World's Most Underrated Cities

Sure, popular cities have their place. But if you like exploring, there's interesting stuff in the world's most underrated cities.

Philadelphia

12 of 25

Home of the hoagie and the Liberty Bell, Philly has come a long way since the moment screen icon Rocky Balboa trained on the steps of the Philadelphia Art Museum (he’s still there, by the way, cast in bronze). No longer the underdog, our nation’s first capital is attracting more than just students on field trips. One reason is its melting-pot food scene, invigorated by chefs such as Jose Garces, who runs eight Latin-inspired eateries, from Amada to Tinto; Marc Vetri, who helms Italian eateries Vetri, Osteria, and Amis; and Adan Saavedra, who serves Mexican haute cuisine at Paloma.

Don’t Miss: Visiting The Franklin Institute, where the hands-on science exhibits and IMAX theater make learning fun for kids.
