Philadelphia, the largest city in the state of Pennsylvania and the sixth largest city overall, is a vibrant city with both modern infrastructure and old-world charm. Philadelphia is famous for its lengthy history, particularly for serving as the setting for the famous U.S. Declaration of Independence phrase "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." More recently, Sylvester Stallone's triumphant run in the movie "Rocky" has immortalized Philadelphia. As more immigrants arrived in the 19th century, first from Europe and subsequently from the South, the city developed into an important railroad and industrial center for the country. Philadelphia's neighborhoods continued to thrive and gentrify in the 20th century. Numerous tourists are drawn to the area because of its history; the Independence Mall alone sees over five million visitors annually.
