There's no doubt that when you visit Philadelphia from Chicago you're going to get a good dose of American history and patriotism. America's first capital, Benjamin Franklin's home and the site where both the Declaration of Independence and US Constitution were signed, Philadelphia will leave an impression on you.
Philadelphia is drive-able, so when you land at Philadelphia International Airport (PHL), feel free to rent a car. While you're exploring central landmarks like the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, of course, you'll be on foot. When you're ready to visit outlying attractions, though, a car will come in handy. Expect to navigate through many one way streets, but you can easily avoid getting lost by investing in a good road map or opting for the in-car GPS system.
Nonstop flights from O'Hare International Airport (ORD) to PHL have a flight time of two hours. If you opt for a flight with transfers, expect a total travel time of four to five hours. Philadelphia is one of the most visited cities in the United States with good reason, especially on America's birthday, July 4. Diverse neighborhoods, a thriving restaurant and nightlife scene, and a collection of public art have contributed to the city's modernization while retaining its historic roots.
