Democratic National Convention Visitors: Welcome to Philadelphia

By: Governor Tom Wolf

July 19, 2016

To all visitors to Philadelphia for next week’s Democratic National Convention festivities: welcome to our state and our nation’s city of brotherly love.

Governor Tom Wolf welcomes Democratic National Convention visitors to Philadelphia:

Pennsylvania is historically a place of welcome. The commonwealth was founded by William Penn as a refuge for people of different faiths, different nationalities, and different opinions and in that spirit we welcome you all.

Philadelphia is home to many experiences and attractions. While you’re here, stop by Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell or visit the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Grab lunch at the Reading Terminal Market, or my favorite hot dog stand on Sansom and Broad, or any of Philadelphia’s diverse and delicious dining options. Take a walk on the Schuylkill River Trail and see Boathouse Row, or visit Spruce Street Harbor Park to relax and enjoy the evening.

Be sure to check out to discover all the wonderful things our city and our state have to offer.
