As the first capital of the United States, Philadelphia is full of history. But despite its starring role in the American Revolution, this is a friendly, unpretentious city with a low cost of living. Philadelphia is happy to be famous for great sandwiches as well as great art, and is as much the home of boxing movie legend Rocky Balboa as Founding Father Alexander Hamilton.
