    Never Going Back

    We travel a lot on our quest to see all the national parks and historic sites.  Philadelphia by far was the worst experience EVER in our travels.  The traffic was unreal.  We got lost in the city, coming out of the city, and in the farm roads of PA.  My...

    It is a beautiful city!

    The culture, history, and architecture is absolutely stunning. One day I will live there and have a vacation house. The Phillies were a dynasty from 07-11 and dominated baseball. The food and ice cream I love. Cheesesteaks and Franklin Fountain. The best ice cream is from there...

    Terrible Place

    I went there this weekend with my g/f. Overall it was a terrible trip. There were plenty of bad things that occurred with no fault to Philly, but there was a lot of stuff that I had against the place. The biggest thing is the people. They are the rudest people I've ever been...
