Seeing Philadelphia with Jessica

We spent some time in Philadelphia with Jessica this past week, visiting the historic part of the city where the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall etc are and at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, before dropping her off at the airport for her flight home. The weather was pretty cold on our museum day, so it was great to be inside seeing some of the world's great art. Here's a sampling of what we saw and did.

Thanks for the kind words. We do enjoy Philadelphia. This was our daughter's first visit and she said she is "a little in love with Philadelphia"
Any suggestions where to take her next time?

You visited Historic Philadelphia and the Philadelphia Museum of Art -- that's a great start!

Next I would encourage wandering the galleries and shops in Old City. Or seeing the bizarre and wonderful Magic Gardens on South Street. The Mutter Museum (of medical oddities) is pretty fascinating as well.

We have a ton of information on our site www.gophila.com and up-to-the-minute ideas on our blog, www.uwishunu.com.

Have fun!
