Philadelphia ranks with nine other cities on what Forbes calls “a new list of must-see cities,” comprised of places “that we never would have given a second glance.”
No matter how shady the backhanded compliment, travel experts nonetheless have positive things to say about Philly, especially Fishtown. Forbes also notes the Barnes Foundation and upscale boutique Vestige, as well as restaurants Wm. Mulherin’s Sons and Royal Boucherie, as noteworthy draws. Forbes is really jazzed about the new Four Seasons headed for the Comcast Center, too.
Philadelphia isn’t the only Pennsylvania city to join the list. Forbes also gave a shoutout to our neighbors in Lancaster (though it describes it instead as “just three hours from New York City” –whatever). The region known best for its large Amish population is described as a “newly hip Victorian city” with repurposed warehouses playing host to some thriving businesses and restaurants.
Other "cool" cities according to Forbes include Louisville; Detroit; Savannah; Portland, Maine, Columbus, Indiana; Richmond, Virginia; Baltimore; and San Antonio.
