FODOR’S TRAVEL RELEASES UPDATED GUIDEBOOK TO PHILADELPHIA

The experts at Fodor’s help travelers explore the City of Brotherly Love

NEW YORK, NY – Fodor’s Travel, the leading name in travel guides for 80 years, introduces its updated guidebook to Philadelphia.  It may be one of the oldest cities in the country—UNESCO named Philadelphia the first World Heritage City in the United States—but an ongoing food renaissance and cultural revival is sweeping the city and Fodor’s Philadelphia (on sale May 24, 2016) captures the City of Brotherly Love's hottest new restaurants, hotels, events, and more.

Philadelphia’s resurgence is attracting national attention and tourism numbers are strong – in 2014, the city received almost 40 million visitors and overnight visitors to the city have grown 90% in the past 10 years. The Democratic National Convention, taking place in Philadelphia this July, will usher in a new wave of visitors and an even greater renewal of interest in this historic city.

Written by local experts, Fodor’s Philadelphia covers the local food culture in detail, from cozy BYOs to legendary farmers' markets to the famed Philly cheesesteaks, along with helpful information on touring the famous Historic Area sights. The guide also includes a helpful chapter on the best side trips from Philadelphia.

With so much to see and do, Philadelphia was listed as a must-see destination on this year’s Fodor’s Go List, which highlights 25 can’t-miss spots around the world that should be on every traveler's radar in 2016.
