During a tour of colleges, ours kids loved the entire campus but particularly the Locust Walk. The historical feel in the middle of Philadelphia was great!

Walking the campus of U Penn is another feast for the eyes. The architecture is in keeping with one of the oldest schools of higher learning in the country. Of course there are new buildings as well but the overall feel of the campus is nostalgic. Also visit the U Penn bookstore to get a huge assortment of U Penn souvenirs. Worth the walk from where you are staying.

This is a wonderful museum, never crowded. Always new exhibits. My favorite was the Egyptian display. Walking along the campus is very beautiful with the old buildings and architecture.

It was a good one week spent at Wharton learning about Mergers and acquisitions. One of the best campuses with a good walk to river just round the corner.
