My family and I are going to be there for a short too days on a small vacation. we are either flying or taking the train (a short hop from Boston). Is there anything Special going on this week?

Hi there Dan. It's Philly, btw, but that's not important  Smile. I would highly suggest going to the Constitution Center, the Art Museum, and the downtown area around the Liberty Bell and City Hall. You'll find places like Ben Franklin's gravesite around there, and some other pretty cool places. If you get the chance you should try a cheesesteak from Pat's...not Geno's...evillll. And remember it's "Wit" not "with".  Wink

The Franklin Institute is one place to go, although it's not as good as it used to be when it had a BA 707-400 on display.

Eat at the Old Original Bookbinders.

Go to the old RR station and eat a cheesesteak.

Go to the Penn RR museum in Lancaster.

Visit the USS New Jersey across the river.

See Independence Hall.

See the Liberty Bell.

How much time you got? There's plenty to do.



Is my Pan Am ticket to the moon still good?

Considering the 707-320 was the last model made and had the longest range of any 707 model it begs the question what the heck is a 707-400?

Or go to Penn's Landing take stoll on the USS Olympia Cruiser, part of the Great White Fleet, and there is also a Sub, the USS Becuna. Is the Moshilu still open?

Philly has a world-class art museum. Check out the Philadelphia Museum of Art. They have a great collection of Rodin sculptures. Plus plenty of recognizable works of Wester art throught the ages.

Sadly, the olympics will still be going on at that point. I also have the Bruins here, they are not that bad.

If you put off your trip until March 3rd, you can watch the Philthy Phantoms take on your hometown Bruins. Wear your Bruins jersey, I'm sure the Philly fans won't say anything, not...
