I was fortunate enough to have not one, but two long Philadelphia layovers this month. There was so much to see and do, so much history to take in that I feel I only got a sliver of it done.
Nonetheless, this is a beautiful city and here’s what I was able to accomplish:
First up was the liberty bell. I’ve been to Philly before so I didn’t feel the need to go inside to get a look at the liberty bell but I still wanted to take a glance. It’s located in the independence national historic park. If you’re looking at the liberty bell from the front, behind it is a clear view of independence all.
Then when you’re feeling hungry, you need to go to Reading terminal market to fill all of your cravings.
Old city coffee, Beiler’s, By George, and Iovine juice are my favorites thus far.
There’s so much to see and do that I’m hoping I’ll get another long layover so I can continue my adventuring of this wonderful city.
