New York Travel Guide: Philly Walking Tour

On Sunday during trip to the east coast we drove with our friends Shane and Amelia out to Philadelphia to meet up with some mutual friends Sam and Katie-Ann, to check out the history this city has to offer! We ate some amazing food, saw all the historical sites, and walked over 30k steps :)

Geno's Philly Cheesesteak: 1219 S 19th St
Our first stop was to get a classic Philly cheesesteak! We decided on Geno's versus Pats, because honestly the line was shorter haha It was delicious, and I got dripping grease all over!

Reading Terminal Market: 51 North 12th Street
This is a fun indoor market with so much fun food! We were hoping to hit the Amish Donut shop but they were closed when we were there, bummer! You guys will have to go for me ;)

Liberty Bell: 6th St & Market St
This is a given in Philadelphia, right? So cool to see all the history here!

Independence Hall
Seriously SO COOL. I feel like I'm in 'National Treasure' ;)

Christ Church: 20 N American Street
A local we met at Gens's suggested we stop by this historic church where Betsy Ross and Ben Franklin worshipped! The architecture is stunning, and the greenery beautiful.

Elfreths Alley: 124-126 Elfreth's Alley
This alley is so darling! It is one of the first row of homes in the United States, and there are still people living in these quaint homes. The perfect photo op :)

Franklin Square: 200 N 6th Street
We walked through this gorgeous park and took a quick seat here. Didn't snag any pictures because we were having so much fun chatting with our friends and resting our feet!

Amada: 217-219 Chestnut St
Our friends have such great taste in food and suggested we go here for dinner at this tapas restaurant. OMG. I'm drooling just thinking of the Ensalada de Jamon! It's a bit spendy here, but totally worth it. I learned that a lot of New York chefs move their restaurants to Philly because the rent is cheaper, so it has become an amazing food scene!

The Franklin Fountain: 116 Market St
We ended the night on an ice cream note! Loved how our scoops came in these fun Chinese take-out style boxes :)
