Summer is just around the corner, and that means it's time to celebrate and book your next sunshine-filled vacation.

So you're not overwhelmed by choices on where to go and what to see, Travel + Leisure has launched its Summer Shortlist, which features our must-see cities and towns across the U.S. this season. Next on the list is Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

In the City of Brotherly Love, travelers can sunbathe in the popular pop-up gardens and parks, check out the diverse art scene (running up the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art like Rocky is a given), and feast on the city’s best Italian food at the South 9th Street Italian Market.

But a trip to Philly wouldn’t be complete without visiting some of the country’s most historically significant sites, including the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall. And for those seeking the picture-perfect photo opportunity, make sure you carve out time to walk down Schuylkill Banks Boardwalk for unforgettable views of the city’s skyline.
