Travel to America's original capital, Philadelphia, on Historic Route 1. Within the city, as well as to and from, you can treat yourself to a number of interesting attractions.

Meet Big Bird, Elmo, and Cookie Monster at Sesame Place, the nation's only theme park based on the award-winning television show "Sesame Street." Whether you're traveling with kids or are a kid at heart, it's hard not to love the water slides, theme park rides, and live stage shows. Go buggy at the Philadelphia Insectarium, the largest insect museum in the nation. Don't be freaked out by cockroaches, bees, spiders, and other creepy-crawlies. See the unusual and quirky at the Christian Sanderson Museum — one man's eight-room personal collection of weird artifacts and memorabilia. And, of course, visit well-known Philly sites such as the Rocky Steps, the Liberty Bell, and City Center.
