Philadelphia, the City of Brotherly Love – famous for Breyers ice cream, Tastykake and, of course, Philly cheesesteaks – is located approximately two hours south of New York City and two and a half hours north of Washington, D.C. It’s a great place to begin your tour of the Northeast states.
Best deal going is the Chinatown bus network. Go to New York City for $20.00 round trip! Check out www.2000coach.com for current prices.
Philly’s Old City is a great place for an evening pub crawl or daytime stroll, Delaware Avenue is for the clubbers, South Street and the Italian Market on 9th Street are great for eclectic goods and great food, and Logan Circle has many museums to entertain your mind. Fairmont Park boosts one of the largest urban parks in the states at 9,200 acres, and the Philadelphia Zoo is a great place to bring the kids.
There’s so much to do in Philly besides seeing the Phillies win another year — you won’t be disappointed. Be sure to run up the stairs a la Rocky I at the Museum of Art, throw your paws in the air and yell, “Yo, Adrian!”
