Famous publication Condé Nast Traveler has named the City of Brotherly Love as one of the top destinations for 2021.
We’ve made it to Condé Nast Traveler’s Gold List, Philadelphians! The famed travel publication recently released its 2021 Gold List containing their favorite hotels, resorts and travel destinations for the incoming year. Philadelphia was ranked as a top destination on the exclusive list which also features exotic, far-flung locales like Waiheke Island in New Zeland and Rome.
Our beloved city received a glowing review by CN Traveler’s associate editor, Betsy Blumenthal, which praised Philadelphia for its rich culinary scene, excellent local vendors and its historic legacy.
“There’s really something special about Philadelphia, about the way it doesn’t care for pretense or about what anyone else thinks of it,” reads Blumenthal entry. ” I think about the Italian Market and its small world of vendors, about the mosaics glinting in the sun, the digestible chaos of Chinatown, the essential, if flawed, sense of American history, the beautiful, dilapidated row houses that speak to the promise of equality we haven’t yet reached as a country.”

If traveling internationally still remains challenging for you in 2021, at least you know you won’t have to venture far to enjoy some of the world’s best experiences! You can just get to know your hometown of Philly better or, if you feel like venturing out, you can also check out our neighboring city of Washington D.C. The Nation’s Capital also came out on top of CN Traveler’s Gold List and has plenty of awesome things to discover.
