So, in our East Coast Adventure we went from DC to Philly. We were only in the city 24 hours but we managed to do all of the big things while hanging out with friends and it was loverly.
We went directly from the train to a cab to my friend Zoe’s apartment where we immediately left to go get Philly cheesesteaks. Because how could we not?
After deliciously greasy cheesesteaks we trekked over to see the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall. Seriously, we hit our history quota like no other on this trip. It was fun to see the bell and to take the small tour of Independence Hall (despite the guide that talked on and on and on).
Our evening was spent at a restaurant that was featured on Diners, Dives & Drive-Ins and was DELICIOUS. And it was so nice outside we even sat outside (huzzah!). It was so fun to chat and catch up with Zoe and Matt and just, yes (cannot wait for them to visit in December!).
The rest of the night was spent drinking wine and watching bad TV at their place and yes, the best.
The next day we had an amazing breakfast before getting our history on even more. We visited the oldest residential street in the US followed by a tour of Betsy Ross’s house. See? History!
We had the best weather to explore and hang out and it was great. Before we knew it it was time to head to the bus stop for our ride to NY! And onward our adventure went.
Thanks Philly, you were swell.
Have you been to Philly? Had a cheesesteak? What do you think?
