Philadelphia for a long weekend


Well-Known Member
Thanks everyone for all the help planning my weekend in philly. Just got back yesterday and had a great time. Unfortunately it was FREEZING the entire time so that made it a bit difficult to get around w/ the kiddos...especially since a lot of the sites we went to see were closed (The Mint & Betsy Ross House) or under construction...we walked 8 blocks while it was 28 degrees but w/ the wind chill it felt 10 degrees to see the LOVE statue only to find out it was in storage while that area is under construction :doh: The St Patrick's Day parade was awesome. Great experience, but it makes me want to go even more to Chicago to see their parade. The Reading Terminal Market was one of our favorites spots. We ate our way through there the first day. Some of the stuff was really good others not so much. We stayed at the Embassy Suites in Center City. It was super nice, lots of amenities, and perfect location. All in all a great weekend. Thanks again.
