Hey guys! Welcome back. Today I’m sharing some of my photos from Philadelphia. I met my mom in New York and we drove down for a quick 24 hours. I’ve always wanted to visit Philly and when I saw that my favorite songwriter was going to be promoting his newest album at Milkboy it seemed like the perfect excuse to go.
The parallels between Boston and Philadelphia are so strong I felt right at home in the heart of this Revolutionary city. History is impossible to escape in the city, even as du jour farm-to-table restaurants pop up and vibrant trends show up in the boutique shops fresh out of NYC. It’s hard to ignore the similarities between Elfreth’s Alley and Beacon Hill; and Independence National Park and the Freedom Trail.
We chose to spend our day in Center City, enjoying the charm of Old City and soaking up all the knowledge and history of the Museum District. Given another day, we definitely would have headed out to the Museum of Art to snag a classic Rocky picture (but also because when have you known me to pass up a good art museum?!) so I know there will definitely be a ‘next time’ of the rather soon variety!
Federal Donuts needs to be right up at the top of your food list (yes, right next to a cheesesteak). Their fancy donuts are absolutely out of this world and really take donuts to a whole new level (as my wise dad says, “everything works in a donut”).
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
