July 22, 2015
Philadelphia City Hall
I fell in love with Philadelphia the first time I went there so I felt like I needed to go back there on my second visit to the US. I know, I know! I said that I will stay there for a longer time on my next visit however, I am once again constrained in time. I fell sick during this holiday of mine which had a huge effect on my travel plans. So once again, I had only about 12 hours to spare to see what Philadelphia

Things To Do in Philadelphia: Feel the summer heat at Blue Cross RiverRink Summerfest.

Blue Cross RiverRink Summerfest
Our last stop of our Philadelphia tour was at the Blue Cross RiverRink Summerfest. This place holds a special place in my heart as it was our favorite destination when we first visited Philadelphia. It was winter at the time so it was tagged as a Winterfest complete with an ice-skating rink and what looks like a ski cabin. Now that it is summer, they have changed its name to Summerfest and the ice-skating rink morp

Philadelphia's Magic Gardens

After our tour at the Eastern State Penitentiary, we went to Philadelphia City Hall to go to the Observation Deck which we weren’t able to visit the first time we were in Philly. As luck would have it, we were not able to access it the second time around as well as the tickets were already sold out for the day. The next available ticket was for October. Yaiks! So with a heavy heart, we checked out John F. Ken

EAstern State Penitentiary
After our breakfast at Reading Terminal Market, we immediately proceeded to Eastern State Penitentiary. We were not able to visit this place the first time we went to Philadelphia as there was not enough time for us to do so which is why I made sure that we’d be able to see it on our second trip to Philly. Eastern State Penitentiary is considered to be the world’s first true penitentiary. It has set t

Where To Eat in Philadelphia: Reading Terminal Market

June 11, 2015
Reading Terminal Market
Reading Terminal Market is the nation’s oldest operating farmer’s market which was established in the 1800’s. There’s quite a huge section of it which is solely devoted to locally-grown and farm-fresh produce of the Amish community of the Lancaster county which is very famous for the restaurant cooks around the city. I haven’t been to any farmer’s market but my sister who is a ca
