Few cities in the United States can boast the history of Philadelphia. From 1800 to 1830, Philly was the nation's largest city, and it played an enormous role in early American life. Visitors should see The Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, Betsy Ross House, and National Constitution Center. Sustain your historical sightseeing with what else? - a Philly cheesesteak sandwich. Then hit the links, where golf courses are scattered thick across the rolling countryside. Head over to New Jersey to treat yourself with a round at Trump National - Philadelphia (Pine Hill). Or jaunt across the river to Delaware to visit Back Creek Golf Club (Middletown). In Pennsylvania proper, Glen Mills Golf Course (Glen Mills) has some votes as the best public course in eastern Pennsylvania, but Rees Jones's Broad Run Golfer's Club (West Chester) gives it a run for its money. And of course, if you can figure out how to get on it, you should definitely play the historic U.S. Open venue, Marion Golf Club in Ardmore.
