Touring Philadelphia

Founded in 1682, Philadelphia is home to much American history and one of the greatest television shows of all time. You can do historical touristy things like see Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, the Constitution Center, and many other spots. Or do contemporary touristy things like explore the rivalry between Pat's and Geno's or run up the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Check out the creepy dead people at the Mütter Museum.

We've spent many fun nights listening to rock bands at the Khyber (RIP many other dead rock bars we used to frequent), hanging out at the Irish Pub, and having drunken bouts of karaoke upstairs at Yakitori Boy. We've done a lot of walking up and down South Street (Amber used to live near 12th and South) and a lot of feasting in Chinatown. We've spent days and nights in and around the beautiful Rittenhouse Square Park and rainy days inside Reading Terminal Market enjoying the selection of food and vendors.

Philadelphia has a healthy Vietnamese population, most of which resides in South Philly along Washington Avenue where there are many restaurants and shops. We've been there with Duc's parents many times, eating at Nam Phuong or getting baked goods at Ba Le.

Philadelphia also has some of the best vegan restaurants in the country, from the upscale at Horizons to the pizzas at Gianna's. We've enjoyed many brunches with Amber's (newly vegan) mom at Mi Lah and Govinda's. Our vegetarian guests should make it a point to check out a few of these great places.
