Philly Recap

Philly Recap

I wanted to get this up yesterday but a girl only has so much time on her hands. But better late than never. Right?

Friday

Ale and I took the Megabus and arrived around 7:30pm. (I love Megabus by the way, so cheap!). We went straight to our AirBnB to drop off our luggage. We rented a full apartment in Rittenhouse Square and it was great. We then wandered aimlessly around the city where we listened to live music at the Llama Tooth, had a slice at Slice, and finally ending up at Tria Cafe Rittenhouse (definitely recommend this place) for a few final beers.

Just a cute lil’ skyline, ain’t it?

Artsy? Or maybe my phone just takes terrible photos at night

Saturday

We started Saturday out right with lots of food at Reading Terminal Market. This is a seriously must see (eat?) in Philly. Seriously! It’s basically just a giant food court. My favorite was hands down, the fresh salted dough pretzels from Miller’s Twist. Seriously, the best pretzels ever. And so, so fresh! Also we had a sweet little anatomy lesson.

I didn’t buy any but aren’t those chocolates awesome? Next we moved on to history lessons at the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall.

And we also saw Elfreth’s Alley which is the U.S.’s oldest, continuously inhabited street.

We had to try out Rosa’s dollar slice. No complaints for a dollar. You might remember it from Ellen.

Sunday

We spent hours at the Philadelphia Museum of Art followed by cheese steaks at Geno’s. The Philly art museum has an amazing and diverse collection.

Monday

Before we left I definitely had to eat at Reading Terminal Market again. Then hit up a few more museums. First, I learned all about relationship goals at the Rodin Museum.

Last stop was the Barnes Foundation. No photography allowed inside but the outside was beautiful. So here you go.

All I can say is that the collection at the Barnes Foundation was ridiculous. If you get the chance to go, you definitely should.

So the big question is, where should I go next?

The Thinker

Just thinking about where I should go for my next adventure 

Okay guys, I need to make a confession. I didn’t adhere to my 30 day ab challenge while in Philly. =/ I know, shame on me. But I am in the process of making it up. That counts for something, right?

Do you exercise on vacation?
