It was my first night in Philadelphia. I was at the bar, had just ordered dinner. A lady walks in and says to the bartender "gimme a shot of jack". The bartender sets her up. She announces "to a hard days work and to love lost". She slams down her shot, puts her money down and walks out of the bar.
I think I'm gonna like this Philadelphia place.
And LOTS of history. Philadelphia is one of the cradles of freedom, of American history. The Declaration of Independence was written here. It was America's capital for a while. So many famous people. People who mattered. Philadelphia matters. Always has, always will.
Come join me on an adventure to freedom's front yard. My page is a work in progress. Hope you'll come back for more (but maybe not in February - it gets cold here!)
Did you know that Rocky came from Philadelphia? Did you know they filmed Rocky in Philadelphia? Yeah, it's true! more travel advice
Philly's Chinatown comes alive during the Chinese New Year celebrations. Obviously, it's only once a year but check it... more travel advice
