Camden Aquarium - Philadelphia
Camden Aquarium Camden Attractions Review

A stunning aquarium across the river from Philly. The huge tank contains gigantic turtles and tiger sharks among other stunning fishes. Also has a tucan exhibit, and watching these birds is a lot of fun. There is also an air carrier there.

WARNING: you may take the NJ subway line and walk to the aquarium, which is what I did, but I would not recommend it. Camden is UGLY, DIRTY and the parts of the Bronx that I have seen (granted, I have not seen many) appears to be a lot safer... Take a river taxi or a normal taxi instead.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars

Harrisburg - Philadelphia

Harrisburg, the capital of Pennsylvania is worth a trip if you are interested in architecture.

The state capitol located there WILL BLOW YOUR MIND. It is very elaborately decorated inside, and is one of the most elaborate buildings in the United States.
