Philadelphia – Our July 2021 Feature
After celebrating Independence Day earlier this month, we couldn’t pass up July’s City Snapshot without giving a warm shout-out to the city that started it all, Philadelphia! Home of the Declaration of Independence and the notorious meeting place of our Founding Fathers, we’re dedicating this month’s post to a city filled with astounding art, culture, cuisine, and history. And, quite frankly, any city with this much life is bound to be the perfect event destination.
With literally everything you could possibly want from a major metropolitan city, Philadelphia still maintains its small-town feel and ranks among the top 4 walkable cities in the United States. So, whether you’re hosting a hybrid or an entirely in-person event, everyone physically attending will be able to effortlessly explore the surrounding neighborhoods, attractions, and restaurants. Something, we’ve all been dying to start doing again now that COVID is slowly weaning.
This brings us to our next point! If you’re wondering about Philly’s status, it’s officially open. The city has ended all Safer at Home restrictions, including capacity and density limits, physical distancing guidelines, as well as all indoor and outdoor mask requirements. As always, the non-vaccinated are still encouraged to wear masks, per CDC recommendations.
Finally, as if the city couldn’t get any better, the Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) serves the region with 25 airlines and 450 daily nonstop departures to 138 destinations in the U.S. and around the world. For those arriving by air, it’s a brief 20-minute ride to the center of town.
Enough hyping up this scenic destination, here’s the sought-after list of our five fave corporate event venues in Philadelphia!
