Many cool tourist attractions. Of course Liberty Bell and Constitution Center are must visit places. Loved Reading Market for local good vibe. For young kids, Please Touch Museum is wonderful.

This is one of our favorite cities. It has a little or lots of everything that a city should have.

It really is always sunny in Philadelphia. Even in a dreary foggy day, Philadelphia is bright. Philadelphia has a great day time feel as far as getting all of your walking and exploring done. But the night life is very blah. Lots of sports bars filled with testosterone filled football fans who can't handle a little bit of booze. But that's just inner city. Outside the city is a real treat. It almost feels like a nice walk through a small town in a Thomas Kinkade painting (we visited right after the snow storm) I happened to stumble across a really cool antique thrift shop and a HUGE music store which specializes in vinyl. I thoroughly enjoyed Philadelphia. So much that I began to research living expenses within the housing market!!
