The closet you'll get to the Olympics Track & Field within the US! Every May - check it out. Aside from that, a great, great, school/campus.

I am a native Philadelphia and a Penn Alum and I can share that this is a treasure. Of course the academic reputation of this school speaks for itself, but the beauty and serenity of this campus is a Philadelphia treasure. Plan to spend time visiting College Hall, Logan Hall as well as Franklin Field.

U Penn is of course a great school and it is a great place to take a walk when in Philly. Bustling atmosphere and beautiful architecture.

Even on a Sunday there is much ado. Stores are open. The campus is fun with squirrels cavorting all around us. The grounds are clean and fun to explore, especially for the young kids. Lots of area to run and climb.

Visited the University of Pennsylvania archeological museum with grandkids 8 and 9. Admission desk was a bit disorganized, but once we were in, the kids were fascinated with the artifacts. They especially enjoyed the reproductions of rooms and temples and, not surprisingly, the mummies. There's a little place where you can buy a simple lunch, and an awesome gift shop. We plan to go back this spring and take our 3 year old as well.
