Philadelphia

Why now: The City of Brotherly Love is creeping out from the shadows of nearby Washington and New York with a fast-growing population that's introduced craft breweries, high-end restaurants, and new green spaces. The main reason to visit in 2017, however, is to view the new Museum of the American Revolution.

What to see: This massive museum in the historic heart of Philadelphia will explore the American Revolution by showcasing its distinguished collection of objects, artifacts, and manuscripts, including the tent George Washington used as his wartime command center. History buffs from across the nation are expected to make a pilgrimage here once it opens on April 19.
