The past couple days my husband and I spent some time relaxing and sight seeing in Philadelphia, PA. For our privacy, though we’ve taken hundreds of photos we decided not to share with the public, but rather select a few cool highlights. One was the Eastern State Penitentiary where Al Capone stayed. We spent over two hours on a guided tour that was absolutely awesome. Definitely worth checking out: http://www.easternstate.org/
Of places we ate, the favorite was Fare Restaurant (www.farerestaurant.com) — all organic, local and sustainable. The service was excellent. Even a waitress who wasn’t taking care of us kept looking toward our table and smiling. I asked for sweet potatoes in replacement of white and we weren’t even charged extra. And the food was just perfect! Definitely a place I’d love to go back to.
We stayed at a lovely hotel at a waterfront, with a pool and sauna. So in addition to sight seeing, relaxing was in the picture as well.
On the last day we checked out the Liberty Bell and where the Declaration of Independence was signed, as well as many gift shops. So much to explore and definitely worth going back. It was only my second time in Philly.
