    The variety of food options was tantalizing. There was some other non-food related shops there too but we didn't explore those too much. We visited there because I heard that it is a great first place to visit for tourists, and also local favorite. Would definitely recommend.

    I couldn't think of a more unique attraction I've visited at a more reasonable price. You could spend as long as you want exploring the outside installation. You'll keep finding unique objects protruding from the mosaic.

    This whole art exhibit is honestly so wonderful and helps shed a light on local and modern artists trying to better their communities. This was possibly the most special place we visited on our trip to Philadelphia and we won't soon forget it. I will recommend it to every single person going there.

    Admission is timed, so buy tickets ahead of time and show up on time! You have a 30 minute window to enter. The price is affordable (in my opinion) at 12$ USD for a student. 15$ for an adult.

    We enjoyed our visit to The Italian Market. There are still several great restaurants and stores. Perhaps not as many as years past, but still enough independent local place to make this an authentic neighborhood

    As a traveler I respect the effort by this community to provide a enjoyable experience for their guests

    This is a great place to visit early before it’s too crowded a d get a treat at one of the shops

    Parking is a challenge, there is lot or two in the immediate area

    Go enjoy

    It has a lot of stores, but sometimes it's too crowd and ghetto. The stores are nice and normally you can find good deals here...

    I purchased tickets for my daughter's birthday and then COVID hit! We finally got there & it was worth the wait! The white blobs didn't do much for us but the other rooms were great! We all loved the paint your body room & the message wall. Each room was different & we had a great time exploring. My 13 yr. old granddaughter loved it, too! Well worth the price of admission! It was especially nice because we had to reserve a time and it wasn't crowded. We'll be back!

    A very good friend of mine had recently tried glassblowing, quickly became hooked on it and gave me the gift of a session with he and one of the instructors, Reba. I am anything but a crafts-guy, I’m not handy in any way but was curious about the process and accepted his kind offer. I had a great time and can see why he’s become hooked! Reba was a wonderful instructor, very patient, obviously highly skilled and an expert on the subject. For anyone who’s had any thought of trying something very different, I can attest that they make this a unique and fun way to spend a few hours and the finished products will be cherished for a long time to come. I look forward to my next visit, many thanks to my good friend Blair and to Reba and the good folks at East Falls Glassworks. V

    I love this Philadelphia gem. I bought a wonderful piece for myself a few years ago. And I keep going back for gifts. Staff is super helpful as well. The pic is of my Fiona that is in my house in the Dominican Republic. I love the affordable art!!

    A visit to Macy's for holiday shopping is the shared experience of many Americans. The Philadelphia store has a grandeur and opulence comparable to the Herald Square flagship. The Christmas lighting show is a must. Bargains are available at the second floor.

    A relatively small mall with a nice domed glass ceiling and when I visited in December the Xmas Tree was beautiful. There were a few shops I wanted to visit and they had what I was after. It was also opposite my hotel so very handy. If you are a hardened serious shopper though you may want to find a larger mall.

    We happened upon this space because we were staying on Broad St to see a show at the Academy & looking for small, lesser touristy activities to do with our artsy teen. The exhibit space is small and easy in/out from the street. You could stay 5 mins or 30. It’s free and the staff was very kind. We loved it and can’t wait to see future exhibits!

    The Ross Gallery at the University of Pennsylvania is a hidden gem where I recently saw World on View: Objects from Universal Expositions, 1851-1915.
    This is a walk back in time illustrating many technological innovations as well as the west’s fascination with the orient, African trade, the popularization of fancy refreshment equipment, the importance of the sewing machine, the first electric kettles, beautiful American Indian baskets, fancy promotional items, and more.

    The first Great Exhibition of the Works of Industry of All Continents was held in 1851 in Hyde Park, London. Since then more than 100 world's fairs have been held in more than 20 countries throughout the world. They have functional as well as aesthetic objectives and have become huge entertainments.

    I enjoyed this walk back in time. The exhibit closes on July 29, 2018

    For some of the most best kept secrets in Chestnut Hill you must visit the Market at the Fareway! It’s a place to enjoy a meal with friends and make new people. The variety of food available will keep every one happy from brick oven pizza to Vietnamese Pho! The IPAs served at the Chestnut Hill brewery are great and filling. It is a must stop on your next visit to the area!!

    Our bus tour stopped by this site so we walked around a bit. This was a major market in early Philadelphia and you can envision what that looked like. The lighted tunnel like structure is picturesque

    Cherry Street Pier was a nice little find. It is a small Pier not far from the Benjamin Franklin Bridge and next to the Race Street Pier. Mainly has small container offices for artists but there was a couple of food trucks in and some casual seating and sun loungers right near the riverfront. Enjoyed some amazing fried corn fritters there while basking on the sun lounge and enjoying the great view of the Benjamin Franklin bridge and the Delaware River.
