Great App

As a Philly local I can say this is a very accurate depiction of Philadelphia. It goes over many major landmarks. All the important historical and cultural locations are included. Discussed in detail are things like the Rocky steps and matching statue below them. Not only am I a native I also very much enjoy the culture such as the Rocky movie series. Philadelphia is such a wonderful city that everyone should want to experience. Whther you are a local looking to discover the little hidden gems in your honetown or a tourist looking for wondrous sights, this app is essential.
