    You haven't really visited Philadelphia unless you have visited the Reading Terminal Market. So many kiosks with delicious food to choose from. Miller's pretzels is a must stop. We also enjoyed Original Turkey though I don't think you could go wrong no matter what you choose.

    Get your tickets in advance! I did not realize tickets were needed and that there was a timed entry. We only had to wait half an hour though. Beautiful, magical place. While walking to the gardens. We came across the same style mosaics in alleys and on the sides of the buildings, which was a great build up! It truly is a beautiful place.

    We stop here every time we travel to Philly. seems to be getting smaller and a little less "Italian" every time we go. Many other ethnic groups are moviing in as the Italians leave. Still a interesting place though.

    It has a lot of stores, but sometimes it's too crowd and ghetto. The stores are nice and normally you can find good deals here...

    Great little museum. Some very different pieces to see. Would enjoy some time there with my yoga mat. Right near Reading Market.

    I absolutely loved the pumpkin making class. I went with my daughter. The demonstration before we started was awesome. The step by step instructions were spot on. Michael was our instructor. It is very hands on they let you do everything yourself. I am definitely going to go to another class. The studio was very clean. Everyone was so nice. I had a total blast. If you always wanted to do this. This is the place to go. KELLEY SWEET.

    The exhibitions change. The gift shop is great. Merchandise that is made by local artists is for sale here. The prices are reasonable. The location is front-and-center to museums, restaurants, parking garages, and restaurants.

    We wandered in here at night and were the only two people here apart from a couple of artists in their rooms. You can see some really good artworks of different types. In the day time, there would be toilets and places to get food and drink and then the glass doors open at the far end to get outside; it was icy when we visited so this was closed off for safety but in summer I imagine it is very nice but busier.

    The Ross Gallery at the University of Pennsylvania is a hidden gem where I recently saw World on View: Objects from Universal Expositions, 1851-1915.
    This is a walk back in time illustrating many technological innovations as well as the west’s fascination with the orient, African trade, the popularization of fancy refreshment equipment, the importance of the sewing machine, the first electric kettles, beautiful American Indian baskets, fancy promotional items, and more.

    The first Great Exhibition of the Works of Industry of All Continents was held in 1851 in Hyde Park, London. Since then more than 100 world's fairs have been held in more than 20 countries throughout the world. They have functional as well as aesthetic objectives and have become huge entertainments.

    I enjoyed this walk back in time. The exhibit closes on July 29, 2018

    Mannequin is one of my favorite movies and I felt like I was in the middle of the set! What a beautiful landmark! Wish I could have heard some music from the organ, but it looked gorgeous!

    What a cool and interesting place! The offerings were so diverse and interesting. I fell in love with the brownies. George was working and he shared so much about the history of the business, the different candies, and the beautiful features of the building. We went back a second time, but missed having George make us a beverage. This is definitely worth a stop if you are in Philadelphia Old Towne.

    For some of the most best kept secrets in Chestnut Hill you must visit the Market at the Fareway! It’s a place to enjoy a meal with friends and make new people. The variety of food available will keep every one happy from brick oven pizza to Vietnamese Pho! The IPAs served at the Chestnut Hill brewery are great and filling. It is a must stop on your next visit to the area!!

    A relatively small mall with a nice domed glass ceiling and when I visited in December the Xmas Tree was beautiful. There were a few shops I wanted to visit and they had what I was after. It was also opposite my hotel so very handy. If you are a hardened serious shopper though you may want to find a larger mall.

    Our bus tour stopped by this site so we walked around a bit. This was a major market in early Philadelphia and you can envision what that looked like. The lighted tunnel like structure is picturesque
