Based off of Philly attractions that received press coverage earlier this year, Visit Philadelphia has created a new itinerary for visitors and residents alike.

The itinerary, titled “22 Philadelphia Attractions Making Headlines in 2015,” features places that were curated from publications such as The New York Times with their “52 Place to Go in 2015” list (in which Phillly was the highest-ranked U.S. city at No. 3) and articles from Condé Nast Traveler and Travel + Leisure.

Highlights include Spruce Street Harbor Park, Abe Fisher restaurant, Schuylkill Banks Boardwalk, Reading Terminal Market and more. The map presents descriptions of each spot and allows users to create their own Google map of the attractions they wish to see.

“Word-of-mouth and third-party endorsements are incredibly important to travelers,” says Meryl Levitz, president and CEO of VISIT PHILADELPHIA. “We know that travelers trust the recommendations from these national publications, so we’re promoting these suggestions—we agree with them, after all.”

Located on the River Walk, the Hyatt Regency San Antonio Riverwalk has completed its $38 million renovation just in time for its 40thanniversary. The renovation broke ground in December 2021. The hotel’s 602 guestrooms and 28 suites were redesigned to reflect an upscale urban experience.  

 

If you’ve hosted meetings at the Javits Center or other venues in Manhattan, you know that there’s more than enough to do in the borough to easily keep attendees busy for days.

 

Pittsburgh may be known as The Steel City, but it has plenty of greenery, too, and opportunities for groups attending meetings here to get out in nature. The Pittsburgh CVB, which has the tagline “Only in Pittsburgh,” has proudly shared the news that the Great Allegany Passage was named a winner in the 2022 USA Today “10Best Readers’ Choice” travel award contest for “best recreational trail.”
