Philadelphia, the birthplace of the United States, is known for Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, Cheesesteaks, and its diehard sports fans (Go Eagles!). When visiting Philly, you must check a few things off your bucket list. You’ve got to: visit the “Love Sculpture”, snap a picture of the Liberty Bell, dig into an authentic cheesesteak: (Jim’s or Pat’s), run up the “Rocky Steps” (or at least get a photo), taste a soft pretzel (a delicacy), and enjoy the beauty of the Delaware River. Once undeveloped, the river waterfront area has begun to boom thanks to exciting attractions, parks, and events throughout the year. Thinking about hosting an event in the City of Brotherly Love but just not sure where. Look no further, the beautiful Delaware River is calling you to get creative and get your team out of the typical event space, and get them out on the water, or as natives say “the wooder”, for a venue like no other. Throw in amazing views of the Benjamin Franklin Bridge, and Philly’s historic waterfront, chef-prepared cuisine, full-bar service, and lively entertainment and you have all the elements that you need for a successful networking event in Philadelphia.
