PHILADELPHIA – Philadelphia is full of great neighborhoods, restaurants, sites, and much more. So it's no surprise that a new study lists it as one of the best places for business travelers to visit.

TravelBank's new study looks at the "bleisure," a combination of "business" and "leisure," ratings of various United States cities.

The study examined average hotel rates, walkability, entertainment, and food.

With those factors at play, Philadelphia was ranked No. 4 on the list.

Here's what TravelBank has to say about Philly:

Philadelphia comes in as the fourth best destination for bleisure travel for good reason. Hotel rooms won’t set you back too much, at $260 a night, which is especially nice when you decide to tack on a few extra days to your business trip.And for those getting their exploration done between meetings, Philly has a great walkability score. You can take care of business and soak in some national history all in the same day. Philadelphia may not have as many restaurants as other cities, but what they lack in variety they certainly make up for in local must-try favorites, like the Philly cheesesteak.

The average hotel rate is $263 a night, and the city earned scores of 79 in walkability, 46 for entertainment, and 55 for restaurants.

New York, Chicago, and San Francisco came in first, second, and third. Los Angeles, Seattle, and Denver rounded out the bottom three in fifth, sixth, and seventh.
