Travel with Me: Weekend Edition / Philadelphia

Pennsylvania, Philadelphia Guide (B): Travel with Me: Weekend Edition / Philadelphia

I’m back with a different version of a Travel with Me post called Travel with Me: Weekend Edition. For trips that are just a day or two, I’ll write a shorter post that will mostly contain pictures and small descriptions. I hope that these posts can help you plan a short trip yourself!

I’m kicking off my Travel with Me: Weekend Edition posts with a review of our one-night trip to Philadelphia! We met up with my cousin and his wife and had a great time exploring historical sites and eating tasty (not-so-good-for-you) food.

For my hotel rating system, I’ll use a ranking from 1 to 5 (1 – absolutely terrible, 2 – mediocre, 3 – good, 4 – great, 5 – fantastic). For restaurants, I’ll give a Thumbs Up! or a Thumbs Down, and for activities, I’ll simply give short descriptions.

Last Friday (January 17th) we drove up to Pennsylvania for a one-night, one-day trip to explore Philly with my cousin Josh and his wife Meredith.

We booked our hotel stay through Living Social at the Wyndham Philadelphia Historic District. It was in a perfect location; we were able to walk to all of the historical sites we were interested in visiting as well as to all of the restaurants we chose. The room was fairly nice with a very comfortable bed. The hotel was heavily under construction and, on more than one occasion, we had to wait in a long line at the front desk. Overall, I would give this hotel 2.5 out of 5 stars. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
