{Weekend away} On the streets of Philadelphia

We were going to have a mid-winter jaunt to the Bahamas, then it was South Miami but we ended up in Philadelphia for two nights…And although we weren’t lying on a beach drinking cocktails it was great to get away for a few nights (the only thing we were missing was a tan). As it turns out Philly has a lot of historic sights to visit but one of the best things about it is that it is small enough that you can literally walk everywhere (which certainly gives us some perspective regarding the size of New York city).
