Philadelphia is one of America's unsung heroes. The one-time capital is too often overlooked in favour of its big-shot neighbours, Washington DC and New York City. But if you take some time to explore, you'll discover a city that lives and breathes beautiful art, great music and delicious food.

Our pick of the week, this video by film-maker Cory J Popp perfectly captures Philadelphia's diversity and colour as the city breaks into bloom.

"As a filmmaker, the changing of seasons always brings incredible emotion and energy", he says, "and I cannot wait to capture it". "After 5 months of cold, brutal weather, Philadelphia is erupting with spring energy."
