A Rainy Day in Philly

While we were in New York, we took a quick day trip to Philly. We took the bus via Wanderu and it was so inexpensive (~$10 or less one way/person). Braden and I loved the city and both decided we could potentially live here someday. The city has a more casual, historical feel. It was so fun to see historic places like the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall. The day we were there was very rainy so we did not see as much as we would have otherwise but it was still totally worth it.

Wandering around the city hall in the rain. 

This is right downtown - I love the old brick shops. It makes me giddy!

And of course you can't go to Philly without getting a Philly Cheesesteak sandwich. We decided on Sonny's, mostly because the location was easiest to get to, and it was yummy. We typically don't eat a lot of this kind of unhealthy food but you have to have fun on vacation.

One hidden gem in Philly :: Elfreth's Alley. It is America's "oldest residential neighborhood" dating to 1702. Believe it or not, people still live here. This place is magical and the little houses are truly amazing. This place is a must go if you are ever in Philly!


^I adored the patriotism all over Philly
