The main reason why we went was for Chris to check out Drexel University. He's going to be a Junior in the Fall, he's getting so old! We took a tour of the university which was nice, but exploring the city that evening and the next day was my favorite!

|Pennsylvania Railroad (Monopoly anyone?)|
|Art Museum. Steps "Rocky" ran.|
|Beautiful Catholic Church|
|City Hall. So Cool!|
|Betsy Ross House|
|On the water...|

The next day we took a tour of Independence Hall and saw the Liberty Bell! It was pretty awesome to stand in the same room as all those that signed the Declaration of Independence.
|Courtroom (Middle cage is where the accused would stand during the entire trial, that's where the name "standing trial" originated)|

Before heading out we stopped at the Redding Terminal Market to gawk at all the amazing food! If it were lunch time we probably would have stopped to eat something. Really cool place and I would recommend checking it out if you are ever in Philadelphia.
On our way home from Philly, we stopped at my great aunt's house. That was my first time meeting her and it was finally great to meet her and chat for a little bit.
Have you ever been to Philadelphia? What was your favorite part?
