Overview Philadelphia, also called Philly or The City of Brotherly Love, is the largest city in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the county seat of Philadelphia County. It serves as the commercial, cultural, and educational center of the Delaware Valley. The metropolis has transformed from being a manufacturing powerhouse to an information and service-based economy. Financial activities account for the largest sector of the metro economy, and it runs one of the largest health education and research centers in the United States.
Population 1,526,006 (as of the 2010 U.S. Census)
Airport Two airports serve Philadelphia: the Philadelphia International Airport (PHL), located in Philadelphia / Tinicum Township and at the base of the southern boundary of the city. This airport has scheduled domestic and international air services. The Northeast Philadelphia Airport (PNE), a general aviation reliever airport located in the northeastern part of the city. It serves general and corporate aviation.
Climate Under the Köppen climate classification, Philadelphia falls in the northern periphery of the humid subtropical climate zone. Summers are typically hot and muggy, fall and spring are generally mild, and winter is cold. Snowfall is variable with the average annual snowfall of 19.3 in (49.0 cm). Precipitation is generally spread throughout the year, with eight to twelve wet days per month.
Best Season For a white winter, December through February is the best times to visit Philadelphia. All of the city’s main attractions remain open throughout the winter, which, when coupled with thinned crowds, make a strong argument for visiting Philadelphia during the winter months—be sure to bring your mittens.

Pros Philadelphia welcomes over two million visitors in 2010 with its historical attraction, the Liberty Bell. The Delaware Valley contains the headquarters of thirteen Fortune 500 corporations, five of which are in Philadelphia proper. The city is home to the Philadelphia Stock Exchange, including cable television and internet provider Comcast, insurance companies Colonial Penn, CIGNA and Lincoln Financial Group, energy company Sunoco, food services company Aramark and Crown Holdings Incorporated, chemical makers Rohm and Haas Company and FMC Corporation, pharmaceutical companies Wyeth and GlaxoSmithKline, Boeing Rotorcraft Systems, and automotive parts retailer Pep Boys. Early in the 20th Century, it was also home to the pioneering brass era automobile company Biddle. The city is also the nation's fourth-largest consumer media market, as ranked by the Nielsen Media Research.
Cons In June, 2011, Philadelphia was named the 2nd most Dirtiest City in America by Travel and Leisure's readership, for a variety of ways, including litter, air pollution, and taste of local tap water. Its traffic is often congested because of so many vehicles and activities around the city.
