Re: Weekend Trip to Philly.. advice/ suggestions

  • If you're into history, Independence Hall is a must-see. If you like art or architecture, check out the Philadelphia Museum of Art. After that, you can walk down Kelly Drive, which is really pretty when it's nice out. The Reading Terminal Market is a great place to walk through and grab lunch or snacks. If you want to say you tried a traditional Philly cheesesteak, hit up Pat's, Geno's or Jim's.

    I'm sure other girls will have many more/better ideas, but that's a start.

  • If your hotel budget is large-ish, I hear the Sofitel is out of this world.

     Historical stuff is a must-do - Liberty Bell and Independence Hall are right near each other and are both free.  National Constitution Center is also right there and makes a nice day.  You can also walk around the same area to see Ben Franklin's grave, Betsy Ross House, and lots of other landmarks.  South Street is also walkable and you can grab a cheesesteak from Jim's for lunch without much etra effort :)

     The museums are also all within walking distance form each other - the art museum is great, and even for adults I love the Franklin Institute.  You could also squeeze in the Rodin and/or Eastern State Penitentiary depending on how much time you like to spend at each place. 

     Reading Terminal Market is also a must-do for lunch.  I recommend mac and cheese at Delilah's and some Basset's ice cream for dessert.  

  • depending on when your coming, head to a Phillies game!
  • Thank you!!! great ideas! much appreciated!

  • If you can give your (hotel) budget and interests, I'm sure we can make more recommendations, including restaurants if you like.

    Yeah that's right my name's Yauch!
  • Hotel Palomar is also very nice.

    Definitely do Old City/historic area one morning/afternoon...start at the visitors center, then do the liberty bell and the constitution center. Then lunch at Reading Terminal Market.
