As the birthplace of our nation's democracy, there's plenty of history in Philadelphia, along with museums, festivals, and restaurants. Located just hours from New York City, Washington, D.C., and Baltimore, Philadelphia boasts an affordable cost of living. For all Philadelphia has to offer, the statistics around education can look bleak.
