The United States of America (USA) is the third largest country by geographic size on Earth. It is also our home. The second most visited country in the world, it’s a place we have traveled extensively, but there’s always more to see.

Delving into US history is also a favorite for us, made that much easier by the fact that we live in Philadelphia, the place where the US Constitution and the Declaration of Independence were signed.
