I had a great time, I’d recommend going to Ms. Tootsies for some great soul food.

Had my first cheese steak, must say it was excellent. Plenty of history, good beer, lots to do. Liberty bell, Rocky Statue and independence hall are a must. Liked it!

I recommend taking advantage of the PHLASH bus. If you take the train into the city from the airport, you have to get a SEPTA key card. You then use that key card to ride the PHLASH bus for free.


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.
