Philadelphia County and Philadelphia City are often used interchangeably. That is because the city of Philadelphia represents the only municipality in Philadelphia County. As the largest city in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia combines the excitement of a major metropolis with the warmth of a friendly small town. Philadelphia embodies a network of neighborhoods whose people and landscapes vary both within and between the localities. Variety also extends into the regions’ schooling options. The large collection of private, parochial, and charter schools in Philadelphia give residents numerous choices when considering educational options. There’s no shortage of culture in this town — the Philadelphia Museum of Art contains one of the largest collections of art in America. And, history echoes within the city where the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were written.
