I was born and raised in the Philadelphia area, then moved to DC for graduate school. I lived in the DC area for 25 years. They are both great cities. If you're interested in American history you can't go wrong with either one. Philadelphia has some great museums- Art Museum, Rodin museum, Natural History, Franklin Institute Science Museum, U of Penn Archaeology and Anthropology, and the oldest zoo in the country. Plenty of fun nightlife.

DC has much of the same- the Smithsonian is fantastic, and free. Both cities have a lot of green spaces and are not that difficult to get around (compared to NY anyway).

As for the Flyers vs the Caps, like others have said, the Flyers will probably always be competitive. The Caps, not so much. The flip side of that is that although they've been doing well attendance wise recently, that will probably change at some point and tickets will be easy to come by.
