Philadelphia Private Jet Charter Flights and Jet Hire
Philadelphia, the “City of Brotherly Love”, is aptly named. With a wide variety of both historical and intriguing attractions, you're sure to fall in love with this city that is less than 125 miles from either New York City or Washington, D.C. Summer is considered, by most, to be the best time to visit Philadelphia. For the budget conscious, the spring and fall are the times when you’ll find private jet flights to Philadelphia. The weather also cools down a bit during these periods, but is comfortable enough for long strolls throughout the city.
Currently the 26th-busiest airport on the planet, Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) is owned and managed by the City of Philadelphia itself and just 7 miles southwest of the downtown district, next to the Delaware River and the Delaware Expressway (I-95).

What to do
While Philadelphia is a gorgeous city, the main reason that most people visit is its vast historical significance. Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell might be the most famous places, but the city does have a wide variety of lesser-known attractions that are worth a visit.
University of Pennsylvania Museum of Anthropology and Archaeology. Mummies, the worlds third largest sphinx and one of the world’s largest unsupported masonry domes are just a few of the features in this amazing museum.
Fairmount Park where 8,000 acres of trees in downtown Philadelphia say welcome to the largest urban park in the United States. If you want to see it all, hop on the Schuylkill River Trail at the intersection of Locust Street and the Schuylkill River and start walking.
The Franklin Institute, where interactive displays, such as a giant human heart, are plentiful at this museum, but despite its educational theme, it's not boring. Exhibits like the Train Factory and the Sports Challenge will force you to have fun while you learn.
If you're in search of something creepy, visit the house that Edgar Allen Poe wrote "The Fall of the House of Usher" and "The Masque of the Red Death" in. Peeling paint and unfurnished rooms provide a haunting look at the dark side of this famous authors life.
Where to eat
Working the mind at the Franklin Institute and being scared out of your wits in Poes old house will certainly help you work up an appetite. Quell your hunger at any of Philadelphia's dining establishments.
