Scandal, Sex & The (Colonial) City In 18th-Century Philadelphia
Historic Philadelphia Sites Recount Founding Fathers' & Mothers’ Sinful Shenanigans
Philadelphia is the birthplace of the United States. It’s where the Declaration of Independence was written and where the U.S. Constitution was signed. Philadelphia's Historic District has many more tales to tell. The 18th-century metropolis was a hotbed of extramarital affairs, excommunications, elopements and blowout bashes—all resulting in...
Philadelphia County: Manayunk
On the list of Philadelphia’s quirkily named geographic landmarks, Manayunk is right up there. This Native American word, meaning “where we to go drink,” references the neighborhood’s location next to the Schuylkill River. While the river helped shape Manayunk’s identity, so do the hills (more on those to come). Yet...
Philadelphia County: Mt. Airy
Sometimes a name so perfectly defines a neighborhood that it creates a pretty accurate mental image. That’s Mt. Airy. Gently rising from the banks of the Wissahickon Creek, Mt.

Montgomery County: Ardmore
As the largest and most diverse town on the ritzy Main Line stretch of suburbs, Ardmore has a distinctly double character: It’s residential yet urban, independent yet central, historic yet forward-facing. Even the community itself straddles two counties (Ardmore is seated in Montgomery County, while South Ardmore is in Delaware...
Montgomery County: Ambler
The definition of a small town, Ambler covers less than one square mile. Despite its diminutive size, it’s amazingly complete, with a host of shops, restaurants, bars and special events that keep the streets bustling. Unassuming and unpretentious, Ambler has retained an historic gentility and independent spirit that are the...
Delaware County: Wayne
In 1940, movie director George Cukor set his Oscar-winning film The Philadelphia Story in the prosperous enclave of Wayne, selecting it to depict high-society America.

Delaware County: Media
At less than one square mile, Media may be compact, but the county seat of Delaware County, located 12 miles southwest of Philadelphia, is quite multi-faceted.
