Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

This is a guest article written by an anonymous writer.

We traveled to Philadelphia on a family trip for 2 days. It was one of the most historic cities I have ever been to.

We flew to Harrisburg and drove to Philadelphia, but you can also fly directly to Philadelphia. First we checked into Marriott Residence Inn Philadelphia on One East Square. The average cost is about $180.00.

You can try any restaurant by asking the locals, but since we had spare time, we traveled to the Novelty Restaurant. They have lots of items to choose from, all ranging from around $20.00. I tried the Grilled Angus Ribeye, with Pine Nuts, Shallots, Potato Puree, Green Beans, and Sprouts.

Then we visited the Independence National Historic Park where you can see the famous Liberty Bell, and where the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were both created.

On our second day, we traveled to Temple University, and took a tour of the campus. They have a large food court, which is mighty cheap, and has a large selection of items. They serve breakfast, dinner, and lunch at the same time, so you can easily get a bite to eat. They also have a mini-shopping sidewalk where you can purchase quick food in stores like 7-11, and Dunkin Donuts. If you’re traveling to Philadelphia, you can’t miss the Philly Cheese Steaks. The best place is Pat’s King Of Steaks at 9th Street (Wharton & Passyunnk Ave.)

Then we visited the Museum Of Art near Franklin Parkway. The paintings were magnificent! They also had Chinese artwork on display, and that was interesting.
