I'll say sorry in advance as I'm sure this must have been asked before and it's somewhat of a subjective question, but we are now looking into planning our activities for our upcoming November trip to Philadelphia and trying to figure out what we want to do.
We will be in town for 3.5 full days but are there for a wedding so 1 day will be taken for that. So far there are 7 of us traveling together and we will be staying at the Hotel Palomar. We were already interested in buying the Trolley Works 24hr pass as we thought it would be a good way to ride around the city for a day and hop on/hop off as we like without having to figure out transit or finding taxis as we are an odd number.
My question is, is buying the CityPass worth it for 7 adults? We most likely wouldn't do the Adventure Aquarium (not sure but looks like it's in NJ?) and the Please Touch Museum looks like it's for kids. Eastern State Penitentiary sounds interesting (but is the tour similar to Alcatraz? We did that last year) and the zoo I'm not too interested in as we are heading to Africa in January so yea... I think writing this I am already figuring out what we aren't too interested in seeing...
how about the rest of the stops? The Franklin Institute, National Constitution Center? Are they good to visit? Or should we just book the trolley ourselves if there are different places people recommend to visit? I'm probably jumping the gun by posting this question. I'll also go and read up on the FAQ/Top Questions to see our other options.
