The Rodin Museum in Philly was an unexpected find. If you are a fan of sculpture this is a must. Just up the street is the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The entry fee for the Philadelphia Museum also covers the Rodin, but they don't tell you that at...

Philadelphia is a great escape for me because it is an easy train ride from NYC, and most of my favorite destinations can be reached on foot. My favorite activities here include browsing among the incredible art collections at The Barnes...

Visitors to Philadelphia should not miss out on an iconic local treat—the soft pretzel. Sure, you can find them pretty much everywhere in Philly, but the real deal is baked fresh daily. At the Reading Terminal Market, go to the place where...

A coffee shop that sells beer? Luckily, at Ultimo you can have both if you like. Grab a seat in this cozy cafe and order a coffee (which is prepared using a Chemex), or my personal favorite, a macchiato. Browse the ever-changing beer selection,...

Long before I regaled myself (twice daily) with gelato in Rome, I tried it in my hometown of Philadelphia. Now that I live in Paris, opportunities to tuck into a Capogiro cup or cone are far more limited so I make a point of stopping into their...

The Franklin Bar, a sort of modern speakeasy, peddles period-accurate cocktails (with a few inventive twists) served up by modish, bow-tied bartenders. Best to make a reservation to snag a spot.

This historic market has been in operation since 1892, and is beloved by locals as a destination for lunch, grocery shopping, or buying regional gifts at the Pennsylvania General Store. More than 70 businesses sell fresh wares here, including ice...

Congress Hall, Philadelphia, PA 19106, USA
The guide called this the "kindergarden of the United States." He meant it to describe where and when the U.S. political system was created and where the founding fathers learned to govern. I wondered if that phrase couldn't also describe the...
