"Put your walking shoes on!" Packing Lists Tip by kazander

Packing Lists, Philadelphia: 8 reviews and 3 photos

  JFK Plaza with City Hall in the background
by kazander

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Philly has 4 seasons, check the weather before packing your bag, it could be anything to winter coat, scarf and hat, to shorts and a t-shirt.
Definately bring good walking shoes no matter what the weather!

Photo Equipment: It's a beautiful little city, don't forget your camera. I didn't bring my SLR on this trip, I didn't really need it, though I did borrow Lou's a couple of times. I have a Canon Pro1, it was sufficiant.

Miscellaneous: A map or a guidebook would have been handy. I wouldn't have thought I needed one, but it just goes to show, whether near or far from home, they are good to have.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
