On day two we headed to Philadelphia. We used a ‘Groupon’ for tickets on the Philadelphia Sightseeing Tours double decker bus. Now as someone who is somewhat physically challenged (fibromyalgia sucks), we thought this would be a good way to reduce the walking a bit. It was great, and we really enjoyed doing it even if it did get a bit cold towards the end. But we barely scratched the surface of all the things to see and do there. So for anyone going to see Philadelphia here is my suggestion. Don’t think you can do it in a day. Do the bus tour the first day and see everything from the bus. Then on other days you can pick which things you really want to see. We will go again, so we can spend a few hours in each attraction like the museums and the penitentiary, and take the time to walk around Chinatown.
This trip we did have lunch at the Reading Terminal; yes a Philly Cheesesteak, YUMMY! I can’t believe I didn’t take a picture of it. But I was so taken by everything that was going on around me. It is a place you could sit for hours and just watch everything going by. Let alone all there is to see there. Our cousins were raving about a place to get gelato, and they were so right!
One of the younger cousins gave us some music too!
The trip home was a blur as we were happily exhausted.
