Philadelphia Travel Guide

Tiffany Geiger

Cory and I recently took a day trip to Philadelphia. We're trying to get in a better habit of exploring our immediate surroundings and Philadelphia is surprisingly close to Jersey City. It was only about a 1.5 hour car ride and is about the same by train.

Where to stay: 

  • Hotel Monaco - A Kimpton property in an updated historical building in the middle of Center City
  • Loews Philly - I love a Loews property and this one is in the middle of center city and absolutely gorgeous.

Where to Eat & Drink: 

  • John's Roast Pork - the ultimate cheesesteak. It's super small so plan to get it to go and it's cash only! 
  • Barcelona Wine Bar - A cute wine bar with lots of offerings
  • Vesper - A cocktail bar with great seafood and a hidden speakeasy
  • Sabrina's Cafe - Delicious for brunch and BYOB!
  • Reading Terminal Market - One of the first public food markets before they were trendy with lots of food options! 
  • Root Restaurant & Bar - The trendiest little spot in Fishtown (reminded me of Williamsburg in Brooklyn) that was delicious. Great for a date night. 
  • Weckerly's - the cutest ice cream spot in Fishtown with home made ice cream sandwiches and artisan flavors.

What to do: 

  • Liberty Bell - Sort of disappointing to be honest, but quick and easy (and free) to do so might as well check it off the list. 
  • Rittenhouse Row - A cute little street with beautiful townhouses.
  • Elfreth's Alley - The oldest residential street in America.
  • Fish Town - The Williamsburg of Philadelphia, a little hipster and young with some solid restaurants and bars.
  • Rocky Steps - Enough said.
  • City Hall - Right near the Liberty Bell

Tips & Advice

  • We were surprised by the number of restaurants in Philadelphia that were cash only so be prepared. 
  • Philadelphia is a walking city but honestly it was way more spread out than we expected and ended up driving places more than we planned.
  • So much great food! Beyond the Cheesesteak.
