Check out Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell in Old City (pretty
sure they are off 8th Street exit of Vine Street Expressway I676). Great
piece of history. Also, they do tours of City Hall (Broad and Market
Streets). If you do that, make sure you go up the tower, you can stand on
an observation area just below the statue of William Penn. It used to be
the tallest building in the city, but even now it is a great view. Can't
think of any specifics, but all Philly food is awesome. See if you can stop
by Reading Terminal near City Hall (not a terminal, a really cool building
full of many food vendors). If you are so inclined, a bit west of the city
is the King of Prussia mall which is the largest mall east of the
Mississippi (I think). If you like cool architecture and classical music,
the Kimmel Center is on Broad and Spruce. It has a large glass arch roof,
and inside that is the music hall which has a lot of interesting features
(check out their website). There is probably a lot more to see but I
haven't spent as much time in the city as I would like so that is all I can
think of.
