Broad Street is one of the earliest planned streets in the USA, developed in 1681. The Broad Street district is located in Center City, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Philadelphia was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.
The city of Philadelphia is the birthplace of the United States and the US Constitution and home of the Liberty Bell.
Broad Street is a cultural mecca and has come to be called the Avenue of Arts. Not only is it home to the Academy of Music, Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Kimmel Center , and Academy of Fine arts, but it includes many prestigious concert halls such as Arden Theatre Company, Independence Hall, the place where both the Declaration of Independence and US Constitution were signed, the Liberty Bell Center. It is at the heart of many major intersections including Cheltenham Avenue, Roosevelt Boulevard, Vine Street Expressway, Schuylkill Expressway, and Interstate 95.
The location of the conference has many iconic sights including “AA” lights all along the 12.5 mile street to represent “Avenue of the Arts” and the 50 states of the United States lining the street due to Broad Street’s alternative name of “Avenue of the States” as well as the “Liberty Bell.”

Foods to Try:
It may not be the healthiest of dishes, but every visitor of Philly has to try the infamous philly cheesesteak. Some top picks include “John’s Roasts Porks” 4 Snyder Avenue, (215) 463-1951 and “Tony Luke’s” 39 E. Oregon Avenue. (215) 551-5725 but there are so many great eateries to choose from to stop for this great indulgence.
Other foods to try include hoagies-italian rolls, Philadelphia creamcheese, and the soft pretzel.
Unique alterations to English language

Have a wonderful time in Philadelphia!
