Once again we are treated to some beautiful sights while walking the gorgeous streets of Philly. Beautiful tree lined streets and alleys. Historic and attractive buildings. Great day.

A very quaint alley with interesting houses set side by side along a cobblestone road. A wonderful trip back in time - great for photographers - but wear good walking shoes as the cobblestones can be uneven in places. There was one house being renovated and we were able to see inside - surprisingly large. Definitely a 'must see'.

It was so cool to see old Philadelphia. Between the cobblestone roads and the old architecture, it was amazing to see how different the time period was compared to our world today. I would just recommend wearing good walking shoes cause it is a long walk and you want to be comfortable.

It is a quite interesting little place. Visited in the late afternoon, good place to spend half hour and take some lovely photos.

Our wonderful tour guide, Mary, took us down Elfreth's Alley. It was really neat seeing this historical place. My favorite was the home with the red door.
