FTD World Cup 2019 was held at the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society’s Philadelphia Flower Show from March 1-3, 2019. The flower show is a top destination and “must experience” horticultural event, attracting 250,000 visitors annually to the Pennsylvania Convention Center, a showcase of excellence that dates back to 1829.
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania’s largest city, is notable for its rich history, on display at the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall (where the Declaration of Independence and Constitution were signed) and other American Revolutionary sites. Also iconic are the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, immortalized by actor Sylvester Stallone’s triumphant run in the film “Rocky.”
Philadelphia, or “Philly” as it’s affectionately known, has all of the glamour of New York City and Washington, DC, while still retaining small-town charm. Because the city’s oldest buildings are so well-preserved, America’s early history and role in building democracy are sometimes more accessible here than in the capital. Moreover, it’s a beautiful place that is easy and rewarding to explore, its streets dotted with gracious squares and linked by cobbled alleys.
