Federal Donuts is so good, you’ll never eat at Dunkin Donuts again: Scoring a donut here is a feat in and of itself — there are a limited amount made per day, and if you come too late, they’ll all be gone. But if you do nab one, you’ll get to try the yummiest donuts you’ve ever had in flavors like sea salt and chocolate, sticky bun, cookies and cream, gingerbread, strawberry lavender, vanilla spice and “crumberry.”
The Philadelphia Eagles have the best fight song of any football team: Redskins fans might disagree. But there’s nothing to get you revved up like hearing 67,000 people sing “Fly, Eagles, Fly” in one spirited, drunken chorus.
Some of the best restauranteurs in the world have set up shop in Philadelphia: Stephen Starr was named “Restauranteur of the Year.” Jose Garces is one of only eight chefs in the country to hold the title of Iron Chef. Marc Vetri is a James Beard Award winner. Between these big names and numerous other world-class chefs, Philly’s restaurant scene is bursting with talent and ingenuity. (Don’t believe us?
