13 original American colonies and is today is the largest city in Pennsylvania. Affectionately called "Philly", Philadelphia is an important commercial, educational and cultural center. The most impressive sight of historical importance is Independence Hall, where the Declaration of Independence was signed and the Liberty Bell can be seen in the nearby Liberty Bell Center. Apart from its many historical museums the city has several art museums, science museums and museums for natural history, archaeology and anthropology. Philly's vibrant night life can be experienced on South Street and in the Old City, and music fans shouldn't miss the Avenue of the Arts in City Center, home to the Philadelphia Opera and Orchestra as well as many excellent restaurants.
