Philadelphia, Pennsylvania – The city that hosted the Second Continental Congress. That group of men authored and published the Declaration of Independence, announcing that the 13 colonies were officially becoming independent states and leaving the British Empire. Led by the likes of John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, the Declaration was adopted on July 4th, 1776, and gave us one of the most important sentences in the history of human rights:
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”
To celebrate this momentous day, Americans go out to the ballpark, have barbeques in their backyard, and shoot off fireworks. We at Stadium Journey want to commemorate Independence Day this year by celebrating the city where it all happened: Philadelphia.
Here are the complete rankings of the stadiums and teams that we have visited in Philadelphia sponsored by our friends at Aphillyated. Check out their line of Philly-inspired apparel.
