The website's press room has lots of tips and useful information for visitors. An Oct. 6 press release lists eight new breweries and brewpubs that will open soon in the region. An Oct. 17 release says the Greater Philadelphia Tourism Marketing Corporation is the first destination to launch a major program on Foodspotting, a website and mobile platform dedicated to helping people find and share good food, by adding seven new guides to foodspotting.com/visitphilly.
