Attraction:

Kelly Drive/Fairmount Park - Attraction -

Kelly Drive/Fairmount Park

"A great spot to jog or bike in Philadelphia. If you travel along Kelly Drive, following the river north (away from downtown) and cross over at Girard Avenue and then follow the river back, it is a 3.5 mile loop. If you follow the river to Strawberry Mansion Drive, it is 8 miles."

With seven department stores alone and over 400 other retail stores, there's something for everyone. Maybe the best kept secret is the Nordstrom Rack located just around the corner from the mall complex. Don't forget, Pennsylvania has tax free shopping on shoes and clothing."

"Opened July 4, 2003, on Philadelphia's redesigned Independence Mall, the National Constitution Center is the first museum in the world devoted to the United States Constitution. While same-day tickets are usually available, it's a good idea to buy tickets in advance, and arrive 20 minutes early for the timed theater shows that welcome visitors twice each hour. Just a block away, (at a new glass pavilion on 5th and Market) sits the famous Liberty Bell. The famous bell "proclaimed liberty throughout the land" as the Declaration of Independence was read aloud to the citizens."

It is one of the largest museums in the country and houses more than a quarter million objects of art. It is renowned for its special events. In July there are, among others, exhibitions featuring Matisse, photographs of early 20th century skyscrapers, and a jewelry and metalwork display. Don't forget to run those steps, though!"

"Located kitty corner from Pat's King of Steaks, Geno's is the "young upstart" having started selling steak sandwiches in the 1950s instead of the 1930s. Geno's claim to fame is having added the cheese to Philadelphia's famous cheesesteak sandwiches. Like Pat's, Geno's has a separate window/line for drinks and fries. Try both and you can decide which is better."

Philly Soft Pretzel Factory Inc

Philadelphia, PA, United States

"The only food more "Philly" than the cheesesteak is the soft pretzel. Not your rounded, NY style, Auntie Anne-esque pretzel, these are like a blocked number 8, crusty on the outside and chewy on the inside. There's nothing wrong with a street pretzel, but if you're close to the Philly Soft Pretzel Factory, drop by for a taste."
