I know thereís probably been other threads about these cities, but Iím not interested in living in them. I just want to know which out of two I should go back too and visit for 3 nights or so. Iím really interested in American History, Architecture, and museums. I been to both cities once and loved them, but I canít decide which one I should go back too. I know they both also had great neighborhoods to see.

3 nights? You might be able to squeeze both in if you don't mind 5-6 hours of your life being gone.

Which do you like best, Italian food or seafood? Historically, both are important, as PA and MA were important colonies, politically, socially and economically.

I'm completely in agreement with all those who labeled Boston and Philadelphia great cities. And I fully understand their being conflated as these two, more than any other, represent that colonial era coming of age and coming into its own leading to the revolution and the new nation era.

From Faneuil Hall and Paul Revere's house in Boston to Philadelphia's Independence Hall and Liberty Bell, the two are steeped in history.

Which one would I give the nod to (and it is a slight nod as they are close in what they offer): Boston. Why? It seems to me that history has "stuck" more in Boston than in Philly. Philadelphia grew far larger than Boston, so I do think that Boston is closer to its "roots".
