Philly Fun

This weekend my roommates and I randomly decided to take a little day trip up to Philadelphia and play tourists. We've been wanting to go explore for a while, and since it's only two and a half hours away why not! I've never been, but I can tell you already I'm dying to go back! We had such a great time!


Since Friday was flag day there was tons of Americana fun to be had.  We started off at Love park then made our way down market street towards Independence Hall. We checked out Reading Market for Philly Cheesesteaks and some Amish treats. Since we were only there for the day we decided to be cool and hop on one of those tourists buses. Living in DC I'm often annoyed by the swarms of tourists flowing in and out of my city, so it was a little strange being on the other side. I'm so glad we did it though. We were able to save our feet and walk around the cool neighborhoods in town. 



We couldn't have asked for better weather! It was 80 degrees, no humidity and absolutely gorgeous. 


We wrapped up our day with a few colonial beers (which were awesome btw) and some gelato, then hopped back in the car and headed south to DC. If you need a weekend getaway I'd can't recommend Philly enough!

I went to Philly for the first time for a conference this past fall. Unfortunately I didn't get to see too much of the city, but I LOVED the terminal market.
